Bangkok Airport welcome

Convenience: For first time business or vacation travellers visiting Bangkok, taking the bus from Bangkok Airport will probably not be a convenient option.

Cost: This, though, is by far the cheapest option and you could easily get to On Nut BTS station for less than 40 baht and then travel on the Skytrain to most other parts of Bangkok for between an additional 20 to 45 baht.

Pitfalls: Most Skytrain stations have only limited escalators, so you may need to carry your suitcases up or down flights of stairs.

Great if you are young and fit, but not so good if you have a wife and children to look after.

Taking the bus from Bangkok airport is probably the slowest way of transferring from Suvarnabhumi Airport to Bangkok.

Directions: Catch a free shuttle bus from the Ground Floor at Suvarnabhumi Airport to the Transport Centre and from there you have a choice of buses that will take you where you want to go.

Just ask for directions, if you are not sure.
