Airfare to Bangkok, Thailand
Major Airports in Bangkok
Bangkok is served by two airports:
- Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK), the main airport and the busiest in South East Asia
- Don Muang Airport (DMK), handles all Air Asia flights
For cheaper tickets to Bangkok, consider the following :
- Fly mid-week in order to take advantage of the low volume traffic days
- You’d want to visit Bangkok from late November to mid-January when it’s slightly “cooler”. You may save on airfare if you fly from late May to late October.
- For example when searching a flight from London to Bangkok the price was $571 at two weeks notice and stayed the same for two months. Click here to search this route
- Check out carriers besides the national airline and don’t be afraid to opt for low cost carriers
Bangkok Travel Tips
Bangkok is Thailand’s travel hub. It is usually home to the cheapest flights in southeast Asia, with millions of backpackers and luxury-goers alike visiting the city each year.
Thai Airways is the national carrier of Thailand and has a bub at Bangkok’s main airport. Major airlines such as Turkish Airlines , Lufthansa and British Airways also serve the city. PLus there are a host of low cost carriers flying here, including Air Asia, IndiGo and Jetstar.
Outside of the backpacker haven (and ghetto) Khao San Road, travelers make time to see the night markets, eat banana pancakes and watch in amazement at the feats of the girls in the Red Light District. Getting ripped off by a tuk-tuk driver and checking out the Grand Palace (no, it’s not closed today, no matter what the driver tells you) are two other Bangkok must-dos.
