Direct Flights to/from Thailand

Thailand is a diverse mix of ancient temples, busy cities and picturesque beaches. The best entry point into Thailand is Bangkok - here you can explore the Grand Palace and Wat Pho, then wander through the city's Chatuchak Weekend Market. If you're keen to visit Thailand's countryside, there is Chiang Mai in the north, offering a glimpse into the traditional Thai culture with its intricate temples and elephant sanctuaries (a very popular tourist spot!). Or if you're seeking relaxation on the beach, pop down to the south of Thailand where Phuket and Koh Samui dazzle you with their turquoise waters, white sandy beaches and delicious seafood.

When planning a trip to Thailand, we highly recommend booking direct flights to Bangkok Suvarnabhumi International Airport, the main gateway to the country, ensuring a convenient and seamless journey to your desired destination within Thailand.
