Hi,

From Suvarnabhumi airport a taxi will be the most convenient mode of transport. Otherwise, you could take the Airport Rail Link to Makkasan station and from there the 556 bus.

I think bus no. 556 goes from Suvarnabhumi to the Bus terminal - is that correct experts?

Otherwise, Taxi is good, and it should take about 45 mins - 1 hour depending on traffic

Hi,

Do be aware that you may have to wait up to 45 minutes for a 556 bus.

Do 556 BUS operate 24/7? Because i arrive to BKK at 11:30pm and have a flight with Air Asia at 7:30 at DMK? Is is possible to take a bus at night? And safety?

Hi Chau C,

I don't know the operating times of the 556 but since you arrive at Suvarnabhumi and you depart from Don Muang your best bet is to take a taxi. The 556 doesn't go anywhere near Don Muang.

There is a bus which goes between both airports but I don't have the schedule at hand. Perhaps someone can mention the times or even better start a new post.

Taxi is the best bet as mentioned.

The shuttle bus between Suvarnabhumi and DMK runs between 5 a.m - 12 midnight the last time I checked.

The 556 starts at 4.00am and finishes at 10.00pm.

The 555 goes between the airports, just get the free bus to the airport transport centre.

Those are really awkward times you have there. Maybe have something to eat at BKK, and then head over to DMK by taxi. This will split your time waiting, and be aware that facilities at DMK are limited.

I arrive at 18:15 to Bangkok Aiprort. Do you think i can reach the bus going to Ko Samui at 20:00 from the southern bus terminal?
