Best Time to Book Bangkok Flights
Bangkok's seasons, both wet and dry, are all hot. Tourist season peaks from November to February, when dry weather overlaps with milder temperatures. If you plan to visit Bangkok during these months, whether to view its renowned Buddhist temples or sample its delicious cuisine, you can count on Expedia.ca to help you find the best flight deals for the high season. Expedia.ca can also help you plan a visit during Bangkok's hotter dry months of March through May, which are particularly ideal times to set out from Bangkok to visit Thailand's somewhat cooler northern provinces. For the rainy months of June through October, indoor venues like museums and luxury shops take center stage in this tropical metropolis.
Airport, Terminal & Transfer Info
Suvarnabhumi Airport (IATA: BKK, ICAO: VBTS) services most of Bangkok's air traffic. It is a hub for Thai Airways International, Thai AirAsia, Bangkok Airways and Orient Thai Airlines, and it serves as a connecting point for many international airlines. The Airport Rail Link connects Suvarnabhumi with the Bangkok Mass Transit System, commonly called the Skytrain. Opened in 2006, Suvarnabhumi's main passenger terminal offers dozens of appealing dining options, including Asian cuisine near the Japan Airlines and Thai Airways gates and a greater number of Western-style restaurants near the gates serviced by European and U.S. airlines. Some domestic flights, primarily run by Nok Airways and Orient Thai Airlines, use Bangkok's Don Mueang International Airport (IATA: DMK, ICAO: VTBD) instead of Suvarnabhumi. In addition to car and taxi service, public transportation is available to the airport, which is a fast 15-minute journey from the center city.
