Thailand currently has six international airports, in Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Hat Yai, Krabi, Phuket and Ko Samui. The vast majority of travellers fly into Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport.
Air fares to Thailand generally depend on the season with the highest being approximately mid-November to mid-February, when the weather is best (with premium rates charged for flights between mid-Dec and New Year), and in July and August to coincide with school holidays.
Flights tend to be much cheaper between August and November when the rainy season is at its peak. However, in October raining is at its end so if you want save some money and avoid the crowds – that’s pretty good time to go.
