"please advise the best and most convenient way to get to mainlinw train station from the airport..."

Do you mean the new Airport Rail Link or the Skytrain or Hualamphong National Train Station?

If you mean the national train station for train rides to other cities in Thailand there is a bus that leaves directly from the terminal.
(AE-4) http://www.bangkokairportonline.com/node/55

Fastest and most direct is meter taxi right from the airport. Meter taxi sign up desk is on the first floor.

Which is it?

Re: bangkok airport transfer

by SirHalberd

Original poster never came back identifying the exact train station he was looking for. Back in early September the new Rail Link was not in operation at that time.

If - IF - the original poster arrives after midnight there won't be a Skytrain or Rail Link to use unless the present closing schedule is adjusted. Right now the Rail Link and Skytrain stop at midnight.

During the day, early evening hours, a visitor trying to get to the Hualamphong National Train Station could use the Rail Link and then switch to the subway and use the subway to go directly to the train station. But it is easier to take a meter taxi or the Airport Express bus from the airport.

One advantage of taking the Rail Link is that you can use a meter taxi at one of the last 3 stops to take you the rest of the way to your hotel. From that point you save surcharge and toll charges and some of the fare based on distance.

Yes, a surcharge, plus toll charges if they apply, are charged to fares from the airport. This is not cheating, toll charges and surcharge is allowed. The taxis agree to wait at the airport for customers, they agree to use the meter only for charging fares and they are supposed to have taxis that are newer and in better condition that other taxis. For this service they get the 50 baht surcharge. Their taxi numbers are recorded by the taxi sign up clerks on a receipt that you get. Toll charges go to Thailand not the cabby! You just have to check that the meter starts at 35 baht; if you grab a taxi is in the city make sure the driver agrees to use the meter before you get in. Most taxi drivers will use the meter unless you try to get a cab parked in front of an expensive hotel. They more often want to bargain the fare!

Travel Tips for Bangkok

Beware of Added Cost

by Mattison

Just a warning about the cheap Bangkok food. We enjoyed lots of great food at very reasonable prices but beware that bottled water is a must and it must also be purchased. Sometimes the water will cost more than the food, and since it's so hot in Bangkok you need to drink lots of it. Just be aware when the restaurant bill comes.

Where are the traffic lights?

by Rachelynn

Be careful when you are crossing bangkok streets, traffic can be pretty packed and sometimes you have to look back and forth quickly and dash across the road!

For example, If you are walking from WTC to Pratunam, you will come to a junction where's very traffic is heavy and there's no traffic light. Just be careful at the cars and esp the tuk-tuks, some of the drivers can be pretty reckless at times.

The place to start out in...

by LittleWonder

The place to start out in Bangkok, as a backpacker or budget traveller, is the Khao San Road in the Banglamphu district. Just go straight here from the airport and you will find accomondation, travel agencies and tour arrangers, and a place to store youre luggage while you get orientated in the area.

This is a short and busy street filled with guesthouses, restaurants, bars and stores. It is the place where all backpackers and young travellers passing through Bangkok meet.

This is a good place of orientation, but not really pretty nor authentic, do explore the city beyond Khao San Road!

Don't be rude

by Linda_T

Thais regard the head as the highest part of the body, literally and figuratively. Therefore, touching people on their head is considered rude. In contrast, feet are considered the most degraded part of the body. Thus, using feet to point something to someone is regarded very rude for Thai people.

Travel light when you come to Bangkok

by enjoyable_bangkok

Big big bag. Or else you can get one in Bangkok for less than $5. Bring thin clothes. The Bangkok sun is very hot. But remember to bring 1 or 2 formal clothes if you planning to visit the temple or go to high class restaurant. No need to bring medical supplies. You can buy it in Bangkok.
