A frenetic city of dizzying choice and eye-opening entertainment options, Bangkok is the perfect balance of hot, sour, salty and sweet - just like Thai cuisine. It's a metropolis where steamy tuk-tuk rides and delicious street food dishes contrast with stylish rooftop bars and modern shopping malls. Student Flights has cheap flights to Bangkok and if you're under 26, a full-time student or a teacher, our exclusive Black Market Flights mean even cheaper airfares to Bangkok - just for being you!
Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok is the main international airport and hub for four Thailand-based airlines including the national carrier, Thai Airways. Asia's third busiest airport is located 25 kilometres from the downtown area, which you can get to by bus, shuttle, taxi and train. The most convenient way to travel is via the Suvarnabhumi Airport Rail Link, a non-stop 15-minute ride to the City Terminal in downtown Bangkok. For more information about the airlines that fly to Suvarnabhumi Airport, see our airline guide.
The Thai capital is a non-stop adventure where you can pair big city diversions and entertainment with moments of tranquillity and stillness. Bangkok's temples are big on bling with gold spires that glint in the sun, but they've got nothing on the scores of stores in the 8-storey MBK Center packed with shiny technology, jewellery and more. For markets with the lot, don't miss the frenzy of food, furnishings and frocks at Chatuchak Weekend Market.
A great way to see Bangkok is from the water whether that's with a trip to the famous floating markets of Damnoen Saduak or seeing the striking silhouette of Wat Arun at sunset on a river cruise. If you're short on time, we can hook you up with heaps of great Bangkok tours or use Bangkok as a base for Thailand tours to the north and south.
