Map showng bangkok's two airports

Bangkok's Airports

Bangkok has two international airports called Suvarnabhumi and Don Muang which are about 45km apart. Suvarnabhumi was opened in 2006 and is where most international flights depart and arrive while the older Don Muang Airport handles mainly budget airlines who run the bulk of the domestic flights as well as short-hauls to the rest of Asia.

Connection between the two is by motorway and usually takes under an hour though delays due to traffic congestion can occur. Transport options include a bus service, a free shuttle service, limousine services and taxis.

Passengers connecting at Bangkok with other flights would be well advised to check which airports are involved so sufficient time can be allowed in their itineraries.

As well as buses and taxis, passengers travelling into downtown Bangkok  from Suvarnabhumi can use the fast rail service which connects with the MRT at Makkasin Station and the Skytrain (BTS) at Phaya Thai Station.

Staying Near Suvarnabhumi Airport

Bangkok's Main International Airport

Suvarnabhumi Airport

The area surrounding Suvarnabhumi is outside the the urban sprawl of Bangkok and, aside from the frequent sound of jets arriving and departing, is rather quiet without a lot to attract tourists so the prime reason for staying there for most people will be to rest up before catching their next flight.

Accommodation in the area is plentiful and covers all price ranges. There are many small guest houses and boutique hotels providing clean and comfortable rooms ideal for people who are just looking simply for a good night's sleep at reasonable rates. Some are actually quite removed from the airport so it would be wise to check this before booking.

Good hotels very near to Suvarnabhumi tend to be in the upper price bracket such as the Novotel which is the official airport hotel and situated right next to the main passenger terminal. Features such as a swimming pool, restaurant and room-service added to the location convenience can make a stopover a lot more pleasant for those who are prepared to pay for it.

Bearing in mind that most travellers want quick access to or from their flights, the hotel suggestions below have been chosen not only for their high customer ratings but also for being very close to the terminal.

Bangkok's Secondary Airport

Karon market stalls

For a long time Don Muang was bangkok’s only international airport and as a result still has more accommodation choice than the busier Suvarnabhumi though, as its now primarily catering to the domestic market, the hotels to be a bit cheaper.

The area surrounding Don Muang is quite a busy part of the city but does not have much that will be of interest to foreign visitors nor is it handy to the city centre so most will stay there simply for its convenience to Don Muang.
