The facilities are magnificent and the standards of service and care great. But my post-Trinity Forum destination is not turning out to be quite the Thailand leisure break I had hoped for.
Instead of spending a few days as planned relaxing in a Phuket beach hotel I am holed up at the five-star Bumrungrad International hospital in downtown Bangkok.
That’s due to my having fallen ill early on during The Trinity Forum. After months of looking forward to the event I had to pull out early on the first day – a bitter disappointment.
I’m happy to reassure Trinity delegates and all our readers that I’m ok after a difficult and uncertain couple of days. I’ve suffered some unfortunate complications from my recent stomach surgery but the outstanding medical team at this world-class hospital are sorting me out and hopefully I will get a mid-week release.
Several of the Trinity delegates, plus the wonderful Susan Whelan from King Power, have been to see me since I have been ill. Everyone has been full of stories about the amazing hospitality put on by King Power and Airports of Thailand (I at least managed to witness the fantastic riverside opening cocktail, pictured below) and the strong content of the Forum itself.
I’ll bring you more on this year’s event – even if much of it by necessity will have to be second hand – from my new Asian bureau at Bumrungrad International.
