Airports in Bangkok
Bangkok, the capital of Thailand, is one of the most popular tourist hotspots in the world. In fact, it's second only to London in terms of international visitors. You can book cheap flights to Bangkok with the help of Orbitz.com. Use the powerful Orbitz.com search engine to find exactly the bargain you're looking for. Bangkok is serviced by two major airports: Don Mueang and the recently opened Suvarnabhumi for all international air traffic. Suvarnabhumi Airport is about 20 miles east of the city center. Dozens of international airlines arrive and depart from the modern and state-of-the-art Suvarnabhumi Airport.
Transportation From the Airport
Because Suvarnabhumi is so massive, a shuttle bus service is available to deliver passengers to the car rental center, city bus terminal or long-term parking area. Public taxis charge a 50-bhat airport surcharge. Depending on the traffic conditions, traveling into the city center can take an hour or longer. A public bus service provides transport to several important locales within the city. Bus fare is 35 baht.
Weather in Bangkok
Bangkok has a hot, tropical climate. High temperatures throughout the year hover around 90 degrees. The summer monsoon brings several feet of rain, while the dry winter months may see little or no rain for extended periods.
Things to Do in Bangkok
Two main attractions draw international tourists to Bangkok every year. One is the famous nightlife. Bangkok has an exotic flair that appeals to younger travelers. On the other hand, the hundreds of ancient Buddhist relics and monument offer cultural attractions for the more relaxed, meditative travelers.
