Sleeping packs, overnight masks

Forget screaming kids and annoying fellow passengers. What really makes me feel 10 years older after a 10-hour flight is the dry cabin air, which will drain my skin and leave it in a miserable condition.

For this purpose, Somtum Der in Silom and Som Tam Nua on Siam Square are the two places that first pop up, so with Somtum Der just a short walk from our hotel, there was no doubt regarding where we would be having our first lunch in Bangkok.
