Thailand has a knack for attracting travellers back again because it has something new to offer every time you visit. There's so much to see from white sandy beaches to bustling street markets and famous full moon parties to Thailand's historical sites that date back thousands of years.

While Bangkok is the capital, Phuket is the largest island and the most popular destination for Australian holidaymakers. The island of Koh Samui is the adventure seeker's paradise and with Ko Pha-ngan next door, you won't struggle to track down Thailand's infamous nightlife. Those looking for a cultural break will appreciate the ancient city of Chiang Mai in the north.

Thailand insider flight tips

  • Flight deals can be found to Chiang Mai in the north and to Bangkok in the centre during rainy season, July to November. Peak season coincides with Australia’s summer months of November–March.
  • There’s no shortage of competition on flights to Thailand from Australia. Low-cost carriers such as Jetstar, AirAsia and Scoot operate flights from and to most cities in Australia and Thailand with stopovers in Kuala Lumpur, Singapore or Bangkok.
  • Koh Samui on the south coast adjacent to Phuket and Chiang Mai in the north cannot be reached directly. They are served by airlines such as Thai Airways, Singapore Airlines, Malaysia Airlines and Cathay Pacific with a stopover elsewhere in Asia on the way.
