Bangkok is well connected by air to the rest of the world and there are two airports in the city. The Suvarnabhumi Airport is located 25 kilometres east of Bangkok and the Don Mueang Airport located 24 kilometres to the north. Most international and domestic airlines operate at the Suvarnabhumi Airport, which is linked to the city by buses, taxis, and Airport Rail Link, a high-speed train service into downtown Bangkok.



Buses to and from other parts of Thailand including Pattaya, Krabi, Phuket and Ko Samui and also to neighbouring countries operate in Bangkok. There are three major bus terminals in Bangkok; the Northern Bus Terminal, also known as Mo Chit, the Eastern Bus Terminal, also known as Ekkamai and the Southern Bus Terminal, also known as Sai Tai. Book your bus tickets directly at one of the three public bus terminals and avoid travel agents and private buses, which are not the most reliable.



Bangkok is well connected by rail to the rest of Thailand and to neighbouring countries like Malaysia, Cambodia and Laos. The main railway station of Bangkok is the Hua Lamphong Railway Station where trains from neighbouring countries and other parts of Thailand operate. The Thornburi Train Station (formerly known as Bangkok Noi Station) serves for local or nearby travel.



Here are a few things you must ensure you have before you travel to Thailand:
  • Valid passport with a minimum six months validity.
  • A Thailand visa valid upto your stay in Thailand. You can either apply for a visa before hand, or a visa on arrival.
  • Bank cards, cash, forex, or travel cards
  • Copies of your passport, visa, credit and debit cards
  • Emergency contacts
  • Laptop and mobile phone along with chargers
  • Basic medication
  • Light cottons, sunscreen and mosquito repellent
  • Umbrella/raincoat

DOs & DON’Ts

  • Do smile and be polite. Thais are very hospitable people.
  • Do respect Thai culture especially when visiting a temple. Make sure your arms, shoulders and legs are covered.
  • Do keep your wits about you when walking in busy tourist areas.
  • Don’t sunbathe nude on the beaches.
  • Don’t leave your arms and legs bare when visiting Thai temples. Wear t-shirts or tops with sleeves and full trousers in a place of worship.
  • Don’t disrespect the Royal family in any way. Such behaviour is a criminal offence in Thailand
  • Don’t disrespect Buddha images in temples or otherwise.
  • Don’t raise your voices or get rude with locals, no matter what the provocation.
  • No PDA in public. Locals often take offence at this.
  • Don’t buy drugs. Thailand has very unforgiving laws for those selling, buying and using drugs of any kind.
  • Don’t attract attention by wearing flashy jewellery or watches.
  • Don’t get way led by touts promising ‘massages’, ‘girls’ or any other services.
  • Don’t invite strangers to your hotel no matter how friendly they seem.
  • Do call the Tourist Police for any assistance needed.
  • Don’t trust Thai strangers too easily. Tourists are scammed pretty regularly by locals looking to make a quick buck.
  • Prefer a metered taxi over a tuk-tuk. You’ll have fewer chances of being scammed.
  • Visit the Chatuchak Weekend Market for some cheap thrills and amazing street shopping experience.
  • Visit a sky bar by night for a view of glittering Bangkok.
  • Use the BTS and MRT for easy intra-city travelling.
  • Do bargain and fix a rate with your taxi or tuk tuk driver before using their services to avoid any animosity later.
  • Don’t buy any wildlife parts or products. It’s illegal to do so in Thailand.
  • Carry a lot of water to keep yourself hydrated in the Bangkok heat and humidity.
