Flight | Suvarnabhumi Bangkok to Luang Prabang International Airport
Suvarnabhumi International Airport Bangkok
I wanted to add a post about Bangkok’s spectacular Suvarnabhumi Airport. Our flight to Luang Prabang is the first time that we have used this airport during the day, which allowed me to get some decent photos (and video).
Usually, the only time we use this airport is when we fly to and from Bangkok from the United States — both of which are typically late at night (around midnight). But this time around we have a daytime flight to Luang Prabang Laos on Thailand’s flagship air carrier – Thai Airways.

Today (Dec. 7th) we had a midday flight to the northern Lao province of Luang Prabang. Our first time flying with Thailand’s premier airline, Thai Airways – went very well and without any delays.
The only difficulty we had was going through the Lao “Visa on Arrival” process. What usually only takes a few minutes to do in other countries, took about an hour here.
We must have caught them on a bad day because we had been told that this normally only takes 10-15 minutes. After getting our visas, we got our bags and found our driver (provided by the hotel) to be transported to the Mekong Riverview Hotel.
