How to Reach Bangkok
Bangkok International Airport is the major gateway to all of Thailand. Located about 24 kilometers (15 miles) north of Bangkok.
The Hualamphong Railway Station on Rama IV Road is the city’s main rail station, serving most long-distance routes.
Traveling by bus into Thailand is not common for foreigners, though buses do enter the country from Malaysia, Laos, and Cambodia.

Thailand’s capital is its showcase city and, for the tourist, Bangkok certainly has appeal beyond the initial urban landscape. With almost 250 years of history and a proud legacy of culture from one of Asia’s most prosperous recent kingdoms, the city has plenty of sightseeing. Bangkok has several distinctly different districts, reflecting its growth over the past two centuries. Catch a taxi across town from the hotel district of Sukhumwit Road and you’ll find yourself in the old Bangkok of the late 18th Century, when the magnificent Grand Palace and a collection of fine temples were built on Rattanakosin Isle. Adjacent to this is the stately government quarter of Dusit, free of high rises and pleasantly quiet.
