Thailand is best to visit is during the dry season of November through April, when there’s a little less humidity, but it’s still warm enough to enjoy the beaches. Northern Thailand may get a little chilly, so pack some layers!
The main airports are Suvarnabhumi International Airport (BKK) and Don Mueang International Airport (DMK) in Bangkok and Phuket International Airport (HKT). BKK is newer and more centrally located, best for international flights. DMK serves regional airlines and most of the cheapest flights within the country go through it. Phuket’s airport connects you to the Southern part of the country and all the islands.
It’s so easy to travel around the country, as the train system is robust. The water ferry system is great too, with free shuttles from the major shopping malls to the temples and biggest tourist spots. Within Bangkok, you can easily travel by subway on the Metropolitan Rapid Transit (MRT) or by BTS Skytrain. Both are cheap and adventurous ways to get around. It’s nice traveling with locals, who are always happy to help with directions.
