A longtime cultural powerhouse and hotbed of tourist activity, London’s reign as the top dog of European tourism shows no sign of letting up in the 21st century. That’s because few cities boast the same range of attractions as England’s historic capital, from the iconic London Bridge and Westminster Abbey to familiar faces at Madame Tussauds. The UK is 7 hours behind Thailand, so you can enjoy breakfast in Bangkok and afternoon tea in London, or slumber through the small hours after your flight from Bangkok to London Heathrow and wake up to the bells of St. Paul's Cathedral calling your name.
London is one of the must-visit stops on most travellers’ wish lists, so popular demand keeps prices fairly level all year round. If you’re on a tight budget, consider booking a one-stop flight with a touchdown en route, or break your journey with an overnight stay in a European capital. Travelling midweek or at less popular hours is another good way to fly for less. Book well in advance for the best rates and availability if your travel dates are fixed, or try your luck with last-minute bargains if you’re free to fly at short notice. No matter what you choose, a little research goes a long way in making the most of your stay.
Cool Britannia may seem a world away from Thailand’s sizzling exoticism, yet it’s never been easier to make the 6,000-mile journey from Bangkok to London. You’ll find the colourful tail fins of Thai Airways and British Airways lined up on the tarmac of Suvarnabhumi Airport waiting to whisk you effortlessly to Heathrow in under 12 hours. Both national carriers operate a frequent non-stop service, with direct Bangkok to London flights from Taiwan’s EVA Air providing a competitive alternative.
London’s busy Heathrow Airport is designed to handle a huge range of international arrivals around the clock, so you won’t have to look far for helpful transport information. You’ll find plenty of cabs right outside the terminal to drive you the 15 miles into central London or directly to your destination. The Heathrow Express is the fast train link between the airport and Paddington Station in west London, taking around 15 minutes and offering frequent departures. Heathrow Connect also provides a service to this destination; this option takes a little longer but stops at a number of locations en route.
London is an ideal year-round destination, with something always happening to keep you on your toes. Spring is the perfect time to stroll through the Royal Parks or catch the first shoots at Kew Botanical Gardens. Summer brings open-top boat trips on the Thames and the popular Summer Exhibition at the Royal Academy. Catch a star-studded West End show opening in autumn, or enjoy a sparkling start to the festive season at the switching on of the world-famous Regent Street Christmas lights.
