How do you get lost there? He is at the Chomchao sokimex where vemg sreng meets the circle. That's where 100000 minivans drop off passengers. That's basically the end of the airport runway, You can't miss it or the airplanes flying 5 meters over your head every few minutes.

I don't get lost on the way to the airport either; I step in a tuk tuk and say 'airport please'

Ir now order a passapp. God, what a weird story.

I've walked from the river front to the airport. Didn't fall asleep though.

Maybe he missed his tour group?

Having no knowledge of English, coupled with the locals no knowledge of Norwegian, would make it difficult.

Hope he’s ok. Maybe he can still make his flight.

I have yet to come across a Norwegian that does not speak English. Which is true for all of Scandinavia.
