Information on the Okinawa Bangkok routing:
It was very good timing for me because I wanted to go to Okinawa directly from Bangkok this year. This being my first flight with Peach I was impressed by both the comfort and service level provided by the carrier.
This is slightly off topic but I happened to see the same Thai married couple on both legs pf round trip flight. During the flight we became friends and enjoyed passing the time reflecting on our shared memories of the time spent in Okinawa. Both of my new friends held Dive Master qualifications. They told me of their experiences diving off of Kerama which is one of the islands off of Okinawa and a very popular destination among divers. They also apparently had visited Phuket, Papua New Guinea and Palau and so on.
“We want to try every dive spot in the world !” They said with a smile.
I hope they achieve it. Thank you for your reading : )
