Things to do in Bangkok
The Grand Palace
No trip to Bangkok is complete without visiting the spectacular Grand Palace. The palace served as a residence to the king and his court between 1782 and 1925. Though the Royal Family now lives elsewhere, the Grand Palace continues to host royal ceremonies and government events. The Grand Palace is Bangkok’s most famous attraction. Once you step onto the palace grounds, you’ll understand why. The palace is made up of various extravagant styles, as its residing kings have made extensive renovations and additions over the centuries. While visiting, be sure to check out the Wat Phra Kaew (Temple of the Emerald Buddha), which houses the Emerald Buddha, a historic spiritual image dating back to the 15th century. Make sure you follow the palace’s dress code, which prohibits sandals and thongs, shorts or tank tops on men, and bare shoulders on women.
Fairweather shoppers and shopaholics alike will marvel at Bangkok’s famous Chatuchak Market. Made up of over 8,000 booths, Chatuchak Market is one of the largest markets in the world. Merchants offer commodities at reasonable local prices rather than marked-up tourist prices. This market is only open on Saturdays and Sundays, so you’ll need to plan your visit to the market accordingly.
Bangkok National Museum
If you’re interested in learning about Thailand’s rich history, the Bangkok National Museum is a must-see. The museum’s relics include puppets, textiles, gold and precious stones, Khon masks, and royal funeral chariots. Take in the vast range of Thai art and artifacts on a self-guided visit, or go on a Wednesday or Thursday for a tour led by an English-speaking guide.
Eat Thai Street Food
Thailand’s street food is one of the most unique, distinct cuisines in the world. Because of the reasonable prices of Bangkok street food, many locals opt to eat their meals out rather than cooking at home. You won’t have trouble finding street vendors along any busy road selling Thai specialties, such as Pad Thai, roast duck, mango sticky rice, and Thai curry. More adventurous travellers might try squid, durian fruit, and even fried insects.
While staying in Thailand, it’s crucial that you visit at least one of the country’s beautiful temples. Wat Arun is located about 3 km outside of the city centre, just across the Chao Phraya River. The temple is just as beautiful up close as it is from across the river. Named after Aruna, the god of dawn, the temple is covered in porcelain and ceramic tiles, making it especially stunning around sunrise and sunset, when the sunlight is muted.
Best time to visit Bangkok
When should you book cheap flights from Perth to Bangkok?
Thailand’s climate keeps the country warm at all times of the year, but the heat is typically the lowest between November and March. Since most travellers prefer to visit Bangkok during this time of year, make sure you book your return flights from Perth to Bangkok and your hotel several months in advance.
For the best deals on airfare and hotels, you might consider booking cheap airfares from Perth to Bangkok between April and October. Although these months are known for high levels of humidity and rain, you’ll save money and avoid the crowds that typically arrive during Bangkok’s peak season.
Departing from Perth
Perth Airport is conveniently located just 12 km east of the CBD. The airport is easy to get to and has departing flights from many major airlines. Airlines with cheap flights from Perth to Bangkok include Qantas, Jetstar, Scoot, and AirAsia. While these airlines offer no direct flights to Bangkok Airport, many flights include just one stopover, getting you from PER to BKK in less than 10 hours. Perth Airport is separated into four different terminals. The T1/T2 precinct is where you will catch most international airlines. Qantas’s return flights from Perth to Bangkok depart from the T3/T4 precinct.
Getting to Perth Airport (PER)
The most affordable way to get to Perth Airport is on the city bus. If your flight departs from the T1/T2 precinct, catch the 380 bus. The bus starts at the Elizabeth Quay Bus Station and also makes stops at Victoria Park Transfer Station, Burswood Train Station, and Belmont Forum Shopping Centre. The 380 bus has plenty of space for luggage, runs every 30 minutes, and gets you to the airport in about a half hour. To get to the T3/T4 precinct, catch bus route 40 from the Elizabeth Quay Bus Station. This bus departs every 20-30 minutes and gets you to Perth Airport in just over a half hour. Tickets for each bus route are $4.80 from the CBD to the airport.
If you would like to take a taxi or an Uber to the airport, you will arrive in less than 20 minutes from the CBD. Taxi fare from central Perth costs between $30-$45 to the airport. If you are heading to the airport from Fremantle, a taxi will get you to the airport in just over a half hour with fare between $50-$70.
Parking at Perth Airport
Perth Airport offers both Long Term and Short Term parking for all four airport terminals. By booking in advance through the Perth Airport website, you can save up to 30% on your parking. The Long Term car park is perfect when you’ve booked cheap airfares from Perth to Bangkok. The car park is located just outside the airport, and a 24-hour shuttle bus comes every 10 minutes to take you to the terminals. Parking costs about $27 per day, but if your PER to BKK holiday is going to be seven days or more, the weekly rate is $95.
For the most convenient parking right outside your terminal, you may prefer the Short Term car park. It’s located just outside the airport terminals and takes only a few minutes to walk from your car into the airport. The Short Term car park costs about $49 per day and $129 per week when you book in advance online.
Arriving in Bangkok
Bangkok has two major airports that receive flights from Perth. Both the Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK) and the Don Mueang Airport (DMK) are about 25 km outside of central Bangkok. Both airports offer various means of getting to your hotel in the city centre, no matter your travel preferences and budget.
Getting to central Bangkok from Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK)
The fastest way to get into the city from Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK) is on the Airport Rail Link, which completes a full run in about a half hour. This quick service brings you right to the city centre, where you can check into your hotel and start exploring. This train is a convenient way to avoid the city’s aggressive peak hour traffic. The Rail Link operates between 6AM to midnight every day, departing every ten minutes during peak travel time and every fifteen minutes on weekends and off-peak hours. Depending on your destination, standard fare to ride the Rail Link is between 15-45 Thai baht (about 63 cents-$1.89 AUD).
A private bus runs from Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK) to Khao San Road every 30 minutes from 6AM to 8PM. The bus makes multiple stops and takes about an hour to reach its final destination. The fare for this route is 60 baht (about $2.50).
You can reach the city centre by taking a taxi for a fairly reasonable price. If you’re travelling light, you may be able to take a standard taxi, which fits two adults with hand luggage. If you are travelling in a group or have a lot of luggage, you may need to opt for a big taxi. Be wary that taxi drivers only accept cash and often cannot make change for large notes. Driving in the city may take between forty-five minutes and an hour, depending on traffic. Taxi fare into the city ranges between 250-400 baht depending on your destination.
Getting to central Bangkok from Don Mueang Airport (DMK)
If your flight lands at Don Mueang Airport (DMK), Bus 29 is the most affordable way to get to central Bangkok, at only 20 baht. Depending on traffic, the bus takes between a half hour and an hour to reach the city centre. Though it’s a cost-effective solution, it may not be the best option for travellers with a lot of luggage as there is not much space on the bus for suitcases.
Many travellers decide to take a taxi from Don Muang Airport (DMK) to the city centre. Even though a taxi costs more than the public bus, you will be dropped off right at your hotel, without the stress of navigating busy streets of Bangkok. A taxi from Don Mueang Airport (DMK) into Bangkok takes between 30 minutes to an hour depending on traffic, and fare costs about 350 baht.
