After our five day visit to Singapore we enjoyed two very nice and relaxing days at sea as Azamara Journey made the 917 nautical mile (1698 km) voyage from Singapore through the Strait of Singapore and South China Sea to the shallow waters of the Gulf of Thailand on our way to Bangkok. Our arrival into Bangkok was in the early hours of Thursday November 28, and the colour of the sky and sea was a surreal mixture of coral and purples as the sunrise became visible through the morning haze.
November 2013 was the start of a period of political instability in Thailand that ultimately led to a Coup d'état in May 2014 - so there was uncertainty how this would affect our time in Bangkok. We were informed that there were protests scheduled in Bangkok during our visit and that access to some tourist destinations could be affected.
