The Airports in Los Angeles and Bangkok
Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) is the fourth busiest passenger airport in the world and the largest in the state of California. LAX is located about 19 miles southwest of downtown Los Angeles. The central complex in the airport features nine terminals that are connected by a two-level roadway. Dozens of airlines offer flights from Los Angeles to Bangkok, including American Airlines, Air China, Malaysia Airlines, Norwegian, and United. There are no direct flights from LAX to Bangkok.
Two airports serve the Bangkok area, with the vast majority of flights from Los Angeles arriving at Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK). BKK is the main international airport in Bangkok, located about 20 miles from the city center. The airport has one terminal, and all flights arrive on Level 2. There are multiple transportation options to get to the city. The Bangkok Airport Rail Link is a convenient choice, taking passengers directly from the airport to downtown in just 30 minutes. You could also take a bus or public van, or you could rent your own car. Don Mueang International Airport (DMK) accepts a smaller number of flights from Los Angeles, and is located about 18 miles from Bangkok. All international flights will arrive in Terminal 1 at DMK. Don Mueang offers the same ground transportation as BKK.
What to Know When Departing From LAX
Because of the federally mandated extra security measures at Los Angeles International, the airport recommends checking with your airline to determine how early to arrive before your flight. The TSA recommends arriving at the airport at least three hours before international trips, and your airline may require even more time. All adult travelers must present a valid photo ID, passport, and boarding pass at the security screening. LAX security uses Advanced Imaging Technology, and all passengers must remove outer garments and shoes.
What to Do While You Wait to Board Your Flight
If you have some time before your flight, Los Angeles International offers a large selection of shopping and dining options in each terminal. Grab a cup of coffee or enjoy a full meal before your trek to Thailand. LAX also has an impressive collection of diverse and memorable art located throughout the entire airport, as well as live music and performances on select dates.
Comparing Los Angeles and Bangkok
The cost of living in Bangkok is significantly lower than Los Angeles. Enjoy a meal for two for nearly a third of the cost in Bangkok, and use public transportation for a much lower rate. Both cities average warm temperatures year-round, but Bangkok highs are nearly 20 degrees higher, so pack accordingly. The Thailand city is 14 hours ahead of LA, and you'll need to exchange your dollars for Thai Bahts.
