Getting to Suvarnabhumi Airport - Bangkok, Thailand

Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Suvarnabhumi Airport - Bangkok, Thailand 

Currently there are relatively few options for travelling to Bangkok's new domestic and international airport - Suvarnabhumi. In fact, for the first few years at least you have the simple choice, of either car, whether it be hotel, private or taxi or of course the bus.

Getting to the airport is simple enough and depending on time, should only take around 40 minutes to an hour from the centre of Bangkok, and around 1 1/2 hours from Pattaya.

There will be an Airport Express Bus Service which will operate to and from hotels, various stops of importance in the city, suburbs and the airport. We will update this page once the exact details have been confirmed. Public Buses will also be available in central Bangkok from Min Buri - Banggkapi, Happy Land, Victory Monument, On Nut BTS Station, Samutprakarn and Rangsit. It is also likely that public buses will be available to and from Pattaya but we are awaiting confirmation on this.

Another service which travellers in other countries find extremely useful, the city check-in will also be a part of the new airport's services. This service, once established will allow passengers to check-in for their flights, luggage and all while still in the city.

So while, at the beginning at least, the options for getting to the airport - Suvarnabhumi - are limited, construction is already underway for a special train service. The train service is according to one official expected to be ready by 2008 and take roughly 20 minutes to get to the airport from the centre of Bangkok. It is believe that there will be 4 stations on the city line and it will run 24/7.

It is important to point out, and you may well have noticed, that details on transportation are still relatively sketchy. Senior officials we spoke to who asked not to be quoted, admitted that some aspects of the transport system etc would be under review as the airport goes live.
