Bang Phli Travel Guide

Bang Phli is found in greater Bangkok and is best known for housing Bangkok’s new international airport, Suvarnabhumi. Due to its close proximity to the center of Bangkok, it does not boast an abundance of sights. However, there is good tourist infrastructure because of the airport.

The reason most people choose to stay in Bang Phli is because they want to be close to the airport. For this reason, visitors will find an abundance of hotels, restaurants and bars. However, for sightseeing, tourists will need to head into central Bangkok. The district is popular with expats and tourists who want to be within easy reach of Bangkok, but don’t want to be stuck in the middle of its congestion.

Bang Phli is famous for its annual lotus festival and sees people travel here from all over Thailand to enjoy this beautiful event. Luckily, with the airport in the center of town, there is no problem getting here from all cities in Thailand.
