Thailand Transportation

Getting to Thailand

By Flight

The most used international airports are located in Bangkok and Phuket, while Chiang Mai and Ko Samui mainly receive flights from Southeast Asian countries. Since Bangkok has the largest airport in Thailand, thus making it a busy gap for plenty of services. Thai Airways and Bangkok Airways are the national carriers that well connect the nearby regions. The latter has free WIFI when you are waiting to board the plane. Thanks to the powerful airway service, Thailand is a convenient gap for anyone who wants to extend their Thailand tours. 

By Train

Railway travel is not an ideal way to get to Thailand for the ride is slow and the route is not well-connected with hot Southeast Asian destinations like Myanmar, Laos, and Cambodia

Getting Around Thailand

By Flight

Due to the large scale of Thailand, domestic flights are good choice to make when you need to travel between cities. The price is reasonable and there are often nice deals to snatch because competition on the routes is fighting hard. Book air tickets early if possible, seats can be reserved online for you don’t want to see the fares rocket high after a while. To save your time, Indochina Odyssey Tours would love to help you make the booking.

By Train

Railway trips are cheap to make but it will cost more time on the road since Thailand is a large country. Delays can be expected. The prices of the best train class are sometimes equivalent of budget airfares. 

By Bus

Although the road condition in Thailand is way better than that in its neighboring countries Cambodia, Laos, and Myanmar, it’s not suggested take bus for travel for your safety is the biggest thing we are concerned about. Bad driving habits are prevalent among bus drivers, who often take drugs to fight against work shifts. In contrast, a private van is more considerable. Indochina Odyssey Tours offers private vans that are air-conditioned, insured, clean, and regularly maintained to make sure your visit to Thailand attractions is pleasant. Your private driver is licensed and always put your safety first. 

Tuk-tuk or Songthaew

Tuk-tuk is a small three-wheeled vehicle that can be found in all Southeast Asian countries. Songthaew is truck-converted and equipped with bench seats in the back, which is translated into ‘minibus’ in English. The two transportations are easy to hail everywhere, but remember to haggle with the price first. English works with some drivers but not all. 

By Taxi

In major tourist cities like Bangkok and Chiang Mai, taxi is available. Don’t take those without a meter. 

By Long-tail Boats

Long-tail boats are generally ferries that are great Thai trademarks. They are long, thin wooden boats powered by diesel engines at the end of a long drive shaft, which is quite noisy on the journey. They may take longer hours to get to your destination, but the experience for short distance cruise is interesting and worth trying.
