Air France-KLM VA presents Destination Saturdays Vol. 15: Bangkok | @ VABB - 141700ZAPR18
Bangkok, one of the largest and most renowned cities in Thailand is on our horizon as we move on from Mumbai for the 15th installment of Destination Saturdays. Concluding our short visit to India, we will depart from Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport and make our way east towards Bangkok, aka “Venice of the East” and“Sin City of Asia,” known worldwide for its ornate shrines, floating markets, vibrant street life, hot climate and friendly people. This destination is guaranteed to be one of the best yet!
Air France – KLM Virtual cordially invites you to experience Destination Saturdays, our signature event series dedicated to traversing the most iconic destinations, beautiful airports, and challenging approaches across the globe. Some describe it as career mode for the world traveller at heart, while others say we’ve set out to finish what Amelia Earhart started. However, you look at it, Destination Saturdays is sure to deliver fun times flying with friends (old and new). Be part of the journey every other week as we pick up where we last left off!
