Cheap Flights to Bangkok
Thailand's vibrant capital city offers something for every type of traveler, whether you're visiting this metropolis to sample the world's best street food, explore ancient temples or shop in labyrinthine markets. In fact, Bangkok was recently rated one of the coolest travel destinations for Canadians. Now that the city has two busy international airports (Suvarnabhuni Aiport and Don Mueang Airport), finding cheap flights to Bangkok has never been easier.
Best Time to Book a Flight to Bangkok
High season in Bangkok falls between November and February, when temperatures are comfortably warm and tropical storms are infrequent. Temperatures, and the chance of storms, rise from March until May, although these months remain popular times to book flights to Bangkok due to the celebration of Thai New Year (known as Songkran) in April. The period from June until October is considered the low season, because frequent, heavy rainstorms can cause power outages and flooding. Once you decide when you'd like to visit Bangkok, Skyscanner's month search tool can help you find the cheapest days to travel.
Airlines That Fly to Bangkok
Although there are no direct flights from Canadian airports to Bangkok, the city's two airports offer convenient connections to other major cities in Asia and North America. Most of the major international airlines fly into Suvarnabhuni Aiport through connecting cities such as Seoul and Beijing. Smaller budget airlines are more likely to arrive at Don Mueang Airport. Skyscanner's flight search tool helps travelers find the cheapest flights to Bangkok on airlines like Cathay Pacific, Thai Airways and Air Canada.
From Suvarnabhuni Aiport, travelers can use the Airport Rail Link to quickly travel to central Bangkok, avoiding the city's famous traffic jams. From Don Mueang Airport, a dedicated airport bus connects travelers to the Mo Chit Skytrain station. Alternately, both airports have reliable taxi service and reputable car rental services.
What to See and Do in Bangkok
Bangkok is a large city with many distinct neighborhoods. In order to make the most of your time in the city, choose a hotel in close proximity to one of Bangkok's Skytrain or Metro stations. The area around Siam Square has many upscale hotels, while Silom and Sukhumvit both offer accommodation at every price point.
Many of the city's most popular attractions are located in the Old City, on the island of Rattanakosin. Here, you'll find the world-famous Grand Palace, which is home to the royal family and filled with a collection of temples, buildings, courtyards and gardens that have slowly been added over the past two hundred years. Nearby, you can see the world's largest reclining Buddha at the Wat Pho temple, which also houses Thailand's most famous massage school.
Further afield, Chatuchak Market expands every weekend to become the largest market in the world. Get lost in the 15,000 stalls selling everything from handmade jewelry to live meerkats. For souvenir shopping and hectic nightlife, Khao San Road can't be beat. When you're finally ready to relax, grab some pad thai or mango sticky rice from a street vendor and have a picnic in picturesque Lumpini Park. No matter what activities you choose, a trip to Bangkok won't break the bank... the Canadian dollar is still strong compared to the Thai baht.
