If you are looking for direct flights to Thailand from Australia, Thai Airways offers non-stop flights from Sydney to Bangkok in less than 10h. However, it is also easy to find flights to Thailand with just one stopover through momondo. Scoot offers flights from Sydney to Bangkok with a stopover at Singapore Changi Airport (SIN). Singapore Airlines and Qantas operate along the route from Melbourne to Bangkok via Singapore as well. Passengers departing from Brisbane can also travel to Phuket with a stopover at Changi Airport.

What is the best way to travel around Thailand?

Whether you are travelling between cities or island hopping, there are many ways to get around Thailand. Thailand has an excellent rail network with a wide choice of comfortable seating, including first-class night trains and inexpensive third-class tickets. The night train from Chiang Mai to Bangkok takes 12h, while day trains tend to stop more frequently. Book train tickets in advance during the high season. Travelling by bus is an economical way to get around. Air-conditioned tourist buses connect the major cities, and while they are more expensive, they are more direct than local buses. Tuk-tuk, rideshare, open vans with bench seats, mopeds and local buses are the best way to travel around larger cities. If you’re short on time, flying is the fastest way to get around Thailand. Both major airlines and budget airlines offer flights to large cities as well as the islands. Renting a motorbike and riding across the country is also a popular way to see the country. Travelling by ferry is the best way to get around if you’re island-hopping in Thailand.
