 International and Domestic Travel Information for Medical Tourists


Both International and Domestic travelers either arrive at Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK) or Don Muang Airport (DMK), both located just outside of central Bangkok.  These airports serve international air traffic from Europe, North America, Australia, and almost all countries in Asia daily. Some flights from Singapore, Malaysia, and Hong Kong also arrive at Phuket and Hat Yai International Airports in the South, and Chiang Mai International Airport in the North.



Domestic carriers, such as Thai Airways, and international carriers, including AirAsia, fly numerous domestic and international routes into and out of various Thai destinations, includig Phuket (HKT), Chiang Mai (CNX), Hat Yai (HDY), and Koh Samui (USM).


Getting around Thailand is easy.  There are usually 15 or more flights traveling from Bangkok to Chiang Mai each day and the flight is just over one hour.  It is highly recommended to fly or to be transported by a ground transportation company instead of trying to drive yourself.
