London to Bangkok flights will take you to a city jam packed with a diversity, a colour and a spectacle that's rarely equalled elsewhere. Your London to Bangkok trip will feature both the vibrancy of the busy streets and also the serenity and tradition of its hidden network of canals. Bangkok's frenetic bar scene is legendary, and hosts some of Bangkok’s amazing rooftop bars where stylish urbanites come to escape the humid streets. But it's food that really shapes Bangkok's modern identity, in particular its street food, which revolves around fast-cooking fast-talking stalls that are both gleefully cheap and wildly adventurous.
Bangkok is Southeast Asia's major hub for budget travellers, so cheap air deals are in ample supply. National airlines, British Airways and Thai Airways offer direct London to Bangkok flights but you can save a packet if you add a stopover en route. There's a quite dizzying array of routes to choose from, but keep a watchful eye on those transfer times. You'll definitely get your money’s worth on London Bangkok flights in June, at the tail end of the hot season. Aim to book at least two weeks ahead of departure for the biggest savings.
Heathrow (LHR) is the best bet for both direct and indirect flights to Bangkok, and getting there is a breeze. The Heathrow Express train service will whisk you there from Paddington station with a minimum amount of fuss. Book in advance and you can save up to 50%. Cheaper still is a one-way fare from central London via the London Underground on the Piccadilly line, costing around GBP 6.
Direct London Bangkok flights take around 12 hours, and if you book with national carriers, such as Thai Airways, British Airways or Gulf Airlines, you can rest assured that you’ll be travelling in style.
Long-haul flights into Bangkok generally land at Suvarnabhumi International Airport (BKK). The Airport Rail Link will get you into the city in about 30 minutes. It connects to the MRT underground station at Makkasan City and the BTS Skytrain at Phayathai Station. Public buses are also available and travel into the city at regular times throughout the day. If you prefer to take a taxi downtown, head straight for the official taxi desks to avoid Bangkok's legendary taxi touts.
Concrete and chrome continues to cover ever more parts of Bangkok, but there are still echoes of old Siam. Swoon over the shimmering gold-encrusted stupas of Wat Phra Kaeo and the regal extravagance of the Grand Palace. Jim Thompson's famous period teak house is the epitome of calm amidst the urban chaos. For something more edgy, dive into the bedlam of a Muay Thai kickboxing bout. Don’t forget to spend an afternoon (or two!) at one of the city climate-controlled shopping centres have a bunch of cool distractions for when the humidity gets too much, such as an ice skating ring, the Kidzania amusement park and several aquariums.
