What’s the cheapest month to fly to Bangkok?
Bangkok’s dry season runs from November to April. The good weather attracts the crowds, particularly those escaping winter in the Northern Hemisphere, so it’s often better for those on a budget to visit during rainy season. Use our low fare finder to find the cheapest prices throughout the year.
Is Bangkok cheap to visit?
It's easy to keep things cheap and cheerful in Bangkok – Thailand is a favourite with backpackers for a reason. There are plenty of accommodation options, from low-cost hostels to high-end hotels. Experience the city like a local and you’ll find street food stalls and smaller restaurants offering authentic Thai meals for a fraction of the price of the tourist hotspots. For an affordable tipple with your meal, stick to beer. Wine and cocktails come at a premium in Bangkok, so save your baht for the cultural attractions, as most have an entry fee.
Is it easy to get around Bangkok?
You can take the Airport Rail Link train from the airport to Phaya Thai, a station closer to the city centre, before changing to the subway or the skytrain. The journey will take around 45 minutes. During the day, there’s also the option of an airport shuttle, which takes about an hour. Taxis are also available. You can hire a car with British Airways if you want to see more of Thailand. You’ll receive great benefits, with all mandatory charges included and 24-hour customer support, plus you’ll collect Avios points on every rental.
Why visit Bangkok?
Bangkok is the perfect place to start your Thai adventure, whether it’s the beginning a wider tour of the country or you’re setting up camp in this iconic Asian city. The combination of tradition and modernity makes Thailand’s capital the ideal setting for an action-packed getaway, filled with delicious food, boat rides along the Chao Phraya River and backpacker-filled markets. There’s culture around every corner too, from the Museum Siam to the Erawan Shrine. Then, once you’ve had your fill of the hustle and bustle, chill out on islands like Phuket and Koh Samui, which show off Thailand’s laid-back side.
