The cheapest way to get from the Airport to many of the hotels is to get the bus from just outside the departure lounge. As I usually stay around the Lower Sukhumvit area I get bus AB-3 which is air-conditioned and travels along the expressway and then onto Sukhumvit, so I get off at one of the first stops it makes - almost as quick as the taxi and a lot cheaper at only 100baht.
However the buses can get very crowded, especially route 2 which goes to Khao San Road, and the every 15 minute timetable is also a bit variable.

The bus are coloured,single,double deck,A/C,NonAC
Getting from the Airport to the hotel was easy,walk out of the arrival terminal and look for a red coloured bus A2 to Sanam Luang(Khaosan Rd), buy your ticket for 100bt from the kiosk (4by 6 hut) outside and hop on the bus.When you get to Khaosan you will notice all the remaining passengers get off.The bus stops there in front of Sawasdee hotel/resturant.
There is a police station on the same side just past Khaosan Rd where you can get the info on bus routes fares and a map for 5bt.Public transport is hassle free and the conductors are very helpful just ask him to remind you of your stop and he will let you know when it is time for you to get off at your stop.
I will have more as I build my pages>>>
From tha airport you can take a bus to get to the centre. There are mainly 3:
- A1 to West End (Thanon Silom)
- A2 to Khao San Road.
- A3 goes to Sukhumvit area.
As you clear customs, look for the Airport Bus signs, buy the ticket (100B) at the stall and get on the (mini)bus. It will take 60-90 minutes, depending on traffic jams.

Bankok has one of the major...
Bankok has one of the major airports in Souteastern Asia. The problem is not getting there, but how to avoid having a transit there if your destination is elewhere!
Take a bus or a minibus to Khao San Road.
If you have prebooked a hotel they'll usually arrange the transport from the airport.
I prefer to walk around in case I happen to discover something interesting. Otherwise moving around in Bankok is done by tuk-tuk or taxi, except for during the rush hours when the drivers refuse to take passengers.
Tuk-tuks are very charming, but because of the low roofs you don't have any view at all. When the air pollution is bad you might regret not chosing a taxi after all.
When dealing with taxi drivers always insist they use the taxametre (it says on their roof if they have one), this way you won't be tricked.
International to Domestic
Free transfer from international airport to domestic airport. It is better to take this shuttle bus as it travels via expressway. Fast and Free!!
airport express bus
i think 150b is too expensive for less than an hour ride when you can do the same for only 35b via bus 565
suvarnabhumi airport to khao san
bus 565 costs 35b to khao san. from the airport, take the shuttle to the bus terminal. remember it's bus 565! airport bus costs 150b. so there you choose.
