Airport Bus Tips (28)

Bus from Suvarnabhumi Airport to Khao San

Cheapest transportation from Suvarnabhumi to Khao San would be Bus No.556 from the Transportation Center at Suvarnabhumi Airport to Southern Bus Terminal via Yommarat - Democracy Monument (close to Khao San road) - Thammasat University - Pata Department Store - Southern Bus Terminal. Take a free shuttle bus (Express route) to the Transport Center.
Bus No.556 runs 24 hours but sometimes with very long intervalls.
Or take the Suvarnabhumi Airport City Line (from 6 am until midnight) to Phaya Thai, from there bus 59 (also not very frequent, when you come out of the station to the right, or to the left about 500 meter to Phetchabury rd. and take the more frequent buses 2 and 511), taxi from Phaya Thai should be under 100 Baht.

Link between Don Muang and Sawarnabhumi Airport

When you arrive at Don Muang Airport, and you have to transit to Suwarnabhumi Airport, which is a distance of about 48 km, there is (in December 2013) an excellent connection; the Shuttle Bus.
At the arrival floor, just go out and look for this sign; normally this bus is already waiting.
You have to show your passport and flight ticket from Savarnabhumi Airport and the transport is free of charge !
Every 20 minutes this shuttle is driving for about one hour and a half, ( I was lucky at 19 hrs, he made it in 1hr 15) but knowing the traffic in Bangkok, this is not garanteed.
This shuttle bus is only taking the express motorways around Bangkok, is stopping three times for paying the fee and is driving at a really high speed ! .
I think this is the only way to get a quick as possible from one to the other airport...and free of charge !! ( PS If this would be possible in Paris between Orly and Roissy ... )

Airport Vans

if you book via a travel agency then chances are that you will be fetched by the small vans by the partner tour operator in thailand. upon exiting the baggage claim area, you will se your name being shown on a big portable board by your assigned tour guide and he will lead you to the van and off to downtown bangkok for about 40 minutes drive (if no traffic). these small tour vans can accomadate up to 15 guests and are also used as tour vans for small group tours around the bangkok and nearby areas. The vans will also drive to to the airport for your departure and hence giving a tip to the driver is a must. (100 baht per person will be enough).

Suvarnabhumi to Phayathai

The 15-minutes Phayathai Express Line service from Suvarnabhumi costs 90 Baht per ride. A two-way trip costs a cheap 150 Baht. The Express Line services are the fastest in ASEAN. Bangkok is developed now because of Makkasan and Phayathai Express Lines. I wish Changi Airport could also have an Express Line service.

airport bus to pattaya

most any taxi that can fit will get you to Pattaya for 1500bahts or less. I travel alone and negoiate the price to 1000 bahts, but with a family, it is best to get a regular taxi outside...prefer mini-van to Pattaya between 1200 and 1500 bahts.

If you get there early, you could take the BELL BUS service at 200 bahts each, but they give you door to door service to your hotel. Enclose is the bus travel info from a previous post...your bus is BELL;:::::

During the day to early evening hours you have a couple bus options.

One of the options is Bell Travel. They operate a transportation service that takes you by bus from the Suvarnabhumi to the bus terminal on North Pattaya Road. From there they deliver you by van to your hotel. You need to reserve this service ahead of time. Bell travel posts are available using the search function. Bell bus is 200 bahts each person, so it might save you a few dollars.

buses are cheap but slow

The airport has a bus to the airport bus station every 10 mins. But after that you need plenty of time to get to your destination. Chatuchak weekend market (Jatuchak) pronounced in thai Jat oo chuk, market is "talard" in thai. Sunday afternoon is early close for many of the stall holders so my advice catch a taxi and get there with plenty of time as it would take many weeks to see it all! when the skytrain operates from the airport next year thayt will be the best and fastest system! Not convinced, catch a bus from the airport to Mochit bus station ( Northern bus station ) the markets are very close

Public/City Bus to Downtown Bangkok

If you travel on tight budget like I did, the public bus option I believe is the cheapest among the other means of transportation between the new airport and Bangkok downtown. It only costs 34baht from Suvanabhumi Airport to downtown Bangkok. It's so cheap!

From airport terminal, you have to take Airport Shuttle Bus (Bus No.: Ordinary 1, Ordinary 2, Express 1 & Express 2) to the Public Transportation Center. FREE service.

From Public Transportation Center, you will be able to choose from the following buses that bring to downtown Bangkok:
1. Route 549 Suvarnabhumi-Minburi
2. Route 550 Suvarnabhumi-Happy Land
3. Route 551 Suvarnbhumi-Siam Paragon
4. Route 552 Suvarnabhumi-Klong Toei
5. Route 553 Suvarnabhumi-Samut Prakarn
6. Route 554 Suvarnabhumi - Bangkok International Airport/Don Muang
7. Route 555 Suvarnabhumi - Rangsit
8. Route 556 Suvarnbhumi - Southern Bus Terminal
9. Route 557 Suvarnabhumi - Wongwien Yai
10. Route 558 Suvarnabhumi - Central Rama 2
11. Route 559 Suvarnabhumi - Future Park Rangsit

I took the bus Route 551 to Victory Monument and then took a taxi to my hotel. Or you can go all the way to Siam Paragon and take the Skytrain to where ever you want to go.

For more details on the routes, please visit the official website of AOT:

Airport to City

Would have to agree with Dragonc.
Just came back from BKK 2 weeks ago and went from airport twice while we were there.If your are on your own you could take the express bus from (i think level 1)They have a counter kerb-side and if you know which part of the city you need to go to they will tell you which bus to catch.Cost is 150 Baht per person.You may need to walk or get a METERED taxi to get the last part of your trip from where the bus stops.(this is where travel packs come in handy)
Also if you want to take a taxi go also to level 1 (departures) as there will be taxis droping people of an they will take you rather than having to go to arrivals and wait in the ranks for a fare.Be carefull of touts haveing a taxi that is just a private car.Check they have ID or a meter.If you are lucky enought to get a taxi to use his meter you will have to pay the tolls.
If you agree on a price it should be no more than 400 Bht including tolls.
Have a good trip
Cheers Brendan

Airport bus 150B

We took the bus from the airport to Banglamphu for 150B each. The bus journey takes 45 minutes and drops you off near Kao San Road. Go to gate 8 at the airport (signposted). Comfortable journey and the bus representative warns travelers about getting taxis (i.e asking for the meter to be on) and tuks tuks in Bangkok.
