Hi
Just back and the Taksin is adamant it will open on the 28th, even though friends who are working out there shake their heads in disbelief. Expect a lot of work to be still going on around you as you disembark, but by Christmas it will be fully functional and I believe that is the aim.
So you are not unduly upset, I can tell you when HongKong and Singapore and KL opened their airports it was a shambles, and I expect nothing less from Bangkok. You may recall that HKG actually had to revert back to the old airport for a while, but the Thais are wonderful and they will get you through it all. Yes the taxi will cost more, but still only a fraction of what the SYD hacks charge. The APT hotels were not ready last week, but if you don't want to hop into Sukhumvit Road, why don't you grab a limo down to the Sheraton Pattaya, regards
