Flying to Bangkok in December is usually considered the best time to fly. However, you will find other deals are always available year round. If you are looking for warm weather when you arrive off of your flight to Bangkok then April is statistically the hottest. September is historically the period with most rainfall.

When is the best time to book a flight to Bangkok?

To ensure you get the cheapest price possible for a flight to Bangkok, you should look to book at least 60 days in advance of your intended travel date. The price of your flight may increase if you delay and leave booking until a week or so before departure.

From the moment of stepping off a flight to Bangkok in Suvarnabhumi Airport, a visitor to Thailand’s capital can see what’s on offer. Since the airport opened in 2006, it has become something of a symbol for modern Bangkok and is a microcosm of the city itself. Excellent restaurants and high-end designer shops sit in the architecturally magnificent hall, alongside huge wooden statues of Spirit Guards. Old Eastern Buddhist traditions exist happily among new Western commercialism in a bustling, stimulating environment.

It would be possible to spend years in the city and still not see all the huge metropolis has to offer, but most tourists book flights to Bangkok hoping to catch some of the favourites. A visit to Wat Pho and the Grand Palace gives an idea of the city’s history. The shopping is unrivalled, with high-end designer malls and street markets both sprawling throughout the city. Thai boxing (Muay Thai) is a popular activity for locals and tourists alike; both watching a fight and training. The nightlife, of course, is notorious, but it’s not just the red light district of Patpong. The Khao San Road, ever-popular with backpackers, is filled with bars, clubs and even Irish pubs, while the central area has some of the world’s super-clubs and most fancy bars. From sunrise to sunset, there is plenty to see in this friendly, accessible city.

Off Season:

The off-season prices are appealing, especially if you like it hot and humid and rainy. The least-crowded months tend to be May, June, and September.

Getting around Bangkok

There are many different ways to get through the busy, crowded streets of Bangkok. Hop aboard the Skytrain, which runs on a raised monorail, for great views of the financial and shopping districts. The train is connected with the underground, which is easy to use and covers the parts of Bangkok not connected to the Skytrain. 

Buses crisscross the city, but the system can be confusing to navigate. You’re better off taking a taxi or tuk-tuk, both of which are inexpensive. 

Don’t rent a car for your stay. You’ll learn quickly that Bangkok drivers are very aggressive and traffic is a nightmare. If you really want your own car, hire a car and driver for the day instead. 

Heading out on foot is doable, but you’ll move slowly. Foot traffic crawls along, which is great if you want to experience the colour of the city, but slow-going if you’re trying to get somewhere. 

The water taxis lining the Chao Praya River are another popular tourist option. You’ll also find that Bangkok is the centre of Thai travel, so you can find a bus, train or flight to almost anywhere else you’re looking to go.
