Thinking China and IndoChina? Think via Amazing Thailand.

Many folks already use Thailand as the gateway to the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS), which includes Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, and Yunnan, China.

It's the perfect geographical hub, and you get to enjoy the best of Thailand on the way.

I read last week that they are planning to put in a high-speed train from Yunnan to Bangkok. Jing jing! That'll be extremely cool. And there's already a road spanning nearly 1000 km from Thailand through Laos and Vietnam to Yunnan in south-west China. I'm super-keen to try that out on my motorbike some time ...

But did you know that there are already 258 flights per week linking Thailand to major cities within the GMS? In some cases, Bangkok is the only city with direct flights to those cities.

So, thinking of Angkor Wat? No worries, link it via Bangkok with 35 direct flights per week.
Thinking of Hanoi? 31 direct flights per week. HCMC? 49 direct flights per week.
Want to see the temples of Yangon/ Rangoon? 44 direct flights per week.

Thailand links you with the best of IndoChina. So always think: 'Can I get there via Thailand?' for the best of both worlds.
