Flights to ThailandFlying to Thailand marks the beginning of your Thailand adventure. Regardless of your departure and connection points, it easy to assume that you'll touch down near the capital city of Bangkok. As you hit connections and approach your destination, carefully notice how the world is changing around you. No offense to the wonderful flight attendants that served me on a recent trip from Dallas, TX, to Baton Rouge, LA, but flying the friendly skies in Thailand is more reminiscent of the birth of commercial aviation -- when passengers felt that they were truly important to the airline staff. Yes, even while you're in the air, the world is changing around you, and it is only a glimpse of what you'll receive once you touch down in Southeast Asia.
Suvarnabhumi Airport, Thailand
Suvarnabhumi Airport is located approximately half an hour from downtown Bangkok. If your adventure is to begin in the capital city, transportation is available through shuttle services and taxis for travel to your Thailand hotel or next destination. As one of the newest international airports in the world, the amenities at Suvarnabhumi Airport are state of the art, and the international visitor will find that it is very user friendly. If you are traveling on to other regional airports in Thailand, this will be your first stop to welcome you to the country before you hop the puddle jumper to an island paradise like Phuket.
Finding Flights to Thailand
To find the best deal on a cheap flight to Thailand, you'll want to dedicate some quality time to Internet research and comparison shopping. There are international travel deals everywhere you look, and you can even bid on a flight price. However, as "deals" come and go, a few consistent and helpful hints remain constant in your search to find the best price for your Thailand destination!
If you can plan your vacation around a fare sale, then you'll have no problem finding the best possible price on a flight to Bangkok, Thailand. From Bangkok, you can travel anywhere in Thailand inexpensively, whether by plane, train or bus. If you research the most popular times to visit Thailand and find that you can travel just before or just after that time period, your Thailand vacation budget will begin to look larger than you may have originally anticipated.
Another thing to consider when looking for the best price on a flight to Thailand is your departure city. Departing from an international airport will potentially save you hundreds on your round trip ticket price. Sometimes this choice may not be an option, but for a flight of this nature, beginning your trip from an international hub is worth driving a couple hours or taking a quick train ride into the closest city.
Package Deals to Thailand
If you are planning to stay several days at a Thailand hotel, then you should consider purchasing a travel package. Packages are available to cover flight and hotel costs as well as options that will add a rental car or several travel tours to the total price. This is one way to save money on both your air travel and hotel stay in Thailand, and if you're so inclined, you can save a bundle on your activities as well.
These are just a few ideas to consider, and if you're willing to implement them, they will certainly help you to travel Thailand with more money in your pocket!
