From Suvarnabhumi to Bangkok and further afield

Cheers! Here you are in Thailand – safe and sound after a long trip – and your next step is to get from Suvarnabhumi to the place to lay your head in Bangkok, is it not? Suvarnabhumi has great transport connections with the central areas of the capital, and you have a wide choice of options which differ in price, level of comfort and time to your destination.

Public transport from Suvarnabhumi to Bangkok

If you are looking for a budget way to get from Suvarnabhumi to Bangkok, head to Bangkok Airport public transportation centre. There are shuttle buses between the airport and the transportation centre: look for lines A, B (both at the first floor of the passenger terminal near Gates 1 and 10), C, D and Express Line (these ones stop at the departure and arrival halls at Gate 5). Shuttle buses run from 6am till 12.25am every 5–15 minutes except for line B, which runs twice an hour.

Frequent BMTA buses run between the public transportation centre of Suvarnabhumi Airport and different destinations around Bangkok. These are N550, 553, 554, 555 and 558. These buses are quite slow but cheap. Remember that in overwhelming majority of cases you will need to connect to other buses or BTS to get to your destination.

Between 5am and 10pm there are also public vans which you can board at gates 1 and 8 of the passenger hall. These go to Victory Monument, On Nut, Rangsit, Samut Prakan, etc.

There is an airport rail link to Phaya Thai (30 minutes with Suvarnabhumi Airport City line and 17 minutes with Airport Express) and Makkasan (15 minutes).

The most comfortable way to get from Suvarnabhumi Airport to Bangkok is by taxi: no need to figure out you route and change buses. Taxis in Bangkok are quite affordable and you will inevitably see passengers queuing to get a cab.

Private transfer from Suvarnabhumi to Bangkok

A good alternative to a taxi, especially if you are travelling in a group of 3+ and have bulky luggage, is a private transfer. 12go.asia offers 9-seats PGS Toyota Commuter vans ready for departure any time on your request. The cost of the trip is THB990 for the whole vehicle which is a great value for the comfort you get. Note that if you are planning to hire a taxi to get from Suvarnabhumi to Bangkok and there are more than three of you plus luggage, you will need at least two cabs and will definitely spend more time trying to coordinate your route. Even for the most experienced travellers we recommend considering a private transfer to Bangkok to ensure a smooth beginning of your stay in Thailand.

PGS company also offers 3-seats Toyota Camry at a tad lower price of THB880. The price is final and is inclusive of all the taxes and fees (e.g. tolls). Though this option will probably cost you more than a public taxi, it still takes off a great deal of your headache after a long journey.

Not planning to make a stopover in Bangkok?

If you are not planning to make a stopover in Bangkok and are heading directly to your next destination, note that several companies provide direct service from Suvarnabhumi Airport to major resort cities throughout the country, including Hua Hin, Pattaya or Koh Chang. There are ticket stands right on the spot but note that tickets sell out quickly, especially during the busiest winter months and you risk missing the next bus – or even risk finding no available tickets for the whole day – without prior booking.

From Suvarnabhumi to Don Mueang airport

PGS offers a comfortable private transfer service from Suvarnabhumi to Don Mueang airport. A 3-seats Toyota Camry will cost you THB990, and a 9-seat Toyota Commuter – THB1100. The rates are all inclusive, and the trip lasts about 1½ hours depending on traffic.

Tip: If the queues at the nearest to your gate passport control booth look too long, do not despair. There are three passport control areas on the international arrivals level Suvarnabhumi, so you can try your luck with the next one.

From Suvarnabhumi to Koh Chang, Hua Hin or Pattaya

Though booking your ticket to Koh Chang, Hua Hin or Pattaya from Suvarnabhumi in advance is a great way to save your time, if your flight is in delay you risk missing your bus. Is there a way out? Yes, there is. Buy your ticket online after you land!

Tip: Six International Airports of Thailand, including Suvarnabhumi, offer free Wi-Fi to their passengers. You can get 120 minutes of free WiFi with AirportTrueFreeWiFi. Just press Get Free WiFi button in your browser after connecting to the network and follow the instructions on your screen.

From Suvarnabhumi to Koh Chang

There are four vans a day from Suvarnabhumi to Koh Chang operated by Burapha. They depart from Suvarnabhumi Burapha van stand at Suvarnabhumi transport centre at 7.50am, 9.30am, 11am and 2pm. The trip lasts 6½ hours and includes a ferry ride. Tickets cost THB650.

From Suvarnabhumi to Hua Hin

There are Bell Travel VIP24 buses plying the route between Suvarnabhumi and Hua Hin. The trip takes about four hours but is highly dependent on traffic. Buses depart every two hours starting from 7.30am. The last one leaves Suvarnabhumi at 7.30pm. Tickets cost THB306. Bell Travel bus station in Hua Hin is located in Phetkasem Road between Soi 96 and Soi 98.

From Suvarnabhumi to Pattaya

Buses from Suvarnabhumi to Pattaya are numerous but the seats sell quicker than you can imagine. The first bus with Bell Travel leaves at 8am and then every two hours with the last one departing at 6pm. If there are no tickets for the next departure, you can kill the time in a Thai-style Magic Food Point canteen next to Gate 8 on the Level 1. If you do not want to wait, come prepared: book you ticket in advance. With 12go.asia tickets from Suvarnabhumi to Pattaya cost THB272; travel time is about two hours. In Pattaya buses arrive to the Northern Bus Station in North Pattaya Road.

Passenger reviews out of total 218 passengers traveled with us on this route

At 12Go our operators offer three types of service:

Cheap, Fast, Good - but you can usually pick only two of them!
Cheap & Fast won’t be Good. (e.g. buses from/to Khao San Road, local buses or 3rd class trains)
Cheap & Good won’t be Fast. (e.g. VIP trains in Thailand)
Fast & Good won’t be Cheap. (e.g. private limousine services, or VIP24 buses vs Express buses)

Make your choice! Please remember that though we are closely monitoring services, we are still an agency marketplace - meaning we focus on ticketing service and route availability / coverage rather than on factual seat recline angle you got today ^_^

Excellent service. First there was the person who greeted me at the airport. Friendly and helpful. Good English (so good communication). Then the driver. He was very nice, very professional. Really tried to make me feel welcome. Car was luxury Toyota, clean and very comfortable. I highly recommend.

★★★★★ Dec 18, 2016 (charter Van 9pax, PGS) :
Quick to get the driver once we arrived at the pick up location. Safe driver. It was good we had printed a map so the driver was able to find where we are staying. It might have been good for them to have looked it up in advance since we sent the information in advance. Great to not have to worry about a taxi after flying all day.
★★★★☆ Dec 5, 2016 (charter Comfort, PGS) :
Very nice ! Bigge sign at the airport might be an advantage for the weary traveller but other than that nice experince
★★★★★ Nov 23, 2016 (charter Comfort, PGS) :
On time well presented cab and driver very good service
★★★☆☆ Oct 26, 2016 (charter Comfort, PGS) :
We booked our taxi for 8.15am but couldn't see our name on any of the numerous signs between gates 3&6. We eventually asked the tourist board for help &they rang the number on the voucher & were told that the taxi would be 15mins & by gate 3. We were met at 9am by a representative & saw our taxi 5mins later. It would be useful if you could text as taxi is arriving to let us know if you will be late & also if you have a clearer sign with your company's logo
★★★★★ Aug 28, 2016 (charter Van 9pax, PGS) :
So easy and stress free. Rep was waiting as we left arrivals & took our bags to the van. Van was clean, comfortable & cool. Drive was polite & safe. Took an hour to riverside BKK hotel & cost 970 THB. Taxi is cheaper but this was so convenient it is worth the extra especially with 3 kids!!!
★★★★★ Aug 6, 2016 (charter Van 9pax, PGS) :
The service on airport was good and the driver was quick and save. Excellent booking procedures by Internet. Walter, Netherlands
★★★★☆ Apr 16, 2016 (charter Comfort, PGS) :
The main thing is that there was no indication of where the driver was to pick up at the airport. Upon arrival we were expecting to see our names displayed instead we had to seek the PGS support services. Fortunately we bought the local sim card and was able to communicate with the PGS support, Eugene. He was very prompt even at 1.30 am and we were finally picked up. The driver did not comment or say anything. I would have given 5 star otherwise.
★★☆☆☆ Mar 24, 2016 (charter Van 9pax, PGS) :
He (the driver) left us 300 meters away the hotel destination at 40 degrees and with baggage. He said he can't pass into the road. False, everyday we took taxi from the hotel door. We also wait one hour in airport after flying.
