Travelling betwen the two airports in bangkok


Need some help please

I am arriving at Suvarnabhumi Airport at 18:50 but need to catch a domestic flight at Don Mueang International Airport at 21:20. I have never traveled before.

How long will it take to be able to exit the one airport/get a cab drive to the other airport and checkin on time?

A similar question has been answered before with a very thorough breakdown of the needed steps tripadvisor.com/…47039736 Based on that you would be at Don Mueang exactly when Air Asia baggage drop closes if you buy in advance the Fast Track immigration service.

Right now you have no schedule buffer against the incoming flight running late, getting Thai baht at the airport for the taxi, being in any way confused as a 1st time traveler, or anything else.

You are clearly flying with separate tickets, so the airline departing from Don Mueang has no obligations if you show up too late - you lose your ticket. I would rebook to a later flight even if that means staying overnight in Bangkok.
