My Actual Journey From Singapore to Thailand

Woof folks, I hope all is going well on your side! ☺

You may remember, I recently moved to Thailand. I’ve already told you about my packing experiences, my wonderful stay in a swanky hotel prior to departure and how I was duped into thinking that I was going to ‘Pie Land’, rather than Thailand. What I neglected to share with you was my actual trip from Singapore to Thailand.

So, here goes…

My journey began early in the morning after we checked-out from the hotel. The staff were very helpful in looking after us while we waited for my transport agent to prepare and load my crate into the van.

Here I am with Dad, waiting patiently to board my ‘limousine’.

All ready to head to the airport!

After a 30 minute drive, we arrived at Singapore’s Changi International Airport. The airport ground staff lifted my crate onto a trolley and wheeled me to the check-in counter. Man, I felt like a VIP (Very Important Pooch!)

Me at the check-in counter.

My paws were crossed that I would get an upgrade! After all, I should have plenty of frequent-flyer miles having previously travelled from Australia to Singapore, Singapore to Korea, Korea to China, China to Holland, Holland to Italy and Italy to Singapore.

One more formality before boarding the plane. I had to be weighed…

Can you believe that it took 5 men to lift my crate and have it weighed? 
“I’m not that fat you know!!!”

Soon it was boarding time.

The Missus made sure that everyone knew there was someone very important inside my crate!

“Yours Truly, of course!”

Before I knew it, we had left Singapore and I was up in the air.

This map shows my flight path from Singapore to Bangkok. The journey took only 2 hours…

…and then I was on the runway at Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport.

A quick pass through Thailand’s quarantine office…

…and then I was quickly loaded into my new Thai ‘limousine’.

All loaded, ready for the drive from Bangkok Airport to my new home in Pattaya.

Here’s the route we took. The drive lasted a little less than two hours.

And voila! Here we are outside of my new home. First they unloaded my bed…

…then it was my turn.

Safely arrived at my new home in Pattaya. I’ll tell you much more about the place in my later blogs.

For now, Sawadee-Krap!

That's quite the trip! Do they let you out for potty breaks in between? I'm so glad you made it there safely.

I'm glad you made the trip safely to your new home! I know how your Mom and Dad must've been so worried when they couldn't see you, and were so happy when they got to after the flight!
