Re: Airport Transit Question__Different airlines.

I believe you may have to go through immigration and re-check-in,,,,,,,,,,,,,,however,there are many many transit desks at Schipol when you arrive.Suggest you visit one of them before exiting,generally they are extremely helpful and i am sure they will point you in the right direction.

Bluport/Intercontinental traffic lights!

I have just witnessed a very very near miss,whereby a young mother with a push chair,and daughter were nearly mowed down by a 4x4,red plate, which did not stop at the red light, after the traffic attendant waved them over.By pure luck,possibly Budha intervened,they survived thankfully. Two questions...

Re: Hua Hin Beach Polo 2017

Would it not be beneficial to both the Hua Hin Forum administration and Intercontinental to perhaps discuss the current uncertainties,and resolve any miss-understanding?

Re: Pay 1% more in VAT, PM asks Thais

A little off topic,but i honestly do not believe that the people who are making reservations in the Intercontinental or other supposed 5* hotels in Thailand are actually concerned about this.The majority of people who book, i assume are regular customers of the IHG and therefore are fully aware of t...
