February is typically the best time to fly to Thailand, but there are other times where great deals are available. April tends to be the warmest period in Thailand so if you are looking for sun or warmer climates then look to fly around this time. September is the wettest if you need to factor this in to your plans.

When to fly to Thailand

Peak Season

The best time to book trips to Northern Thailand is during the cool season (November–February). In the south, the Thailand flights and hotels are packed from March to May. Those travellers heading for a vacation in Bangkok during the peak season from November to March should book their Thailand flights and hotels early. Prices can be twice as high as in the off season, and hotels are often fully booked.

International visitors book Thailand trips to Chiang Mai December through May, and Thais vacation here March through May. November to April is Phuket’s peak season, and January to April is the best weather on Ko Samui. The island is particularly busy around Christmas and has another surge of visitors in July and August.

Off Season

The rainy and monsoon seasons are the off seasons. If you don’t mind the humid and wet weather there are deals on cheap flights to Thailand to be found.

Overview

It is easy to see why millions of travellers book airline tickets to Thailand. Prathet Thai or “land of the free” is Southeast Asia’s premiere destination. Travellers appeals to every traveller – the country is made up of natural regions including the mountainous and forested North; the rice fields of the Central Plains; the farmlands of the Northeast; and, perhaps most famously, the tropical islands and long shorelines of the South. Flights to Thailand land visitors in the most popular and capital city, Bangkok. One night in Bangkok or Chiang Mai and you’ll feed your need for energizing nightlife and scenery.

Perhaps the country’s greatest wealth is its people. Thailand is made up of Thai, Chinese, Malay and minority groups including Mons, Khmers, and hill tribes, who co-exist happily side by side. They are known for their love of family and their hospitality, and are friendly and gracious to travellers on Thailand flights. They also stage some mesmerizing festivals including the “Bun Bang Fai” Rocket Festival (May); Grand Candle Festival and International Candle Carving Competition (July) which marks the start of Buddhist Lent; and the Illuminated Boat Procession (October).

How long is the flight to Thailand?

You will find many flights available from various cities in Canada to Thailand. If you are in Vancouver, you will find that the fastest flight time to reach Bangkok is 18h and 5m. The longest time out of Vancouver is 41h and 25m. If you are in Toronto, the fastest flight will be 20h and 25m to Bangkok, while the longest flight is 30h and 25m. The flight times include the stopovers. The more stopovers there are and the longer they are, the longer the flight time will be.

Which cities offer direct flights to Thailand?

Given the distance from Thailand to Canada, you will not find any direct flights. However, it is possible to find Thailand flight deals that will have just a single stopover. Cathay Pacific Airways will leave from Lester B, Pearson International and will then have a layover in Hong Kong for 1h 30m before travelling on to Suvarnabhumi International Airport in Bangkok. Those who are leaving from the Vancouver Airport will also find flights that have just a single stopover. The Air Canada flight will then have a 45m layover in Tokyo before moving on to Thailand.

What is the best way to travel around Thailand?

The tourist infrastructure in Thailand is strong, which means it is typically easy to reach many different destinations. Two popular options for budget domestic flights within Thailand include Nor Air and AirAsia. This can help to cut down on travel time within the country significantly. There are also train services around the country including the State Railway of Thailand. First, second, and third-class train tickets are available. Those who are looking to go shorter distances might want to consider taxis.

What are some things to do in Thailand?

You will find countless things to do to keep you and your travelling companions busy when you visit Thailand. There are must-see attractions like the Grand Palace & Wat Prakeaw in Bangkok, which was originally built in 1782 for the king of Thailand. You may also want to take a boat right around Phang Nga Bay in Phuket, which features sheer cliffs and green water. Bangkok is also home to floating markets, which offer a range of products. Some of the other places that you might want to visit include Doi Suthep, Ayutthaya, and Wat Arun, the Temple of Dawn. Thailand also has beaches like Railay Beach, which are sure to be popular.

Do I need a passport or visa to fly to Thailand?

Canadians who travel to Thailand will not need to have a visa, as long as their passport has at least six months of validity left from the time they arrive. You will also need to have a ticket that shows you will be leaving Thailand within 30 days. Those who are staying longer than 30 days will need to apply for a tourist visa.

Thailand climate

Thailand’s climate differs between the north and the south. In northern and central Thailand, it’s hot from March to May, rainy from June to October and cool from November to February. In the south it rains intermittently all year long with temperatures around 27 C. It rains every day in the rainy season. The monsoon season lasts from July to November. 

Getting around Thailand

Trains are comfortable, frequent, and punctual. Although slow, taking a train is a great way to see the country. Thailand’s buses are very fast, well serviced, and air conditioned. If you’re pressed for time, catch a flight. Thailand has regional airports, and convenient domestic flights are easy to find.

Transportation in a city or resort is typically a taxi, tuk-tuk, rickshaw, pickup, or hired car and driver. Taxis are usually metered in a city; make sure the meter is turned on. Always negotiate the fare for a tuk-tuk or rickshaw before you set out.

The BTS Skytrain in Bangkok is safe, clean and comfortable. It doesn’t go everywhere; taxis and tuk-tuks will make up the rest of your journey. Chiang Mai doesn’t have buses or taxis, but has lots of covered pickups (songtaos) and tuk-tuks. You can hail a songtao and their fares are reasonable. Many travellers rent motorcycles and bikes in Chiang Mai, but make sure to drive defensively.

Avoid driving in Thailand, both cars and motobikes. Thais drive on the left side of the road, usually at breakneck speeds even around blind corners, and aren’t fussy about driving laws. 

What is good to know if travelling to Thailand?

  • Thailand’s capital mixes the old with the new while maintaining its position as a modern, international city. Bangkok is perfectly attuned with its modern skyscrapers, ancient palaces and temples, and infamous nightlife. A shopper’s paradise, there’s the famed Chatuchak Weekend Market and shops with everything from handcrafts to luxury items. The excellent cuisine is a result of Bangkok’s rich ethnic history.
  • The cultures and ethnic groups in Chiang Mai reflect Thailand’s diversity: skyscrapers surrounding the Old City, monks chanting, hill tribes selling their wares, carved teak houses, modern markets, and condominiums. This is the place to shop for high-quality handcrafts, fine antiques, huge Buddhas, and even furniture. The nightlife is equally diverse, offering the Night Bazaar, discos, lounges, and small bars.
  • Phuket (pronounced “Poo-ket”) is Thailand’s largest and most popular island. The topology alone is fascinating: rocky peninsulas, limestone cliffs, tropical forests, tranquil bays, and white-sand beaches. There’s a beach for every budget, from luxury resorts to bungalows, and Phuket is well-known for its fine seafood. The Patong nightlife is wild and has something for all tastes and inclinations.
  • Ko Samui is an international resort with the attendant comforts, nightlife, and crowds. Most visitors come to have fun and the island offers plenty of it: basking on the beaches, trekking in the hills and forests, scuba diving, parasailing, Thai boxing, sightseeing, or watching working monkeys on coconut plantations. The nightlife reverberates with discos, open-air bars, and dance parties.
  • Near Samui, Ko Pha-ngan is famous for its monthly full-moon beach party, a free party hosted by DJs. The morning after you can recuperate in a herbal sauna and relax on the beach. Popular with international travellers, Pha-ngan offers a full complement of activities from sightseeing to jungle trekking. For a more peaceful vacation, the island also has laid-back resorts.
