How to go to Bangkok?
Bangkok is the primary international and domestic gateway to Thailand. Travelers either arrive at Suvarnabhumi International Airport located on the eastern outskirts of Bangkok and Don Mueang International Airport in the north.
From the Philippines
Fly from Manila to Bangkok (3 hours and 30 minutes) or Phuket (4 hours) on Philippine Airlines, Cebu Pacific or Thai Airways. You may also go on a connecting flight via Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur or Singapore.
How to find cheap flights to Bangkok?
The easy way is to search on airfare comparison sites that can show you the lowest fares on many airlines in one go.
Start your search on Momondo, Wego or Dohop.
How to book Bangkok promo fares?
Check Bangkok promo alerts several weeks or months ahead of your trip if you are planning your trip early. The cheapest promos are sold up to a year in advance of the travel/flight departure date & are often only available if you book directly with the airline.
Where should I book a hotel/hostel?
Go to Agoda, Booking.com & Tripadvisor to check room rates & discounts. Book as soon as you have finalized your travel dates because hotel/hostel prices rarely go down the closer you are on your trip. Make sure to filter your search based on your budget and sort the results by guest review rating.
