Hi,

It would be best for you to hand carry all your photography equipment and dun chk them in. Most of the X-Ray now are film safe, but I do not know about Bangkok side.

My experience in July when coming back from Japan is that they required me to check-in my tripod, they consider it as too long in length and classified it as dangerous items :what: . When I don't even have problem bringing it in.

After 911, many airports have tuned up the sensitivity of the X-ray scanners. So you may want to watch it if you are carrying high-speed film especially with those machines that says "Film safe up to ISO1600".
I sent my film thru one of those scanners and got back weird dots and grains on my ISO 1600 film. :p

Bangkok.....one of the best place for temple photography......
can try visit these temples...very nice:-
1) the grand palace
2) wat pho......huge sleeping buddha.
3) wat Inn......huge standing buddha/monk.
4) wat suhat or the golden mountain......nice for night photogtaphy.

but be carefull one thing....some buddha image are not allow for photography...do check it out before you snap or else they will take away your film. enjoy your holiday. :thumbsup:
