When you exit the arrivals terminal you will see an English sign saying "Taxi", with a desk. You tell them where you want to go. Just walk over to it and they will take care of everything else, maneuvering you around until you suddenly find yourself in a taxi. Some people recommend going up to the arrivals level and catching a taxi leaving the airport because you save a $1 on the airport entry fee... bid deal.

The whole trip on the highway (including tolls), should cost around $8 USD. Keep some small bhat handy to give the driver for the toll booths.

The bus is the easiest way to get to Khao San Road from the airport. The half hourly airport bus A2 departs from the first floor. Buy a ticket for 150 baht from the ticket booth before boarding. The ride takes about 45 minutes, but can be an hour or longer depending on traffic. The bus drops you off at Chakrabongse Road, slightly south of the corner with Khao San Road

if there are two of you, the taxi works to be about the same as the airport express bus.

There is also the train that connects the airport to the city, but you still have to get a taxi once you reach the city.

From Suvarnabhumi Airport to Khaosan Road you can take Airport Express Bus. Number AE2.
Buy the ticket at the counter. It is located at level 1, near from entrance number 8. It costs 150 bath.
This bus will operate until midnight.

Travel Tips for Bangkok

Street Food

by solopes

For a question of safety I never eat in the streets in tropical countries. I respected that precaution in Bangkok, but must confess that nowhere in the world the food looked so nice and apettizing.

Well presented, cheap, and with hygienic precautions, so, if you are in a budget that may be a good solution.

Bangkok Travellers Oasis

by YaaDong

Khaosan Road is a famous backpackers area filled with wall to wall guesthouses.So this is the place to head if you are looking for a bed for the night,book tours ,look for deals on airline tickets or just wanting a meal and meeting other travellers.
Wonder down Khaosan's many little alley ways that are like mazes that leads you to more guesthouses,shops,bars.travel agents and then find yourself on a completly different Soi.

Check out:
D&D Guesthouse- air-con rooms and a pool on the roof with a view.
Buddy Lodge -more up market than most on Khaosan Rd also with a pool.
Khaosan Center -good place to eat ,drink & people watch.
Gullivers Pub -nice bar with good food , pool tables ,free internet,friendly staff & air-con.
The Club- if your looking for some techno beats later in the night.
Roadside bars and street vendors

English Language Newspapers!

by machomikemd

There are three English newspapers in Thailand, the most popular is the Bangkok Post. The other two are The Nation and The Business Day. These newspapers offer quality information on general news but news that makes headlines in the Thai newspapers is often omitted (crimes by Thai nationals against Thai nationals)

Almost all English magazines and books are available in the better bookshops like "Asia Books" with several branches throughout Bangkok, note that prices are high since the magazines are imported.

"Sanuk" and having a “len”

by Bangkokjoe

The keywords in Bangkok are: Sanuk and Len.

If it isn’t "sanuk" then why do it? Sanuk means to have a good time, to enjoy oneself and to derive pleasure and joy from something. It is almost a rule of living for Thai people that whatever they do have to be "sanuk". The concept of "sanuk" goes beyond the having of a good laugh or a good time at a dance or a performance, it's the feeling you need all the time to keep on going.

Here you go with some examples of "sanuk" activities.

...Thamngan sanuk - enjoying work
...Khui sanuk - enjoying a good chat / being a good chatter
...Daa sanuk - enjoying scolding your bloke
...Thuuk daa sanuk - enjoying your missus scolding you.

If you want to meet the locals it’s dead easy. Show you are enjoying yourself, lob the biggest grin on your gob, and look approachable. Who cares how old, how large, how smelly (well they do mind the smelly bit) you are, you will find Thais coming up and wanting to be part of your “sanuk”. The same concept of deriving pleasure from whatever one does is reflected also in the use of the word "len".

...Poot len - you’re having a laugh, talking rubbish / funny.
...Len pool mister? - Do you fancy a game of pool?

Sanuk and len (and food) may help us all understand the priority of the Thais. ...People. And once a year a bit of “sanuk” dabbling talcum powder on Bangkok’s Finest is most certainly a good “len”. ...And no, you can't have your 300THB back for not wearing a crash helmet on your motorbike. Sanuk only goes so far.

Just something that really bother us

by beebah

As you might have heard it before. Here is Land Of Smiles. But it doesn't mean we don't get upset :-) we do.. and sometimes from reasons that you might not understand what you did wrong.

Keep your feet low
Wether you do it on purpose or not. Pointing your feet to anyone is considered very rude here. So, here are some examples I can think of..(most are from what I've seen tourists do here and that really bother us)

1) In The Temple
There're Buddha images in every temple (ofcourse) and you're welcome to go inside and walk around or sit inside the monastery. Question is how to sit.. well, just do not stretch your legs and point your feet to Buddha statue. (To be nicer, don't stretch your legs any ways at all, it's position that we sit on the beach, watching TV at home, chilling out in the public park.. stuff like that)

So question is how to sit? Sitting with typical meditation position is very OK.

2) On the bus, train, boats
Again, we're not happy when someone points his/her feet to anywhere there're people sitting around. For example.. in the bus or boat that might have many seats left in front of you and it seems OK to put your legs there (like resting your legs on the working desk)

But it is not OK. People hate it. There'll be no one comes to you and say "hey, don't do that" because on the other hand we know that visitors "don't know" so it's forgivable. But deep down. I can tell you, everybody here hates it.

Safest way, keep your feet lower than knee-level. Don't point them around.

3) In the park
Here, you can take it easy. We're not crazy about spotting tourists feet :-) you can sit however you want. Just make sure there're no other people lying around too close to where you'll stretch your legs. Because it means your feet will point too close to their heads which is unaccpetable (again! what a fussy country!) :-)
