Things to DO in Bangkok this Year

Colorful, chaotic, beautiful Bangkok is the first spot for many travelers eager to explore Southeast Asia. But Thailand’s capital is also a must-see city in its own right for a variety of reasons, from cheap and delicious street food to awe-inspiring cultural attractions. Whether you’re just passing through or settling in for a few days of sightseeing, here’s everything you need to know before and during your Trip To Bangkok. You’ll likely be getting into Bangkok via one of two main airports, Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK) or Don Muang Airport (DMK). If you’re flying within Southeast Asia and traveling via a low-cost carrier such as Air Asia or Nok Air, you’ll likely be arriving via DMK and your best bet for getting to the city is in a taxi, especially if you have luggage. The trip should take 30 minutes to an hour depending on traffic and the fare should be roughly 350 THB. From BKK, your best option for travel to and from the airport is via the Airport Rail Link Service, which operates between 6 am and midnight. The airport rail link connects to MRT underground at Makkasan City Interchange Station (MRT Phetchaburi Station) and BTS Skytrain at Phayathai Station. The trip takes around 30 minutes and you can buy a token from vending machines at the station or from the ticket office. A ride will cost around 45 THB. Getting around Bangkok There are three main options for getting around in Bangkok, including bus, BTS Skytrain, and MRT (subway). The cost depends on the distance traveled, but prices start at around 7 THB for the bus, 15 THB for the Skytrain, and 16 THB for the MRT. Tickets for the Skytrain and MRT can be purchased from machines inside each station, and for the bus, you pay onboard. All types of transit in the city operate between 6 am and midnight.
