Although it was my first time flying with Thai Vietjet Air when I booked the flight from Bangkok to Chiang Rai, it wasn't my first time hearing about Vietjet Air as I've seen some review for Thai Vietjet Air on the media.
I remember the first time Vietjet Air started their flight operations from and to Jakarta, the Indonesian media basically nicknamed them “the airline with bikini flight attendants.” I didn't know that they have a Thai subsidiary, as I only knew Vietjet Air as a Vietnam-based low-cost airline.
It wasn't until my boyfriend and I decided to book a flight from Bangkok to Chiang Rai that I realized that they have Thai Vietjet Air in Thailand, which caters to many domestic and international flights from Bangkok. In this post, I'm going to share my experience of flying with Thai Vietjet Air for the first time, based on my flight from Bangkok to Chiang Rai!

My flight to Istanbul recently was actually my first time flying with Emirates, and surprisingly, it was also my first time visiting Dubai for real. Back when I worked as a flight attendant, I flew to Dubai a few times but it was never with a layover due to the short distance between United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia.
So in this post, I'm going to write about my experience of having a red-eye hour flight with Emirates and spending a few hours for layovers in Dubai after midnight.
My flight was changed by the Emirates a couple of times since I booked the ticket earlier this year. As a result, my ETA in Dubai was slightly before midnight and I had to find out the best things to do around Dubai when almost everyone fell asleep.
Surprisingly, while there's a lot of information about transit in Dubai, I barely found anything about a layover in Dubai after midnight. So that's why I'm trying to fill the gap by writing this post!
So, how was my first flight with Emirates and what could you do in Dubai for your midnight layover? Here we go! 🙂
So, after almost two years of not leaving my hometown, I finally made my first trip overseas since the pandemic. Although, if I gotta be honest, I felt like I had to start from square one because things got a little awkward with all the health protocols and all.
When I tried to book a shuttle bus from Bandung to the airport in Jakarta, I was a little lost on where I should book the ticket first as if I had never done it before. Eventually, I made a booking through Traveloka with Bhinneka Shuttle.
It was my first time using Bhinneka Shuttle since I usually used Primajasa or Cititrans for the shuttle bus to Soekarno-Hatta Airport. However, I decided to give it a try since I got a discount on Traveloka and the ticket for Bhinneka Shuttle is the lowest one compared to other shuttle companies.
I paid for only IDR 165,000 (around $11.55 USD) from their pool in Pasteur (which was convenient for me, as it's close to my home address!) to Soekarno-Hatta Airport. Since I already booked a hotel close to the airport and the hotel management told me that they'd pick me up at Terminal 3, I asked the driver to drop me off there.
