About

Ornate temples everywhere. Bright city lights at nighttime. Street food vendors on almost every corner. That’s what everyday life looks like in noisy and colorful Bangkok! A land of delightful contractions, this Southeast Asia destination is at once chaotic and spiritual, stimulating, and peaceful. Like nowhere else in the world, Bangkok invites travelers to appreciate the beauty of the city chaos in one minute and flock to stress-busting pockets of calm in the other. And that’s exactly what makes worldwide visitors fall head over heels for the city!

Best time to visit

In November, the city starts to dry out from the warm monsoon season, while still boasting pleasant temperatures that range from 23°C to 34°C. And while January is the cheapest month to fly to Bangkok, visitors might wanna book their trip to April, which is when the Thai New Year takes place.

Getting there

Located 30 kilometers east of the city center, the Suvarnabhumi International Airport (BKK) is the main gateway for travelers who are flying from Europe and America. To get to Bangkok’s center, take the Airport Rail Link City Line, which leaves every 15 minutes, and costs 45 Baht (1.50 USD) per person.

Located about 14km from Bangkok city center, the Don Muang Airport (DMK) handles a wide range of domestic flights. From there, you can either take an airport taxi, which costs around 400 baht (14 USD), or take the A1 bus, which costs 30 Baht (1 USD) and gets you to Mo Chit Bus Station in around 20 minutes.
