Q: Andreas writes: "Hi, I need the cheapest way from Bankok Airport to Khao San Road?"

Q: Mike writes: "Hello, what are the options for getting to Hua Lamphong Train station from Suvarnabhumi airport, please."

A: AE4 Suvarnabhumi-Hua Lamphong (by expressway) - taxi to Morchit MRT and MRT to Hua Lamphong.

Q: Gwyn Jones writes: "Dear Sir, travelling from UK to Phuket on 2nd Jan 07. Best case scenario is that luggage will be checked through to hkt from Manchester. On arrival in the new airport will I be able to remain in 'transit'/collect boarding pass from Thai Airways desk and eventually clear immigration in Phuket, or will I have to clear immigration on arrival and check in again at domestic? Any advice you have will be appreciated. Thank you in advance."

A: We presume you can go directly to domestic and your luggae will be transfered to your on flight. Again, we are looking to hear from people who can confirm this...

Q: Cheryl writes: "I'll be flying from Kuala Lumpur to Bangkok on Oct 13 using Air Asia. Will it be at the same terminal as all international flights. I'll be staying at Mandarin Hotel. What is the taxi fare from Suvarnabhumi Airport to Mandarin Hotel. My departure time is very early in the morning around 7am. Will your taxi stop at the proper arrival area or to a certain place whereby I need to use your shuttle bus. Is it easy to get a cab early in the morning let's say 4am."

A: Sorry - again we don't know... has anyone been to Mandarin Hotel from the new airport? If so please let Cheryl know...

Q: Bbaker writes: "I am trying to find hotels/guesthouses near the NEW airport and am having trouble as all tour books and sites still list places near the old airport. Please advise." We have had a number of people asking this question...

A: We don't know much about about discount accommodation and if anyone has details let us know. However, there's Novotel Suvarnabhumi Airport Hotel, Royal Princess Srinakarin, Grand Inn Come Hotel, and Novotel Bangna amongst others.

Q: Larry writes: "I used to take the airport bus from the old airport all the way to Tower Inn. Will I be able to take the same bus from the new airport?"

A: We don't know for sure, but it's pretty unlikely - the old aiport and the new airport are opposite ends of Bangkok!

Q: Ocean writes: "Where is the taxi stand for taxis into the city at the new airport?"

A: Public taxis taxi stands are located on level four of the departures concourse.

Q: Han s. Chen writes: "Hi; I will be in BKK on Oct.3 at 11;45 PM , this is a scaring time to arrive of a new airport, I don\'t know the latest airport bus to Khaosan Rd is what time and is Rte 551 bus directly going to Khaosan Rd also if not which bus is?! Would you please tell me this urgent and confusion questions.Thanks in advance for your helps of this anxious awaiting questions. Best Regards Han Chen"

Q: Wim writes: "Do the bus services from Khao Sarn Road to the new airport (556 and AE2) have 24 hour service?"

A: Sadly - we can't find the answer... anyone?.

Q: Tony writes: "Hi. I'm flying into Bangkok from Samui on Monday and on to Bahrain on Tuesday. Is the old airport totally gone or is it still being used for domestic fligts? "

Q: L.Mogan Muniandy writes: "What is the taxi (meter) fare from Airport (New) to Grande Ville Hotel?"

A: We don't know the answer to this one.... Anyone?

Quoting John Hughes:
Yes - we understand it finished in June 2011 so that's a bit of a surprise... You can get a local bus but I don’t recommend it. Take the Shuttle Bus outside Exit 5 to the “Public Transport Interchange”. From there you can get Bus 556 which will take you near Democracy Monument. You can walk back to KSR (away from MacDonald's/Democracy Monument. An alternative is the SRT (Airport Railway Link) to Phyathai Station and a taxi the rest of the way to KSR. I know it's not what you want but I would always recommend getting a taxi straight off the airport – they are really well organized at the airport and they are a cost effective way to kick off a trip. Should cost about 10$-12$ to KSR including expressway fees.

These bus number changes makes me crazy :-) Thanks to people like you! Very informative :-) Thank you!

From Suvarnabhumi there is a City Bus 552 that leaves from their bus terminal. The price is 35 baht. Only vans available late at night with no luggage room. But Airport Rail Link may be better because it connects with Skytrain and with the subway.
http://www.urbanrail.net/as/bang/bangkok.htm

Meter taxi sign up desk on first floor. Most taxi rides to hotels in Bangkok around 350 baht using the meter. Have small bills and change available. You are responsible for toll charges, maybe 70 baht. Toll charges posted. Same price for 1 person or for 4 pax.

No Airport Express Buses from Suvarnabhumi any more. Meter taxi and the new Airport Rail Link available.

http://www.bangkokairportonline.com/node/52

http://www.urbanrail.net/as/bang/bangkok.htm

Most meter taxis to hotels in Bangkok come to around 350 baht - give or take 50 baht. This includes the meter fare, any toll charges you pay (maybe 70 baht for 2) and the surcharge of 50 baht paid at the hotel. Meter starts at 35 baht - check it! From the airport taxis are regulated and quite safe. You do not pay for the taxi ride until you get to the hotel but you do pay any toll charges so have small bills for paying the driver. In the city wave a moving taxi over and tell the driver to use the meter - if he agrees (most will) then get in. In front of an expensive hotel move down the street a bit. Wave a moving taxi over and ignore parked taxis. Parked taxis want to bargain the fare and you pay more! Tuk-tuks cost more than meter taxis.

Quoting tonytony:
1. What is the color of the taxi should i chose if i want to go to LANDMARK HOTEL.

2. How much is the fare back and forth from airport to LANDMARK HOTEL.



Go to Meter Taxi (Public Taxi) sign up desk, first floor. Any color taxi. Desk representative will tell the driver in Thai where to go. Have small bills to pay taxi driver. Roughly the price will be around 350 baht which includes possibly 2 tolls that you pay, meter fare to hotel and 50 baht surcharge. No surcharge for return to airport by taxi. Only pay the meter fare in Bangkok and the ride is cheaper. Landmark is an expensive hotel. Avoid parked taxi cabs there because they may not use the meter because you are rich. Walk to the curb and wave a moving taxi over and tell driver to use the meter. Meter starts at 35 baht. Skytrain station near your hotel very cheap and efficient.

What time do you arrive Bangkok? Meter taxi to Hualamphong maybe 1 hour for everyone in the taxi in traffic around 340-400 baht - have small bills available to pay driver. Or, Airport Rail Link to Makkasan, Subway direct to Hualamphong. One person this way maybe 80 baht. Google Airport Rail Link.
