What are the best restaurants and cafes in Bangkok?
Karmakamet Diner is one of the best brunch spots in the city. It has a gorgeous rustic interior, a tasty menu and a lovely ambience. If you want to avoid the crowds, come here before lunchtime and try their pancakes or their breakfast plate. When you're done, you can pick up a few souvenirs to remind you of your flights to Bangkok. The diner sells a range of goods including skincare products, candles and other homeware goods.
House of Eden
House of Eden is a delightfully pink dessert cafe and is one of Bangkok’s most popular themed cafes. If you’ve got a sweet tooth or you’re buying return flights to Bangkok for someone who would love to try Thai fusion desserts, the cafe is worth visiting. The pink interior design is gorgeous, and you can snack on matcha chocolate lava cake, tiramisu, crème brûlée and other treats.
Need a caffeine fix? Make a pitstop at B-Story Cafe. It's an extraordinary coffee shop that serves up 3D animal lattes and offers a mix of Thai and Western dishes. The cafe has Gothic-style decor and architecture with dried flowers all around the tables.
Not Just Another Cup
Not Just Another Cup is another popular brunch spot in Bangkok. You can order classics like French toast, a full English breakfast or eggs Benedict. If you're buying return flights to Bangkok over the rainy season (July to October), it's a cosy spot to curl up with a good book while you wait for any drizzle to pass.
What are the best things to do in Bangkok?
Wat Arun is one of the most beautiful temples in Bangkok. If you want to explore it, you'll need to wear clothes that cover your knees and shoulders. When packing for your flights to Bangkok, bring along a scarf. You can use it to quickly cover your shoulders if you're wearing a tank top. The best time to visit Wat Arun is early in the morning or right before sunset. You'll miss a majority of the crowds and have the chance to explore the temple without hordes of other travellers and worshippers.
The Grand Palace
You can't buy flights to Bangkok and not visit The Grand Palace at least once. It's a stunning example of Thai architecture, where almost everything is covered in gold. While on the palace grounds, you can also stop by the Temple of the Emerald Buddha. The easiest way to reach the palace without a tour or taxi is with the MRT system. The station Sanam Chai is a 15-minute walk away from the Grand Palace.
The Erawan Museum is famous for its exquisite pink and white staircase. Inside, you can explore three levels that represent the underworld, earth and heaven in Hinduism. As you'll need to remove your shoes before entering the museum, don’t forget a pair that you can easily slip off when packing for your flights to Bangkok. Entrance to the museum is 300 TBH ($15.51 NZD).
What is the best way to get around Bangkok?
The BTS Skytrain is a popular mode of transport for travellers buying tickets to Bangkok. It’s cheap, reliable and easy to use. The trains run every 5 to 10 minutes from 5:30am until midnight. Prices are calculated by distance travelled, but range from 16-59 TBH ($0.83 - $3.05 NZD). There is also a one-day pass with unlimited rides for 140 TBH ($7.24 NZD). You can also use the BTS Phaya Thai station to connect you to the Airport Rail Link that stops at Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK).
If you can't get somewhere with the BTS system, the MRT subway should get you to your final destination. The purple and blue lines have several stops across the city and are a convenient way for travellers booking tickets to Bangkok to get around. The service runs from 6am until midnight every day. Fares range between 14-70 TBH ($0.72 -3.62 NZD).
While the public buses in Bangkok are cheap, it's not a popular mode of transportation with tourists buying airfare to Bangkok. Due to the city's heavy congestion, journey times are often longer, and many drivers may not speak English. If you need to use the bus, buy a local SIM card at Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK) when your flights to Bangkok land and use Google Maps to help you get off at the right stop.
If you want to use a taxi in Bangkok, you need to make sure the driver has a working meter installed. Otherwise, you run the risk of getting a driver that will inflate the fares. While Bangkok doesn't have Uber, you can use a similar ride-sharing app called Grabr. You can pay with cash or credit card, and it saves you the hassle of haggling with a driver. When your flights to Bangkok land at Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK), you can take a cab into the city for around 250-400 THB ($10.33 to $20.60 NZD).
Tuk-tuks are a quintessential Thai experience that most travellers buying return flights to Bangkok want to experience. Make sure to negotiate a fare with the driver before setting off on your journey.
