Re: last flight at night to Udon?

The bus leaves at 9 in the evening from Suvarnabhumi bus station. Arrives in Udon about 05:30. The price is about 500 baht. Decent VIP bus.

Can be booked online via 12Go Asia. You pick up your ticket from the bus station kiosk.

Re: Legality of e-cigarettes??

Malc - Thanks for posting your reply. I've just checked out a Thailand vapers forum and it would appear tread carefully is the name of the game. I may just put my e cigs in my suitcase and B & H it until I get to Udon.

Re: Legality of e-cigarettes??

Has anyone recently carried an electronic cigarette in their hand luggage on a domestic flight? I'm wondering if it's still okay to do so. I last flew (domestic) in May and it was okay then.
