Access by public transport

A new high speed rail link between the airport and Bangkok city centre opened in August 2010, cutting journey time to as little as 15 minutes on fast services.

Airport Express provides air-conditioned bus services between Suvarnabhumi Airport and Bangkok hotels, operating five routes to central Bangkok. The pick-up area for buses is by the inner curb on level 2 (Arrivals), while the drop-off area is by the inner curb on level 4 (Departures). Driving by taxi or bus from the airport to downtown Bangkok takes around 50 minutes. A number of other routes serve other destinations in the surrounding area.

Taxi: Taxis are available outside Arrivals. It is advisable to book cabs at the service counters. Bus: Airport Express bus services stop outside the international arrivals area, and offer four routes into Bangkok. Journey time averages around 45 minutes. There is also a cheaper and slower city bus option (these services operate from the Public Transport Centre, which is reached via a shuttle bus). Rail: Airport Rail Link runs from a station immediately beneath the terminal building. Fast services, which stop only at Makkasan en route to the city centre, take 15 minutes, while there is a slower city train which stops at six stations and takes a little under 30 minutes.
