Thailand airport help?
Someone I know flies back from Thailand today and will probably be landing in Gatwick. I don’t know what time, therefore I want to know which airport she will be flying FROM, so I can see the times those flights land. What is the airport most people fly from in Thailand?
hope this helps Airport names shown in bold indicate the airport has scheduled service on commercial airlines.

I don’t think I like Skyscanner‘s set-up for searching out a flight, but maybe you will. Just be sure to enter your preferred currency in the field in the upper right corner.
Tripbase and similar sites often prove annoying to me. It currently has seven other sites that it says it will check for you. However, when you select them, Tripbase opens up a new window for each site you have chosen — whether or not that particular site will even offer a flight for the desired route. And what is especially annoying is that one or two of the sites it is supposedly checking are actually search engines that oblige you to do the same thing all over — that is, select from yet another assortment of sites. I think Tripbase itself was even one of the options at one of these sites. What a waste of time.
And how is it that Skyscanner had such comparatively moderate rates? Tripbase‘s sites result in flights well over $500 for a round trip — that is ludicrous.
Much the same thing happens with FareCompare. I used a December set of dates for my Udon Thani/Phuket round trip excursion, and was offered an array of choices beginning at $567 Canadian — that’s half the cost of a round-trip flight from Vancouver (Canada) all the way to Bangkok!
If AirNinja is used for a search, it is necessary to select from a current list of three other search engines that are already included in the previous two sites — it does not actually perform a search on its own. No originality whatsoever here, either.
And nothing — obviously — reasonable to offer. The cheapest was $558 Canadian.
If that is supposedly the cheapest fare available, why do I see Skyscanner offering this for one-way fares?
Popular flights from Udon Thani
* Udon Thani to Bangkok ($57 Canadian)
* Udon Thani to Phuket ($61 Canadian)
By the way, note this cautionary September/2010 forum thread on KhonKaen.com: Air Asia (small print).
I checked the UK’s ebookers to see how it would stack up, and it never returned anything more reasonable than £355.10 for a round-trip flight — that’s currently about $575 Canadian, so on a par with what the previous search engines are coming up with.
What is Skyscanner doing that the others are not?
DomesticFlightsThailand is no better: From 554.00 CAD, and only offering Thai Air as the carrier.
I just tried Kayak, and used a set of November dates: $90 Canadian ($89 U.S.) with Thai AirAsia.
The solution? It seems that going directly to Thai AirAsia‘s site and making a search yourself is the surest route to arrive at a decent fare. I have just done so, and using a set of January (2011) dates, was offered a promotional rate of 1,199.07 Baht (about $40.75 Canadian) for a round trip. The regular rate is listed as only 1,386.92 THB (about Canadian $47.11).
A pox on the other useless search engines!

Thailand Short Break?
I been to Thailand many times now and looking for a new place to go to in that country that is :-
A Easy to get too no flights Preferably by bus or train
B Not too Expensive Stay in Hotel or guest house nothing back packing type
C That you have been for yourself and thought wow !! To stay for a few days Style of stay Beachtype or Country
I have been to Chiang Mai Pataya Rayong Huahin Cha Am Koh Samet any suggestions MY GF lives in Khon Kaen so can be in the Northern Areas also
I dont mean obvious places Ie Phuket or Koh Samui just unusual or off the beaten track not too touristy just suggestions
If your GF is from Khon Kaen and you have never been there, it is a really nice place to hang out and relax. You can get a really nice room at the Princess Hotel near the Sofitel for US $30 or less. Has its own disco, billiards room, karaoke room, etc. Transportation from the airport to the hotel is 70 baht.
There are lots of nice temples in KK, massages are very cheap, the lake and the dam, food is dirt cheap, and most locals enjoy foreigners. Lots of nice restaurants around the lake in town including the Lakeside which offers live music nightly, and excellent low cost meals. Very romantic.
Udon Thani is a nice place to go as well.
Khao Yai National Forest is a great place to visit, however, you need transportation to get to the top of the mountain. Khao Yai has lots of waterfalls, is pure nature, (you can camp on top of the mountain), and the forests are full of WILD ANIMALS. These are not zoo animals but animals in their natural habitat and therefore they are dangerous. Khai Yai is close to Prachinburi and between Prachinburi and Khao Yai are some nice inexpensive cabins and resorts to stay.
Vientienne in Laos is also another cheap place to visit, however you do need a passport and have to pay on arrival visa to enter the country. For US it is around US $30 to be paid in cash.
You have already visited most of the touristy places in Thailand. However, the places I mention like KK and Udon Thani are where lots of foreigners have decided to move and make their permanent homes.
I split my time between work in BKK, home in Khon Kaen and home in Chiang Mai.
A few bahts and a digital camera to record the memories is all you need to have a good time.
Hope this helps.
