Cheap flights to Bangkok International (BKK)

See all departure points

Bangkok is the capital of Thailand and one of Asia's most cosmopolitan cities with magnificent temples, palaces, authentic canals, busy markets and a vibrant nightlife. If you’re looking for a warm getaway Bangkok is your destination and it is sunny at any time of the year.

Bangkok is also known as "The Venice of the East" because of the Chao Phraya River (also known as the River of Kings) and its many other waterways. The Chao Phraya River splits the city in half and is a major transportation artery for a vast network of river buses and water taxis (also known as longtails).

A unique part of this capital, and a must see, are the temples. Absolutely stunning architecture with awe-inspiring decorations beautiful to the finest detail. The temple complexes still play an important role in the Buddhist traditions. And you will find many monks still live in the temple complexes today.

Love shopping or going to the movies? Then Bangkok is the place to be. Whatever it is you’re looking for you will find it here. Whether in an air-conditioned shopping mall or on the lively street markets. And for a fun night out the cinemas are a great choice. They show the latest Hollywood releases and the tickets are a bargain.

Want to escape the busy city for a day? Consider a bicycle ride. There are plenty of options to explore Bangkok hideaways or the countryside without having to go far. Cycle through beautiful green fields, colourful orchid farms or peaceful lotus fields which exist close to the heart of the city.

A favourite of many is the Thai cuisine. Bangkok offers more than 50,000 places to eat. Thai restaurants and street food, which is absolutely exquisite, but there is also world-class international cuisine.

Airport Overview

Suvarnabhumi International Airport (pronounced su-wan-na-poom), or Bangkok International, is located in Racha Thewa, Thailand, approximately 25km (16 miles) east of downtown Bangkok. It is the country’s busiest airport, and the third busiest in Asia, with almost 43 million passengers in 2010.

Suvarnabhumi Airport, meaning “Golden Land” in Sanskrit, features the tallest control tower in the world and the world’s largest single-building passenger terminal. Travellers can expect everything that most international airports offer - an extensive array of shopping and dining, facilities and services. Constructed almost entirely of glass, the interior of the terminal is well lit and airy. Moreover, numerous traditional artworks and fabrics draped from the walls and ceilings are a wonderful introduction to Thai culture.

Suvarnabhumi International Airport is clean, modern and well maintained and, like all Thai citizens, staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful. Expect nothing less than a world-class experience when visiting Thailand’s primary aerial gateway.
