Travelling to Thailand from Europe
Country carriers often fly directly to Bangkok for a return price of €700 - €800.
Many Middle Eastern carriers also fly to Bangkok with a stopover in the home country of the carrier. Such flights are typically cheaper than the direct flights by €100+.
From Bangkok it is necessary to either fly or bus down to Phang Nga, the province in which Koh Phra Thong is located. Further details on how to do this are provided in the local transport section and more detailed information in our travel notes.
Alternatively, there are some return flights into Phuket without the stopover in Bangkok. These are offered by Air Berlin, Qatar Airways (via Doha) and Emirates (via Dubai).
Bookings to Phuket with other airlines will require a stopover, normally in Bangkok. Information on how to get from Phuket to Koh Phra Thong can be found in the local transport section and more detailed information in our travel notes.
