Hi Cliff,

Thanks very much from both of us. All good things must come to an end, well not an end, just a few months delay before we come back, and it has been very good indeed! Seeing Khao Lak virtually throughout the whole Dry Season has broadened our experience and hopefully made us better equipped to answer future posts and persuade any who need persuading to come visit this wonderful part of the world.

Thanks to all TA members from various parts of the globe for coming to the Get Togethers at the Everyday, 6 were held altogether with over 50 participating and sharing their travel news and views, especially on Khao Lak.

We too hope to meet you and Annie one day but we have no plans for coming here in the Wet Season at this stage so we look forward to your "reports from the Khao Lak surf" in due course.

Regards

Alan & Barbara

Hi Alan and Barbara,

It must be quite emotional after the length of time you have been there. Safe journey from me too and hope you do not get caught up in the flight delays.

Actually lloking forward to the cool Englosh Spring weather after the intense heat of the last few weeks. Even the locals say it has been unusually hot for the time of year.Hopefully the volcanis ash will have cleared by next Tuesday, otherwise we may be stranded in Kuala Lumpur. Oh Dear, what a pity, never mind!

Hi Mossie,

Thanks for kind words.

Well, we are in Kuala Lumpur but Emirates are not flying anyone to Dunbai from here let alone UK nor are they paying for or providing accommodation here. Wished we had stayed in Khao Lak!!!

We can cancel or rebook another destination with Emirates for no charge. We can't rescedule until another date. A family here en route to UK from Borneo were offered 27th April as earliest "possible" date to reschedule. They fly to Dubaii tonight and arre going to stay on stand-by there until they can fly to anywhere in Europe then they will make their way home to Newccasltle from there. However, all Eurostar (cross Channel) trains are full for foreseeeable future. Unfortunately we would have to pay for another flight if we went somewhere else AND Emirates don't fly to Khao Lak!!! :)

So here were in the other KL until we find out whether our scheduled flight on Tuesday at 2am will go or not.
