Since Suvarnabhumi Airport is located far from city center, using ARL is the best way to access the city since it's cheap, fast, and air conditioned. It was also integrated to MRT and BTS station.

This system is very well designed as it links the city of bangkok and the airport. Very easy to understand and very affordable. Gets crowded around mid-way but not a long trip, so it is sustainable.

Depends which part of Bangkok you are staying as to whether it is worth it if you have to change trains several times and have a fair amount of luggage. Check how many changes if any you have to make before you go

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Is the express train from Bangkok international airport to Makkasan train station operating in 2017 ? If not is it better to get the Airport Rail Link (non express) from airport to Makkasan station OR is the taxi from airport into Bangkok without undue traffic delay at 1700 - 1800 hours ? Approximate taxi fare from Makkasan station to Courtyard Marriott hotel (Ratchadamri Road)?

Hello - when you arrive into the airport how long to transfer to the domestic flight gates? Also where do I buy the ticket? Money in machines at the Station or do you need to line up to pay at a counter? Is it still 45 baht? Thank you!
