Useful information about the flight from London Heathrow to Bangkok

When is the best time to book a flight to Bangkok?

Bangkok is bustling all year round. Late November and early December are perhaps the best times to visit, when the city has recovered from the monsoon season and the holiday crowds have not yet arrived. September and October are the rainiest months in Bangkok. The best weather for Thailand's beaches and islands is from December to March. One of the biggest festivals is the Thai New Year, Songkran. It takes place in mid-April and attracts a particularly large number of visitors. Due to cold temperatures in Europe, there is also a strong surge of visitors at Christmas and New Year.

What can you expect when you get to Bangkok?

Bangkok is a fascinating city with a lot to experience. It's loud, crowded, colourful and exciting and can be a little overwhelming at times. There are temples, ancient sites and other attractions to visit. A visit to Wat Pho is a must for any traveller to Bangkok, as it is home to the reclining Buddha, which is fifteen metres high and forty-six metres long. Bangkok is also the starting point for trips to many other parts of Thailand such as Phuket, Chiang Mai or Ko Samui.
