Want to plan for your perfect holiday in the Far East? Get a view of the perfectly turquoise Andaman Sea, staying at the romantic resorts of Phuket, tasting the unique Nothern Cuisine of Chiang Mai. the list go on and on. Here are five things you need to know before traveling to Thailand from XXTT Team.
Always fly into Bangkok City than to fly into Phuket or other cities. On average, it’s going to save you around USD200 as Suvarnabhumi and Don Muang Airport, are the cheapest airports in Thailand. Spend a few nights in the Bangkok Capital and make your way to other cities such as Phuket, Koh Samui, Chiang Mai etc.
Our research shows that if you take off and return on a Tuesday, you can save around USD100. Wednesday departures are also an option. But whatever don’t fly on Friday or Saturday, you will expect to pay up to USD100 more.
Everyone loves the summer but it isn’t the best value in Thailand. With the peak season from July and August. The safe bet is always the beginning of May to June.
Between commissions, credit card surcharges, ATM fees and other expenses, you’ll always have to pay a little extra for the privilege of exchanging one currency for another. When exchanging cash or traveler’s checks, most of the time it is better to exchange your money in the country you’re going to, not in the country you’re traveling from. Check out Super Rich Thailand where you get one of the best rates in town.
Download a flight aggregator apps, for us Skyscanner is our weapon of choice. It saves you time by finding the best value flights all around the world or at least gives you an idea what the prices should be.
Or you can try SeatGuru, a website that features aircraft seat maps, seat reviews, and a color-coded system to identify superior and substandard airline seats. It also features information about in-flight amenities and airline specific information regarding Check-in, Baggage, Unaccompanied Minors and Traveling with Infants and Pets.
That should be enough to get you over to the beautiful country of Thailand, and once you’re here – we, Luxxetta, can handle the rest. 😉
