Slightly random topic but I am sure there are a few expats out there that can help me.
I am looking to send a parcel to Bangkok (weighing roughly 1.1kg) from England. Does anyone have any idea what the best method to do this is/price/time estimation?
Thanks for any help.

Thanks for the reply somtam but I meant posting an item to Bangkok from England (not thailand to the UK)?

If you're happy to send it surface mail, take it to any post office or the GPO down near the river. They have a wrapping service and everything. Over the years I've send a few parcels this way and never had anything go missing.
You can get an idea on the difference pricing options here at the Thailand Post website.
surface mail does not exist anymore on such distance.
in ANY post office-I guess they still have those in UK (extinct in many continental countries-just counters is shops left) you can send it- with choice of priority=what once was airmail, or non-prior, still by plane, but ''when there is apce'' may take up to 2 weeks longer and is clearly the slightly chepaer. THai customs may open it if they suspect nasty things-but that applies to to: alternative.
Prices should simply on on royalmail www.
Alternative are the much, much more expens. int. freight services like DHL etc. Decide yourself how urgent it all is.
