Thailand is connected to all major cities in India. You can choose from a variety of options like Jet Airways, Bangkok Airways, Air India, and yours' truly; Air Asia. We took Jet Airways and landed at the Suvarnabhumi International Airport, Bangkok.
Be very careful of your onward booking. If you have an immediate flight to catch then make sure it is at least 4-5 hours later. All domestic flights in Bangkok operate from Don Muang Airport which is 30 -45 mins away from the International Airport. So keep requisite buffer as you will have to clear immigration and Visa formalities.
A typical round trip to Bangkok should cost you Rs 23,000 Mumbai> Bangkok.
Thailand offers visa on arrival for tourists who are staying for less than 15 days. This costs 1000 BAHT, ie 2000 INR. You will have to carry your passport, your return tickets, a hotel booking proof and visa compatible photographs.
