    Try flying with non-Chinese airlines. OhOh, the alternates charge higher prices, as well.


    One way to bypass the "pain".

    Insist you and family members can choose their holidays prior to you accept job offers or family's "schools rules".
    Being subject to price gouging over CNY, when my flight was a return trip from Thailand to UK? Not amused.

    At that time I wanted to spend time with my kids while they were on school holidays. Being aware of travel costs is ok, but not hidden price gouging.

    You should fcuk off back to China, when the price is right, of course.

    We’ve done numerous Thai dives over the years, however this was the first time we were able to see a nurse shark.

    Travel from Thailand to UK dummy.

    Why would CNY be on my radar? China is not nearly as important as you seem to think it should be.

    oh I nearly forgot. Get fooked you chinky sycophant.

    Of course, nobody in Thailand is of Chinese ethnicity, or celebrates CNY. You are truly dumb swish.

    Fun tourist morning.

    An aerial view (not mine)




    There was a little hesitation (confined spaces). 80 meters of cave to get inside.

    Start




    Finish




    Inside






    The cave






    Safe again.

    Huge deal here in Roi Et. The missus who might have a couple Chinese gene remnants from an ancestor that wandered in 1,000 years ago always does the Chinese New Year thing at the house. All sorts of fruits and red cloth bits scattered thoughout the house. All just another opportunity to have a bit of fun.
    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

    And unfortunately for me, I am not a schoolkid. Travelling during either School holidays, our 'Festive season', or CNY are not my preferred option. Capiche?

    If you are not a ‘school kid’ why do you post like one?

    If you are not in possession of an intellectual deficit, why do you post as if you are?

    What a pathetic retort. Are you trying to prove Switch correct? Really, there's no need as it's already clear.
