Flights to Thailand
Thailand is an incredible country, full of beautiful islands, stunning temples, delicious cuisine and a culture so unique, it attracts millions of visitors each year. What's sets the culture apart, however, is the Thai hospitality. A warm welcome and a friendly attitude make Thailand a popular spot for holiday makers.
Most visitors booking flights to Thailand will arrive via the capital, Bangkok, with its bustling streets, wild nightlife, calming temples and famous shopping. Budget travellers often opt for the cheap hostels along Khao San Road a busy area of town, famous for its nightlife and atmosphere. Those travelling with a bit more cash to splash may choose one of the luxury five-star hotels dotted around the city, such as the stunning Mandarin Oriental located along the banks of the Chao Phraya River. Mid-range hotels, such as the Lebua at State Tower with its stunning views across Bangkok from the rooftop bar and restaurant are equally as impressive for those who don’t want to scrimp on style but need to scrimp on budget. One thing to note about Bangkok and Thailand in general is that hotel rates are often much lower than you would find elsewhere in the world, allowing you to get more bread for your Baht.
If you are planning to travel around Thailand, the northern jungles of Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai are a popular stopping spot to explore the tropical countryside. Offering elephant treks through the wilderness, Thai cookery courses and much more, northern Thailand offers an alternative insight into the culture and environment.
South of Bangkok
Heading south and the popular coastal towns of Hua Hin and Pattaya are favourite beach resorts for locals due to their proximity to Bangkok. Pattaya is often known for its parties and nightlife, often attracting a younger audience whilst Hua Hin, on the other hand offers a quieter atmosphere, catering more towards couples and families.
Many people will head further south still, to the beautiful Thai islands, namely Phuket, Koh Samui and Ko Pha Ngan, often flying direct from Bangkok. Each offering its own unique taste of Thailand, the southern islands boast beautiful beaches with clear blue seas, incredible scenery and a relaxing stay. Phuket’s town of Patong has become an area many people avoid and instead head to the quieter towns on the island for a secluded beach stay. Koh Samui, another favourite for holiday makers offers wonderful scuba diving and a trip to the Angthong National Marine Park is also a must.
