Departs directly from the exit of the terminal. The route passes through important stop to Victory Monument, Democracy monument, a little passes through the area of Khao San road and ends up next to him at the final stop near the monument to World War 1 Monument. If you need to reach the airport from this neighborhood and you don't know where exactly is the route, it is best to go from World War 1 Monument (stop on the map) to reach there on foot from Khao San road within 5 to 10 minutes.

  • City bus No. 59. It is a regular city bus that makes a huge number of stops on the way, so there is a much longer – 2 hours or more. Run around the clock. But the bus not from the arrivals terminal and stops at regular city bus stop on the main highway that runs along the airport. Exit the terminal and walk to the left and get to the stop signs Bus Stop, it is very close. Here with other Thais wait for the bus, it will pass.

    But keep in mind that not all the bus no. 59 to finish the route in Khao San. There is a special additional buses on a limited route, i.e. they do not go to the end. You can recognize it by the red sign on the windshield, where it is stated in the Thai language, to stop what they follow. Also check with the bus conductor or driver.

    Through the Khaosan area, this route does not pass, but makes a stop near the Democracy Monument and ends up at a final stop near the monument to World War 1 Monument. From both stops to hotels in the area at hand.

Marina, take a boat ride and reach the Temple of dawn - all the same different things.
If you just want to Church to get, you need to get to the pier and take a ferry. And if you want it on the boat ride, I understand you just interested in a regular boat and not a cruise, it is another. But IMHO, ride the Shuttle boat - a dubious pleasure, especially during rush hour. It is still a vehicle, do not think that you are there to see. In principle, about how to get there here we have written in detail -
But, nevertheless, here's the layout:
If you just ferry to cross, then I would chose the option to fully get across the water, but will have a little walk, but the city view, if you have not seen. Actually for me I Bangkok love that only would do so, I mean, more walk walked. In short, from the hotel along the Mall, Indra Square exit on the main street of Ratchaprarop and turn left. Walk to the canal pier to Pratunam. There on the boat get to the end of Phan Fa, is near temple of the Golden mount. And from there on foot through the whole district to the pier, Tha Tien, from where we ferried to the other side. We heard that Tha Tien like closed for renovations, but there is so nearby pier ferries run, on the spot will understand. Of course to go far, but a lot of things along the way will see, there is after all the most interesting places, maybe some temples along the way to visit.
When we did not want to walk a lot, then you can take the subway to the Marina to get with transfers. First on the airport metro two stops to Makkasan, and there on the subway and transfer to Sanam Chai. Sanam Chai is a new station according to the map, I'm there ...

If Suvarnabhumi, then most likely sit in the airport on the metro ARL to the end, and there ride the BTS to Siam station. It's faster than a taxi to go. ...
