I still remembered the first chapter of my form 1 history textbook. Long ago, the Malay Peninsular was known as Suvarnabhumi, or translated to English from Sanskrit would mean "The Gold Peninsular".

21st October 2014 - This is Suvarnabhumi International Airport in Bangkok. The airport that looked like a garden as there were mini gardens with colourful and fresh orchids, and a museum for the gigantic statues all over the place.

just arrived

A praying room for Muslims is available in the airport so it is very convenient for Muslim travellers. 

Unfortunately I could not find halal food at the food court so we had to settle for the mango with sticky rice and sandwiches. There was actually a Muslim restaurant somewhere selling briyani - I saw a poster about in the praying room after we had finished eating.

Our flight was delayed for 1 1/2 hours but a comfortable airport could ease the stress a bit, at least. However, credit should be given for the extra effort in making the place very Siamese, with all the fresh flowers and really big statues which had already become the attractions to the visitors, locals and foreigners alike.
