Get a Suitable Transport Upon Arrival in Flights to Bangkokby Amanda Sutcliffe Travel Deals
The biggest airport in Thailand, the Suvarnabhumi International Airport is equipped with excellent facilities and serves passengers and flights heading to various corners of the world. The bright and airy departure halls of the airport always delight the passengers, as they can take some amazing Instagram-worthy snaps in the awe-inspiring surroundings of its uniquely designed interiors. Every year, more than 50 million passengers travel through this airport and is a major hub of Southeast Asia for air travel. Although this airport is located 16 miles outside the town, it gives passengers the necessary convenience in getting to the Bangkok city centre with the help of public and private transport modes.
After arriving in any of the flights to Bangkok, you can get to the first floor by taking an elevator from the arrival hall located on the second floor. The taxi stands at the Entry Gate have designated booths where you'll have to queue up and convey the name of your final destination to the booth officer. You'd be escorted by the taxi driver to the vehicle a few moments later. It must be kept in mind that you'll have to pay the driver a courtesy fee and toll fees in addition to the final taxi fare. The services of metred taxis are available for 24 hours.
If you're looking for a more comfortable ride, consider hiring an airport limousine. While you're at the arrival hall, you can go to the nearest service counter on the same floor and make your choice from the vehicles available. The rates may vary depending on the kind of vehicle you've chosen and the total distance from the airport to your destination. They are usually higher than the rates of the metred taxis. However, you can enjoy a first-class ride in an airport limousine and it would almost feel like being treated like a celebrity. This service is also available 24 hours daily.
For those who have some time to spare and don't mind a few hassles for a cheaper ride from the airport, public buses would be the best choice. They are the cheapest mode of transport to reach downtown. Once you're outside the arrival hall, move to the Airport Shuttle Service stand where you'll get the express shuttle. It takes you to the Public Transport Centre from where you can choose your bus for one of the available routes. The rate would depend upon the distance. Each of these buses makes about 6 to 8 stops along the way.
One of the other options available in public transport is Public Van, which has few stops and makes your ride more comfortable. You have to first take the express airport shuttle to the Public Transport Centre and then choose from the available routes. Most of the routes do not operate 24 hours daily. If you're heading to one of the destinations of the Airport Express Bus, you can go with it instead of the Public Van. The Airport Express Bus service runs from 5:00 in the morning until midnight.
