Getting Around in Thailand

Many travelers take advantage of cheap flights between major attractions and cities in Thailand, but to truly see the country and understand the culture and people, consider buses and trains. The sites in this section show you how.

Dulcinea's Insight

  • Book plane reservations early during the Songkran Holiday, or the Thai New Year (April 13 to April 15).
  • Tuk-tuks are “taxis” with three wheels. They’re unique forms of transportation within Bangkok, and generally fares are from 30 baht to 150 baht. Be sure to bargain for your fare, as tuk-tuks lack meters.
  • The primary airlines operating routes within Thailand are Thai Airways and Bangkok Airways, while Nok Air has many discount fares within Thailand. Their Web sites have helpful planning tools like route maps that can help you determine which cities to visit.
