Portland International airport is located 10 miles north of Portland, Oregon via I-84 E. There are several flight options between Portland International (PDX) and Bangkok International (BKK), although there is no direct flight. Flight times are usually just over 19 1/2 hours. The airport is located only 20 miles from the city center but heavy traffic makes for a long drive. There are many ways to get to the city including high-speed train, a commuter rail and public buses. In addition, taxi and rental cars are available.
A tuk tuk is the main form of transportation in Bangkok. An excellent way to explore is to have a driver speed you around the city. Most of the tourist attractions are concentrated on the island of Rattanakosin, often called the Old City, including the Grand Palace, Wat Phra Kaew (the most sacred temple of Thailand) and Wat Pho (the world's largest reclining Buddha statue). At Siam Niramit in Ratchadaphisek, there are cultural performances where over 150 dancers depict the history of Thailand.
Due to its proximity to the equator, Bangkok is one of the hottest cities in the world. Year round temperatures are about 86 degrees. The wet season lasts from May until October and is characterized by massive downpours and thunder. November to February is the coolest, driest time of year. People dress lightly year round; however, remember that many palaces and temples have strict dress codes.
