Bangkok Suvarnabuhmi Airport

In late fall 2018 I took a spotter trip to Bangkok, the trip I have had in mind for a few years and my plan was to combined it with one or two other airports. I decided to start in Bangkok and I stay at Hotel Phoenix, which is an excellent spotter hotel as they have a roof terrace where you can take pictures of landing planes in the morning if they land on 19R, but while I was there it only happened once. The pictures in this album is form four days of shooting.In late fall, I took a spotter trip to Bangkok, the trip I had in mind for a few years and my plan was to combined it with one or two other airports. I decided to start in Bangkok and I stay at Hotel Phoenix, which is an excellent spotter hotel as they have a roof terrace where you can take pictures of landing planes in the morning if they land on 19R, but while I was there it only happened once. another great thing about Hotel Phoenix was that their kitchen made some decent food and served a good breakfast. The pictures in this album is from four days of shooting. During my stay I meet some German spotters, and it´s always nice to have someone to to talk with during the time waiting on the next plane. During my stay they use the same lane configuration the whole week. In the morning they use 01L and sometimes around midday they change to runway 01R. At that time We normally went to “Bike Terminal & Cafe” where there is a very nice restroom and where they make some great food, did I tell that the cafe has aircondition.

First it was my intention to make a description of where I have take my picture, but the guys on www.Spotterguide.net has already done a fantastic job , just try looking at this link to spotters guide: Btw the man in the middle with the hat on the picture which follow the description on spot 7 is me.
