From Don Muang Airport to Bangkok city

Hi everyone

What is the cheapest and quickest way to get from Don Muang Airport to bangkok city?

I saw some forum suggested that from Don Muang Airport can take the State Railway train, the railway train will stops at the Hualampong. From there can walk to the MRT, is that true? How it work?

Thanks

Hi,

You can take the train from the airport to Hualamphong and from there the MRT (underground/subway). While it won't cost you much money it will cost you a lot in time. Aside from the travel time do bear in mind the wait for the train !

Please state where you are staying in the city since there may be better alternatives.

All trains coming from the north or northeast do indeed stop at Don Muang before heading into the city centre. And the fare is very low, something like 7 baht. But as Andy points out, they're VERY slow, irregular, and liable to be hours late. The station is across a walkway from the airport.

One possible strategy for using the train is to forget the published schedule. Just take the first train that comes, whatever kind of train it is. And get off at Bang Sue which is the head of the MRT line. The MRT is easily accessible by a tunnel. That would save you considerable time compared to staying on the train as it plods through the city centre. ALL trains from all directions except east stop at Bang Sue. Somewhen it will become the main train station.

Forget about the State Railway trains -- they're for inter-city slow travel. Walk out to the bus stop on the main road and wait for a bus. Many go into the inner city from here. Explain to an airport staff where you're going and ask for the bus number. That's the cheapest way. Many buses also pass by the terminal station of the skytrain, called Morchit station. This place is roughly mid-way between Don Mueang and the inner sity. Stopping here and changing to the skytrain is a good way to avoid the horrendous traffic jams in the inner city.

Taxi: about 300 baht.

Or take the A1 bus from outside the terminal to Mo Chit BTS station and then take the Skytrain directly to Siam.
