What would you like to know about getting to, from and around Thailand?
Bangkok rivals Singapore and Kuala Lumpur as the region's number one international air-travel hub and as such boasts international flight connections with a vast number of destinations worldwide. Thailand also has land connections with neighbouring Malaysia, Cambodia, Laos and Burma.
You'll need a passport with at least six months validity to enter Thailand.
The vast majority of foreign tourists enter Thailand on either a 30-day visa free stay or tourist visa pre-arranged through a Thai embassy or consulate.
For more information, see our Thailand visa page.
Thailand has two airports in Bangkok (Suvarnabhumi and Don Mueang) and a number of international airports across the country. Regional international airports include Hat Yai, Ko Samui, Krabi and Phuket in the south, and Chiang Mai in the north.
Thailand is the base for a number of airlines. The flag carrier is THAI international. Budget carriers Thai AirAsia and Nok Air are also based in Thailand, as is Bangkok Airways. The country is well-served by low cost domestic flights.
A vast number of international carriers (both full service and LCCs) fly into Thailand, the list includes the following:
All Nippon Airways
KLM-Royal Dutch Airlines
Royal Brunei Airlines
Scandinavian Airlines System
South African Airways
