My company had organised a sales conference and meet in Pattaya. I went there for a day to meet the group. The travel was so easy, and the interaction something which probably would not have been office in regular meetings.
I took an Indigo 6:30 am flight on Fri morning, reached Bangkok at 12:30 pm, after a 4.5 hour flight. Driving to Pattaya takes about an hour and a half. The 6-8 lane highway makes the 120-kms distance a breeze. I returned the next day by the return Indigo flight which leaves Bangkok at 1:30 pm, and arrives in Mumbai at 4:50 (we landed 45 minutes ahead of schedule).
A change of setting can do wonders for the interactions, conversations and bonding. All in all, a great experience!
