How to get to Bangkok-bangkok-thailand

Nok Air Airlines with regular discount policy is the best choice of many travelers.

A cheap flight from Nok Air or Air Asia will take you to Bangkok immediately. The price for a normal two-way flight is about 400 dollars if you depart from India. And if you hunt for cheap tickets, the cost for a pair of two-way tickets is only about 150 dollars to 200 dollars. The fare will be cheaper if you book 3 to 4 months and avoid the peak tourism summers.

Language  

Thai is the country’s national language but you’ll have no problem speaking English with the country’s people, especially in the main tourist sites, but since speaking the common tongue is always recommended, here are a few phrases in Thai you can learn and that could come in handy

Hi/Good morning: Sawatdi kha (woman): khap (man)

Thank you : Kop khoun kha (woman); khap (man)

Goodbye: La khon

Happy birthday : Souksan wan keut

I love you : Chan rak thur

Currency

In Thailand, the official currency is the baht and one dollar equals around 33 bahts. To get the best exchange rates, get your cash ready but don’t convert that money to bahts in the airport. Instead, wait until you get to Bangkok and ask to gets bahts for your dollars at the local exchange offices. You’ll find many at Sukhumvit Soi 11 for example.

BEST TIME TO VISIT BANGKOK

November to February, when the temperature and precipitation levels are kind and low. But because of the pleasant weather, it is also the peak season. High season begins in November and ends in April, around Songkran Festival (Thai New Year, April 13-15). If you’re visiting within this period, prepare to share the city with millions of other tourists.
