The Thai metropolis Bangkok has been one of the most popular travel destinations in the world for years now. And of course we have explored the sights of Bangkok many times over the years and spent a lot of time in the Thai capital.

Our 6 hotel recommendations for Bangkok

Are you looking for a nice place to stay for your Bangkok trip? Many backpackers and other travelers spend some days in the capital at least once during their time in Thailand. Bangkok offers countless accommodations ranging from low-budget to luxury 5 star hotels.

There are so many hotels that it’s not easy to find the right one. To narrow down the choice, we can recommend some accommodations we’ve tried over the years. Here you can find a list of hotels in Bangkok that we recommend.

How to get to Bangkok

Traveling to Bangkok is relatively easy, as there are direct flights and stopovers from all the surrounding countries, as well as from Europe or the Emirates. Flights from neighboring countries arrive at Don Mueang International Airport (DMK) and flights from Europe etc. arrive at Suvarnabhumi International Airport (BKK).

Cheap flights to Bangkok can be found at Skyscanner for example. There you can compare the prices by days, see the flight duration and stopovers. Everything is very clear and absolutely recommended for a first comparison.

If you are traveling to Bangkok from other cities in Thailand or from neighboring countries such as Cambodia, then there are more possibilities. In addition to the airplane you can choose long-distance buses and trains (within Thailand) to Bangkok. Prices and times can be found at our partner 12go.asia.
