Bangkok, November 2014

In November 2014, Dr John Glees, assisted by the travel agents TransIndus, arranged a spectacularly successful meeting in Bangkok.

Members and partners , making a total group of just under 30, stayed at the luxurious Royal Orchid Sheraton, overlooking the Chao Phraya River. From Sunday, 9th November to Wednesday 12th we were accompanied on our travels from place to place by an excellent local guide, Mr. Chai. As well as the Joint Meeting with Thai Oncologists at King Chulalongkorn Hospital on the Monday, we visited Chatuchak Weekend Market, The Grand Palace and its temples, Damnoen Saduak Floating Market and a number of splendid restaurants, and were hosted for cocktails on the Sunday evening at his apartment in “Glees Towers” by our generous local organiser.

A business meeting (click for Minutes), attended by 17 members was held at the Royal Orchid Sheraton on the Tuesday afternoon.

We have a lot of visual mementos of this wonderful event available on this web site:

Firstly, our very talented Sunny Myint has created two beautiful watercolours showing the view across the Bangkok River from our hotel.
Secondly, courtesy of Jose Crespo, two videos area available! Video 1; Video 2
Thirdly, some photos are also to be found on a separate page; members are urged to submit their own photos for uploading to the site.
