If you are looking for a perfect place to get away from it all, search no more. Thailand will take your mind off the problems by keeping you busy day and night thanks to its unique combination of traditional culture and vibrant nightlife.
But before you arrive at your oriental holiday destination, you will need to cover a vast distance of 9540km (5929 mi)! How long is a flight to Thailand going to take, then?
If you opt for a direct flight from London to Bangkok, you need to brace yourself for an overnight flight. Depending on the airlines, the direct route from UK to Thailand takes between 11 and 12 hours.
