||Thailand, situated in South-East Asia, is a country of contrasts and has much to offer the intrepid tourist including a tropical climate, great beaches, heaving cities, tasty cuisine and amazing architecture and culture.
Most visitors arriving on flights from South Africa will enter Thailand via the country’s capital and largest city, Bangkok. There are two airports in Bangkok which accept international flights, though the one which now takes precedence is the newer Suvarnabhumi International Airport (airport code: BKK), located 19 miles (30km) outside the city centre.
There’s a good choice of airlines offering indirect flights to Thailand and Bangkok. From Johannesburg these include: South African Airways, British Airways, Ethiopian Airlines, Emirates, Cathay Pacific, Etihad Airways, Singapore Airlines and Kenya Airways with stops in such cities as London, Dubai, Hong Kong or Singapore.
