Where to Stay in Bangkok: Suvarnabhumi Airport
Located on Bangna-Trad Road, Samutprakarn Province, about 25 km east of Bangkok. From here you can travel to Pattaya in 40 minutes. Around the airport are located such interesting sites as The Ancient City, the biggest outdoor museum in the world, and Samutprakarn Crocodile Farm. However, there are not an abundance of tourist sites here, like there are downtown. This place is the connecting route from the airport to locations in Bangkok, Pattaya, and nearby cities. Accommodation around the airport is limited to a very few places on Bangna and Srinakarin Road. Because of the crowded traffic in Bangkok and lack of subway connection, transportation is not a straightforward matter. Staying in a downtown location like Sukhumvit, Silom, Siam or near the sky train or subway will be the better choice for most tourists.
How to travel from the airport – Bangkok – to nearby places?
The airport has arranged many kinds of vehicles to serve tourists. For limousine, taxi, or bus, you can contact the service counter outside the terminal building. For a bus heading to downtown choose either #551: Airport – Victory Monument (Express Way) or #552: Airport – On-nuch Station. If you want to travel from Suvarnabhumi Airport to Don Muang Airport you can take bus #554 that passes along the front road of the airport and ends at Rangsit Express Way. Or you can use the airport transfer service provided by ModernThailand.com that will take you right from the airport to your hotel and several locations in Bangkok, Pattaya, Rayong and so on. Our transportation is a private transfer along with a tour guide who will make sure you reach your destination. In the future, the transportation from airport to downtown will be more convenient with the planned Airport Link System that will connect with the sky train (Phaya Thai Station) and subway (Petchaburi Station) . The Airport Link System is expected to open next year.
