Beijing and Bangkok are two of the most important transportation hubs in Asia. Each city offers a large, modern airport and convenient transportation to surrounding areas. With Orbitz.com, you can search fare sales and book low-cost flights from Beijing to Bangkok during any month of the year.
Beijing Capital International Airport serves the city and its surrounding areas in China. The airport is located about 20 miles outside of the city's center near the Shunyi district. Beijing has heavy traffic, and the easiest way to get to the airport is by public transportation. The Airport Express train connects to Beijing's subway system and brings you directly to Terminal 3 for about $4; from there, you can take the airport's free shuttle service to get to the other terminals. The Airport Shuttle system has six lines that run to various areas around the city. A one-way ticket costs less than $3. If you plan to take a taxi, expect to pay about $20 or more, depending on the length of the trip. Parking is also available at the airport for $8 per 24-hour period. At the airport, you will find both fast-food and dine-in options. Food at the airport is priced significantly higher than comparable options in the city.
Bangkok is the capital of Thailand and the country's biggest city. Here, ancient temples sit next to ultramodern shopping malls, creating a unique duality that draws travelers from around the world. Suvarnabhumi International Airport serves the city and handles the bulk of Thailand's international visitors.
Suvarnabhumi Airport is located about 25 miles outside of town. If you can carry your luggage easily, the fastest and most comfortable option for traveling from the airport is the airport train. The Express Line brings you to the downtown area in about 15 minutes for a fare of $3. The City Line, which takes approximately 25 minutes, costs about $1.50 and makes more frequent stops. Both trains stop at the Phaya Thai station, where you can connect to Bangkok's Skytrain system. If you cannot manage your luggage on your own, the cheapest option is a shuttle bus. Many buses operate from outside of the airport terminal and offer direct service to popular spots in the city. The fare is under $10 per person. If you prefer to take a taxi, you can go to the taxi stand with your destination address; an agent will give you a slip of paper with the set fare. Expect to pay tolls of up to $2 in addition to the fare. Taxis usually cost no more than $15, and the ride takes up to one hour.
Bangkok is hot and humid year round, and it is not uncommon for temperatures to reach above 90 degrees Fahrenheit. The most pleasant time to visit is between November and January. Between March and May, high temperatures can make traveling and sightseeing in the city dangerous. If you plan to travel during this time, move slowly, take taxis when possible and drink plenty of water to avoid heat stroke.
Whether you are visiting Bangkok for business or pleasure, you will find no shortage of things to do. From night markets to sprawling temple complexes, the city has an activity for every budget. With Orbitz.com, you can book fights from Beijing to Bangkok any time of the year.
