I’m going to Thailand in 2 weeks and I’m wondering where to go from there. Our flight arrives in bangkok at 7.40pm.
So how far is the airport from the city (somewhere with cheap hostels)? And what is the cheapest method of getting there (I don’t mind using a public bus if that possible)
Thanks in advance!
Nowhere hit the nail on the head on both your questions. Taxi is NEVER the cheapest method of travel. It is however the most convenient.
Taxi drivers are good at knowing the difference between a farang who is a visitor and one who lives here. Some, though very few, will drive up to 20 km out of their way if they know they have a newbie in the cab.
Never agree to a set price for a cab ride, always insist on the meter. Typical tips for a taxi driver (depending on how far you have gone) are anywhere from rounding the fare up to the next 5 baht, to a 10 to 15 baht tip. At the old airport they had a sign saying the standard tip for an airport taxi is 50 baht, and that still may be the case.
The express bus from the airport is great, not crowded, aircon. And the Thais on the AE bus do smile.
KSR is the “backpacker” hangout, it has cheap rooms, but is also loud. KSR is not as bad as it used to be, and I think the CD vendors have been booted out. There is also plenty of good eats for cheap at KSR.
Buses have regular routes, and there are typically one or two people at a bus stop who can tell you if a bus is going your way. However, if the Thai does not speak English he/she will probably giggle and turn away without answering you. Once on the bus, tell the girl selling you the ticket where you are getting off, she will make sure you get off at the right stop. Opt for AC buses, they are about 14 – 25 baht each, but they are cool, rarely crowded and you are not likely to have a pocket picked on there. The non AC buses are crowded, with plenty of dodgy characters.
Ok im traveling to Phuket this year, i have been to Koh samui b4 but i cant remember havin a prob with airports!!!
I can book a domestic flight from Don Mueang airport to Phuket but not from Suvarnabhumi Airport!
Please sum1 help me!!! BKK means Suvarnabhumi Airport, right? and DMK means Don Mueang Airport? So my international flight will go to Suvarnabhumi but how will i get to Don Mueang to catch the domestic one???
Can i get domestic flights from BKK (which i think is Suvarnabhumi)? or does it have to be from Don Mueang?
HELP HELP HELP!!
My international flight arrives in BKK and i have a domestic from DMK..
How will I go from one to the other?
The best way to travel between the airports is to take a taxi, Don Mueang (DMK) is about 40km (24mi) from Suvarnabhumi (BKK). It will take between 45-60 minutes and cost about 350-400 baht plus tollway charges and a 50 baht airport taxi surcharge. There also is a shuttle bus between the airports, but unless you’re on a tight budget a taxi is easier. Besides Air Asia, Bangkok Airways flies to Phuket from Suvarnabhumi and Thai Airways operates some flights from Suvarnabhumi and Don Mueang.
The reason you didn’t have the same problem when you went to Koh Samui, is that nobody flies to Samui from Don Mueang. Good luck.
