Weather in Penang is now unpredictable where it can be hot in the morning and heavy rain in the afternoon for one or two hours and then back to hot condition again after that. I am hoping that Thailand will not have the same weather condition when I am there next month. It will be a short family trip to Bangkok by train from Butterworth. Even though there are direct flights by from Penang to Bangkok but I would prefer to use train instead of flying there because it’s cheaper. At the same time, I can enjoy the beautiful scenery of both country along the way from Butterworth to Bangkok.
I have selected Bangkok due to the limited five days period which I have and Thailand is the nearest to go with my family. Eventhough Thailand will hold their general election on December 23rd, I don’t see any problem going there. The other place which I have in mind beside Thailand is Australia. Australia is the perfect destination to go in term of budget and what they have to offer. I will be able to get cheap flights from Jetstar and AirAsia. Again, time is the factor for me not to choose Australia. Maybe next time when I am able to get off days for at least one week.
