01-24-2011, 11:13 AM
You can conveniently travel from Suvarnabhumi airport to downtown Bangkok using the Suvarnabhumi Airport Express (SA Express Line). This is the new system that has just been opened in 2010.

This line provides transportation service between Bangkok City Air Terminal (BCAT) from Makkasan to Suvarnabhumi Airport within 15 minutes, which stops only at Makkasan Station (original terminal) and Suvarnabhumi Station (end terminal).

There are total of 4 trains providing services in SA Express. Each train has 3 passenger cars, which have 170 passenger seats, and 1 baggage car that makes up altogether 4 cars. It provides service from 06.00 to 24.00 everyday.

The train leaves every 15 minutes. So there's no wait.

What is near beach with cheap hotels from Suvarnabhumi airport ?

03-14-2011, 01:33 PM
Luckily Suvarnabhumi Airport is on the east of Bangkok and it's close to the beach destination on the east of Thailand. The nearest beach would be Bang San where you can find many budget hotels. From Bang San, you can go further to Pattaya and find many tourist attractions including all kinds of hotels from cheap to expensive.

Yes CL2, you are right, in bang San there are some budget hotels which are providing quality services and will let you enjoy your good time.

I would rather recommend you to visit Pattaya Beach which will be more of tourist attraction area like Coral Island (which you have to take boat for about 1 hr to reach from Pattaya beach), Believe it or Not museum, Nongnoouch village, floating market etc. You will be able to enjoy more..

The much-awaited Airport Rail Link (06:00-midnight) that connects downtown Bangkok with Suvarnabhumi International Airport is a smart alternative to the airport’s express buses or taxis. The two SA Express routes can get you to the airport (or downtown) in 15-18 minutes, so rest assured that you will make it to the boarding gate right on time. The City Line makes six stops between downtown (Phayathai Station) and the airport, completing each run in 30 minutes, which is also a great option for those with little luggage and who are not in a rush.
