Traveling to Bangkok by air is the most convenient option. Nonstop flights from India are the best and the quickest way to reach this Thai capital. There are more than 30 direct flights from India to Bangkok in a week, from many cities. Taking a nonstop flight from Delhi to Bangkok via SpiceJet, Jet Airways, and Air India is a good bet. The average flight duration from Delhi to Bangkok is a little more than 4 hours. The aerial distance from Delhi to Bangkok is about 2920 km.
Other cities that offer direct flight connectivity to Bangkok include Mumbai, Chennai, and Bangalore. All the flights have an approximate duration of almost 4 hours. The cheapest flights are available during the off-season, i.e., during the monsoon while during the holiday season the flight fares shoot up considerably. There are multiple online travel platforms that offer seamless flight booking services from India to Bangkok.
Reaching Bangkok by road can be very tedious. India to Bangkok distance by road is approximately 4419 km. The route starts from any Indian city to Kolkata – Myanmar - Thailand. The rules in Myanmar are quite strict, and one needs to have the visa and the MMT permit along with various other documents for traveling through Myanmar.

Ashokdangwal's 8 days trip to BangkokTeam has given us support during the trip whenever required and made this journey beautiful.
Ishanm's 6 days trip to BangkokReviews of the arranged trip: Day 1: private vehicle was a 16 seater uncomfortable traveller bus but not the car from phuket airport to krabi hotel. Apple a day resort: Good to stay hotel. Can plan the stay again. Day 2: krabi 4 island tour: Lunch served was not good as compared to the other travellers, travelling with different tour services in Thailand. Overall tour experience was good except lunch. Day 3: krabi to Phuket transfer: through private car, comfortable journey. Centara blue resort- Resort property was huge but not managed/maintained properly, basic Amenities like room slippers were not even provided, there is safety concern for individual to roam alone, no proper lighting inside resort in night time, no CCTV monitoring in the individual buildings. Construction work was on going and not feeling safety for girls. Only water was available free inside room rest kept things were chargeable even a packet of chips was to be paid. No prior check was done on the property by TT Thailand team. Day 4: phi phi Island tour: nice overall experience, good tour service provider, good quality food served. Day 5: transfer from phuket hotel to airport- again the 16 seater cab. Overall ratings- 2.5 out of 5. Improvement needed- 1. We were not getting any information about the driver name, taxi number to match with, only we were informed the times to meet the person at lobby. Huge safety concern. 2. Least guidance to the travellers who are traveling, not even a single call made by TT team to actively understand the traveller needs.

Gurinderjit's 5 days trip to BangkokI planned my last trip through travel triangle. It was just amazing with no hassles. But this time i faced problem regarding proactive communications from executives. We were 2 couples, planned this trip. But at last moment our itinerary got changed but not of other couple. Which created a great confusion. Also I needed to ask for everything. Although things were as planned. It was still a good experience. At Safari world

Priya's 6 days trip to BangkokI would like to thank each one for organizing this trip for us. We had lot of issues and some things went the other way, but appreciate your patience and all the help for the same. Khushboo - Thanks for coordinating so we'll. Also, a few suggestions: 1. Pls inform the hotel check in as we reached Phuket around 10:30to our hotel and the check in was at 2:00pm. If this was well adv booking, it should have been done and informed to us. 2. Leisure days can be cut down or may be discussed as in our 7day trip, we act had only 3days planned... Besides travelling we had a lot of time.

Diksha's 7 days trip to BangkokHello, Travel 2 Agent. We are happily back after the Thailand trip and we’re quiet satisfied with your services. The guides were all good and the hospitality in Bangkok, Pattaya and Krabi were impressive. We were not really happy with that in Phuket. The hotel could be better there. The cabs were good and always punctual. Special thanks to Mr. Jatin Bhawsar, our trip planner for having explained us things well and planning the itinerary as per our needs. We are surely going to refer you to our friends and family for any further travel plans.
