Planes on the menu.

Thailand is Cambodia's neighbor to the West, and this forum is dedicated to Thai news, stories, reviews, blogs, videos, Thai people and anything else related to the country. A lot of expats have both lived and worked in Cambodia and Thailand, and this area is a place to discuss all aspects of life in Thailand and what's going on there. Most topics are about Bangkok and Pattaya because of their larger populations of expatriates and tourists in those cities, but this is for all things Thai.

Planes on the menu.

It's certainly not everyone's idea of a relaxing way to pass an hour or two while eating a meal, but personally I like the idea of watching an assortment of low-flying aircraft passing regularly at close quarters while I'm sat having lunch. Ko Lanta Restaurant sits a few hundred metres from Suvarnabhumi Airport.

The idea that seeing the world is going from place to place to look at obvious things is an illusion natural to dull minds.

Whilst eating meatballs at IKEA in Tempe, Sydney you can enjoy a good view of planes landing at Sydney Airport.

I like watching A380s take off because they really lumber into the air, like an elephant taking flight.
No matter how much it rains, the dirt never washes away.

Flower power at mascot is another goodie depending on which way the wind is blowing.
I was watching the planes come in at Tempe tyres today coincidentally.

On the beach in Nice, enjoying carpaccio and a nice red, watching arrivals and departures... almost therapeutic.

You need to keep a firm grip on your wine at St Martin if you watch the planes landing.
