Nok Air’s new route to Wat Jeh Dee


There are various ways Thais get clues to win the lottery, and the most popular way is to pray for luck from the spirits. Lotto players also visit spots that previous lottery winners have visited and scored success from praying, and Wat Jeh Dee, or Wat Jeh Dee Ai Khai, is the most popular place for now. 

So, Nok Air – a low-cost airline in Thailand, is now offering a new Fly’n’Ride route equipped with a shuttle bus service from Don Muang International Airport in Bangkok to the temple in Nakhon Sri Thammarat starting from 29th September 2020.

Nok Air has Fly’n’Ride routes which offer travellers convenient trips to popular destinations like Railay Beach or Ao Nang Beach in Krabi and Khao Lak in Phang Nga. 

In response to the popularity of Wat Jeh Dee Ai Khai in Nakhon Sri Thammarat, the airline launched a new special route directly to the temple available to reserve from 17th September 2020, with the first flight departing on 29th September 2020.

The bus stop is at a coffee shop which is only 100m away from the temple.

Ai Khai is the name of the spirit of a boy who had lived at Wat Jeh Dee a long time ago to protect the area and property. 

Locals in Nakhon Sri Thammarat and nearby provinces respect him and believe that he can bring them good luck, success at work, and make their business successful.

After the wish is fulfilled, people have to offer Ai Khai some chicken statues, strawberry soft drinks, toys, and firecrackers.

The belief depends on each person, and if praying for lottery numbers is not up your alley, you can also explore different attractions in Nakhon Si Thammarat like Khiriwong Village, Kanom Beach, or Huasai district where you can get photos with wind turbines.
