    Travel around Thailand gets easier as low-cost airline boom continues:)

    A night on a sleeper train used to be a mark of prestige for travelers in backpacking paradise Thailand, but all that could be about to change thanks to the rapid growth of low-cost airlines.

    Thai Airways, the country's main airline, confirmed this week that it is to launch another low-cost carrier in July next year, operating from Bangkok to allow travelers to travel easily within the country.

    The flight times of the new 'Thai Smile' will be co-ordinated with those of Thai Airways, a statement said, allowing vacationers to fly in and transfer to another destination without needing to transit Bangkok.
