Why It's a Deal A recent Kayak search showed round-trip airfare between Los Angeles and Bangkok on Singapore Airlines for $1,206 in early April. Add that to about $478 per person for a five-night stay at the Tawana Bangkok, and you'd pay at least $1,684 for the airfare and hotel alone. This BT-exclusive deal also includes tours, roundtrip airport transfers, and daily breakfast.
More You can get to the Ancient city via a daylong boat trip on the Chao Phraya River, which can be booked through Escapes Unlimited from about $85 per person. To extend your stay at the Tawana Bangkok, add $60 per person, per night.
