Bangkok is one of the most visited cities in the world and is a flight hub to get to many destinations, so many visitors pass through it. A common stopover for a flight is anywhere between two and four hours, and if you have more time than that to kill when passing through Bangkok, you may be wondering what you can do. There are plenty of ways that you can relax before your onward journey continues, and below are some ideas to help you plan your trip, and ensure you rest well before continuing your journey.

Leaving The Airport: Do You Have Time?

Many nationalities do not require a visa to enter Thailand, so you can often go through immigration, collect your baggage, and spend time in Bangkok before you continue your trip. Being able to do this is an excellent way to kill some time when you have hours before your next flight. However, you may risk missing your flight if you travel too far, so if you have less than four or five hours in the airport, you may need to stay there rather than pass through immigration.

Find A Close Hotel

An excellent option that you may want to consider is checking into one of the hotels that are close to the airport. You can get a one-bedroom hotel close to Suvarnabhumi airport in Bangkok at an affordable price, and it will allow you to rest and relax before you continue your journey. You can have a short sleep, freshen up with a shower, go for a swim or use the gym facilities, as well as have something to eat before you head back to the airport which is only a short distance away.

Try A Thai Massage

If you have had a long flight to get to Thailand and you still have further to go, then you can always get rid of those kinks and knots in your muscles by having a traditional Thai massage. Some people say Thai massages are painful, as they work the joints and deep tissue hard to help them relax. However, even though your masseuse may inflict some pain, it is an excellent way to relax and prepare yourself for your next flight. You will also find that you may be able to sleep better on the plane, which will help you to arrive at your destination bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, raring to get stuck in at your final destination.
