Just a word of caution for travellers out of Ubon.
It would seem that the scales at the Thai airways check in counter may be a little off as an email I just received from my Mum in Australia would testify to.
She emailed me saying “Well my suitcase weighed 27.5kg at Ubon, 21.5kg at Bangkok and 19.5kg at Melbourne. So I guess if I was going around the world I wouldnt have any lugguage by the end of it!!”
Just a heads up warning if they ever try and hit you for excess baggage, it might be worth trying a different set of scales or even weighing it yourself before heading to the airport if you are worried that it might be overweight.
