  • Suvarnabhumi in the ticket note as Suvarnabhumi Airport and the abbreviation BKK
  • Don Muang is indicated on the ticket – Don Mueang Airport and the acronym DMK

Distance between Suvarnabhumi airport and don Muang is 55 kilometers, and to move from one to another or back, is usually enough for an hour and a half, but with the passing passport and customs control, receipt and delivery of baggage, the check shall be placed at least four hours or even more. After all, if the arriving flight is delayed or there are delays in passing control and visa if you need it (see about the visa in Thailand, whether it is necessary), then you will have the chance to be late for the next flight. However, you will not receive any compensation for the delay, ie will just lose the cost of the ticket because the flights are operated by different companies.

So, here are detailed instructions on how cheaper and faster way to get from one airport to another

Такси в аэропорту Суварнабхуми

A taxi between the airports is relatively inexpensive, and it's the fastest way to get. If you cannot go to a traditional taxi layout, the trip will cost you about 500 baht. Payment only in local currency, so you'll have more money to spend at the airport a few minutes on the exchange.

Taxis must be ordered at the counter, you can find in the arrivals hall (Arrival Hall). In Suvarnabhumi follow the signs "public taxi", and in don Muang is still easier to see her immediately after receiving the Luggage. Only using the taxi tincture you guarantee yourself that you will take on the "correct" price according to the meter. If you ordered from "helping" at the bar or on the street when you exit the terminal you will almost certainly "heat up" in 2000 and baht for the ride without meter.

Turn on the electronic counter, ie you must first get a ticket with a queue number. When it is your turn, the operator at the counter need to say the destination, and then you get a ticket. With this pass you have to go to the exit of the terminal, and there to pass it to the driver.

But Public Taxi ordering at the counter can also be a problem – a big turn. You can sometimes stand for the whole hour. If you are in a hurry and output remains, then you have to use the services of "help" at speculative prices. More reliable option is to order a tourist Shuttle. It's the same taxi, but more comfortable and arriving in time for the arrival of your flight. Driver with sign will meet you at the airport and you after you get your Luggage immediately will be able to go to another airport. Transfer can through the search form:

Well, here's another tip: if you are traveling alone, after passport control, divide, and while one of you will get the Luggage, the other takes a turn for a taxi.

Узнать, как купить тур в кредит

A free Shuttle bus

  • Cost: free
  • Journey time: 40 minutes
  • Period of work: 05:00 – 24:00
Бесплатный автобус между аэропортами

Between airport every 12-30 minutes from 05:00 until 24:00 free Shuttle bus (Shuttle Bus). To use them, you need to show the printout of the electronic ticket or boarding pass for a flight out of the airport on the rack. These racks are on the street when you exit the terminal at Suvarnabhumi airport at exit No. 2 and No. 3 (Gate 2, 3), don Muang immediately when you exit the terminal to the left.

The retry periods:

  • 05:00 – 08:00, 11:30 – 15:00, 19:30 – 24:00 every 30 minutes
  • 08:12 – 11:00, 15:12 – 19:00 every 12 minutes

City buses

  • Price: 35 baht
  • Travel time: 1-1. 5 hours
  • Period of work: round the clock
Автобус возле аэропорта Дон Муанг

Between airports operate two flights of buses:

  • Route 554. Around the clock, every 15 minutes
  • Route # 555. From 06:00 to 24:00 every 15 minutes

This is the official schedule, in fact they go much less frequently. Moreover, it is possible that routes may be cancelled, as other pre-existing buses from Suvarnabhumi airport, because they were simply unnecessary due to the emergence of airport metro.

These buses from Suvarnabhumi depart not from the terminal, and from the special bus station to the airport, called the Public Transportation Center. In turn, to the Public Transportation Center from the exit of the terminal on the first floor can be reached with the free airport Shuttle bus, which runs round the clock with a frequency of 2-19 minutes depending on the time of day, 10 minutes. In don Muang buses arrive at the bus-stop opposite the terminal. To get to the airport, you need to go on the crosswalk over the road.

From don Muang these buses leave from a bus stop on the highway from the terminal. You need to exit the terminal and take a few minutes to the left and you will arrive at this stop. Upon arrival at the Public Transportation Center near Suvarnabhumi you again have to use the free Shuttle-bass to get to the entrance to the terminal.

How to get from Suvarnabhumi to don Muang night

Unfortunately, the free Shuttle-buses at night not walk, so remains only two choices – taxi or city bus no. 554. But given that bus 554 may stop working or may be limited in time, it is better to count on a taxi that will cost about 500 baht. If you decide to try to ride the bus, and in Public Transportation Center at Suvarnabhumi turns out that the flights were cancelled, and from there you can go by taxi. There is also a stand for order, as in the terminal.

And don't forget at the taxi stand at airports very often there are queues, and if you have minimal time between connecting flights, it makes sense to order a taxi in advance, what can be done using the search form above.
