Bangkok, Thailand has two main airports, each of which receive flights to Bangkok. The Bangkok International Airport (DMK) reopened for normal operations since March 2012 after temporarily closing when Bangkok International Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK) officially opened. BKK is the main airport and DMK exists to ease the busy Bangkok airspace. Taxis are available from DMK while BBK offers shuttle services, taxis, car rentals, airport limousines, public buses, or the airport rail link to deliver passengers from Bangkok flights to their destinations. The airport express will transport you to the city in about 15 minutes. BKK is conveniently located approximately 19 miles from Downtown Bangkok and even operates a 600 room hotel right at the airport.

Bangkok Weather

Located just north of the equator, Bangkok is one of the world’s warmest cities—sunny throughout the year with temperatures above 85 degrees. November to February is the cooler season and the best time to schedule flights to Bangkok. The hottest season is from March to April, where tourists seek shelter in air-conditioned malls and hotels. The rain fall from May to October can sometimes fall quite heavily, especially in September. Dress lightly for your trip to Bangkok and be sure to drink a lot of fluids while you’re there.

Getting Around Bangkok

Bangkok is popular with tourists and has a variety of travel options available to explore its colorful streets and secrets. The BTS Skytrain covers most of Downtown and is quite convenient, zipping all around the city. Coming from their flights to Bangkok, tourists use the Skytrain more than the metro, but there are some useful stops—the newest addition being the Airport Rail Link. A ride on the river boats is a cool way to get from point-to-point, and motorcycle taxis (tuk tuks) are available as a comfortable way to travel fast around town, along with BMTA buses.

angkok Attractions

Vibrant nightlife, beautiful people, and a rich cultural history make flights to Bangkok one of the more popular vacation excursions.

  • Loi Krathong: the festival of light dazzles with its colorful festivities and shows.
  • Nana Entertainment Plaza: sample some of Thailand’s red light nightclubs.
  • Chao Phraya Princess: cruise on the Chao Phraya River with cultural performances and a sparkling view of the city.
  • Khao San Road: sample famous Thai street food including fried chicken and some bizarre surprises.
  • Sukhumvit Road: shopping for trinkets or almost anything in this huge street market can become a whole day’s worth of activity.
  • Bangkok When to Go

    Bangkok’s seasons can be determined by the level of heat: very hot, really wet, warm and sticky, or reasonably hot. The high season from November through March claims the latter description. Many from the northern hemisphere swap winter for the Southeast Asian shores (with the requisite stopover in Bangkok). In general, Bangkok’s high season stretches till May.

    November evening skies sparkle with the brilliant displays of the Loi Krathong Festival of Light. Based on 13th-century Brahmin origins, locals give thanks to the Goddess of Water and seek forgiveness for naughty deeds. You’ll find Thais and foreigners alike out by the Chao Phraya riverside setting candlelit floats into the water with a prayer. The festival is celebrated at various points along the river so that everyone has the chance to set his or her own krathong into the water. 

    Mid-April signals the Thai New Year, or Songkran, a nonstop, three-day festival where revelers take to the streets with water guns and buckets—a modern-day interpretation of when a Buddhist monk sprinkled water on people as a token of good luck. This also comes at the start of the shoulder season—and the start of monsoons, reinforcing the fact that the high point of Songkran is getting wet (literally, like you have just spent the day at a water park).

    The really rainy months of June through October indicate low season in Bangkok. Let’s just say it seems like the Songkran on steroids during the monsoons. There have been recorded episodes of near-constant rains for two months straight. Lots of rain and humidity can make for a miserable combination for some people, but the Thais just let it roll off their backs. August and September generally get the wettest, sometimes with floods reaching knee-deep depths in busy town streets. Pack an umbrella and a light trash-bag-like poncho; the muggy temps will prove a heavy raincoat useless.
