Flying from

Bangkok overview

Over 30 million tourists visited Bangkok in 2016, making it one of the top 10 most visited destinations in the world. Did fabulous temples like Wat Arun, sumptuous cuisine lead by Thai curries, and vibrant nightlife centred on Khao San Road helped the city achieve the mark? Definitely! Yet it is Bangkok's undeterred ambition to reinvent itself as per the changing generations of tourists that helped retain its charm over time. Bangkok's success story began when places like Sukhumvit, Siam Square and Silom got noticed as backpackers' havens. Over the last decade, the city was given a makeover by a new class of five-star resorts, wellness spas, and hotels emerging around the Bangkok Riverside area. Despite the growing popularity of Bangkok as a travel destination, prices of flights to the Thai city from London remain low with Travel Trolley.

Bangkok Accommodation Options

A city of contrasts, Bangkok has a plethora of accommodation options for every budget. The small and friendly guesthouses, bungalows and hostels make for budget accommodation and can cost you anywhere between £3.50 and £35 for a double-bed and a toilet. A stay at a mid-range tourist hotels in Bangkok can cost you anywhere between £14 and £50. These hotels, like the top-end hotels, are well-furnished with air conditioners, TVs and mini-bars but lack the finesse of a top-end hotel. The number of luxury hotels in Bangkok is increasing every year. With the luxurious offerings of private beaches, boutique-style rooms and exceptional service, they can set you back by around £150.

Best Time to Visit Bangkok

Bangkok is hot and humid all throughout the year, but the period between November and January is comparatively cooler, with low humidity and much pleasant weather conditions. This makes it a popular time to book tickets to Bangkok.

Heat and humidity reach their highest in April and May, but even then the city welcomes a steady stream of visitors from all parts of the globe. You can join the celebrations at the Songkran Water Festival to beat the summer heat. From May to November, frequent downpours are normal.
