How to get to SILOM BANGKOK from Suvarnabhumi International Airport vice versa

Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi International Airport is an engineering marvel.Airport palang mapapa-Amazing Thailand kana.We in the Philippines could only wish we have an airport this good.In time I guess.

Flying in and out of Suvarnabhumi is easy.It is an aviation hub so there are so many direct and connecting flights to many destinations worldwide. To get to downtown Bangkok could be a feat though because Bangkok is a cosmopolitan city.

It really depends on where your area of destination is so for this particular post, I would like to make Silom and Khao San Road as reference points.Especially Silom coz that's where we were from prior to our flight back to Manila and in particular, Lub d Bangkok which is a hostel located in Decho Road.

There are two easy options, by taxi or by train.

By Public Taxi

Metered taxis are located at level 1 near gates 4 and 7. Be sure to look for metered taxi's.T The trip from the airport costs approximately THB 400-500 depending on traffic. Remember there is a THB 50 surcharge for travel from the airport and to have cash ready if your driver is planning to use the tollway. The total time is about 45 minutes if the traffic is not so bad. During rush hours, it takes more than an hour.

By Airport Rail Link

Follow the signs to the Airport Rail Link and buy a ticket on the city line to PhayaThai Station (terminal station). At this station you can transfer to the BTS Skytrain, where you need to purchase the appropriate fare to bring you to the Chong Nonsi Station.

Change trains at Siam Station and board the train going toward Talat Phlu. When you reach Chong Nonsi, follow the signs to exit 3. Walk until you reach Silom Road. Turn left at the Silom - Naradhiwas intersection and walk until you reach the next traffic light at Decho Road. Turn right down Decho and you will find us on the left hand side with yellow chairs in front of the building. The total travel time is about an hour and the total cost about THB 76.


Our taxi transfer from Silom to the airport cost THB 400.The driver asked for 500 Baht but we haggled.It was around 7:00 am when we left Silom so we had to take the expressway so as not to get caught in the morning rush hour traffic.We shouldered the toll fee of 50 Baht.The ride was quick and smooth.

In reference to Khao San Road, just get to Siam Station and from there, you can take the tuktuk for 140-200 THB.Taxi fare is almost the same if you insist on using the meter.There is not train station passing through Khao San so the two options are mentioned are the best way to go.

Be sure to bring your map or activate your gps when you arrive in Bangkok.That way, you will not get lost for direction should all else fail.Enjoy Bangkok!
