About Bangkok

about thailand

Bangkok, The City of Angels or "Krungthep" in Thai, is the capital city of Thailand.
Bangkok is the hub for most of the commercial and economic activities of the kingdom. At the same time, the city is very famous and appreciated by visitors for its versatility and multiple points of interest. From temples and the Grand Palace, through some of Asia's largest shopping centers and the largest outdoor market of Asia (Chatuchak), Bangkok definitely has what it takes to entertain visitors from all walks of life, either first time or return travellers. Whilst taxi fares are very reasonable, most of the sightseeing can comfortably be reached by Skytrain (BTS) or underground train (MRT). Apart from the sightseeing and shopping, Bangkok has developed into a magnet for food lovers of all cuisines. The same range of choice applies to the accommodation options all over town, from high end international chain hotels to family run guesthouses; the needs of all travellers are guaranteed to be met.


Bangkok international airport is located 16 miles outside town, but it is easy to get to Bangkok city centre, either via the airport link or taxi. Transit passengers will need to proceed to the airline checkpoints located on the same floor of Bangkok Airport. All departures at Bangkok Airport are handled at the airline check-in counters located on the fourth floor of the Departure Terminal. Domestic check-ins are from Rows B to C. Row A is dedicated to Thai Airways’ Royal First Class and Royal Silk passengers. For international departures, proceed to Rows D to W. Always be prepared to arrive at least two-and-a-half hours before international departures or 80 minutes before domestic departures.


Don Mueang International Airport has a simple layout, with two levels. The Departure Hall is on the second floor, and all airlines have their check-in counters there. Other facilities on this floor include money exchange counters, restaurants, souvenir shops and VIP lounges. On the first floor is the Arrivals Hall. There are also a few fast-food outlets, snack bars, an internet café, banks, money exchange counters, souvenir shops, medical service, airport limousine service and car rentals by major brands.

Thailand is also famous for its natural beauty and historical riches which tourists love. The Thai culture, the people, Thailand and the Thai way of life is something not only to smile about, but to miss once on the plane back to your home country.
