Affordable Flights To Thailand

So getting Thailand via an affordable flight is not as simple as it seems, as pricing to this well-known and desirable destination does not come at a premium like most other destinations.

You will almost always find that the cheapest international or domestic flights have more stopovers and the time it takes must be weighed up against your itinerary, leave period and budget.  The opportunity is that you can often extend your stay in the stopover country as part of your trip, whether it is business or pleasure.

As most specials seem to be inclusive kind of packages – this depends on what you are looking for, a flight or a special travel package?

What most of us do not know is that there are a multitude of airports in Thailand.

The busiest 6 international airports in Thailand are: Suvarnabhumi Airport (Bankok), Don Mueang International Airport (Bangkok), Chiang Mai International Airport (Chang Mai), Phuket International Airport (Phuket), Hat Yai International Airport (Hat Rai) and Mae Fah Luang-Chiang Rai International Airport (Chang rai).  This will help you find an airport closest to the area you are initially travelling to and remember there are 76 provinces in Thailand and covers an extensive area in Asia.

So depends where you flying from and where you going to; whether it is Phuket or the remote areas of Doi Phu Kha national park in the north, find the closest airport that suits your budget, get quotes for an affordable flight to Thailand and book. From there look at luggage class travel. A very exciting and affordable option, it brought a smile to my face.

So, it can be great travelling around by bus in first class, but it certainly is a budget gobbler. What is it like travelling in luggage-class - underneath the bus, inside the luggage compartment full of bags? Sounds dodgy! But that is not true; it is unique.

While all passengers climb up the stairs into first class, you step straight into a private 3 * 3 metre padded and windowless compartment at a 10th of the price – no view but comfortable, quiet and private besides other terrified companions perhaps! This is for the adventurous kind of person. Who knows; maybe luggage class in planes is next!

Like all travel, do your research, read travel bogs and see what others have done, before you, and your heart will be won over by this amazing country with its amazing people.
