Reviewed May 4, 2014

What's not to like? A taxi trip to my hotel took over an hour and cost 400 baht with the airport surcharge and tolls. The airport sky train was about 60 baht and took around 45 minutes.

There were demonstrations and riots during my Bangkok stay. Demonstrators closed roads and interchanges which make traffic even worse that it typically is in Bangkok. The sky train helped you by pass all of that congestion.

Is it easy? Well sorta. I'm not intuitive about mass transit. Several people had to help me on my journey but they did. Just look confused and someone is bound to help you. If not pull out a map and lint to where you want to go and even if they don't speak English they will help you or find someone who can. That's been my experience throughout Thailand.

From 06.00-24.00 the Airport Rail Link is a great way to get from Suvarnabhumi to Phaya Thai, for only 45 baht.

“fast way to get into city or the airport”
Reviewed May 3, 2014

Its a good way to travel between Bangkok city and the internationa aiport, especially if you have no luggage. You will save a lot of time as Bangkok traffic is always bad. I used it for both ways and saved a lot of time

“Time and Money savier.....”
Reviewed May 3, 2014

One of the best way to travel to and from airport. We used Rail Link service to travel from Makkasen to the airport and it’s an awesome service 15minutes and you inside the airport terminal. Whereas taxi would have taken roughly around 45min-60min depending on traffic.
The stations are clean and signboards are decent enough for one to make its way. Though it seems like it’s not fully operational.
Ticket wending machines are user friendly. The token are dispensed for the fare purchased. Frequency is excellent. Time displayed for the next arrival train is accurate.

We made the right decision not to travel by Taxi and opted for Airport Rail. Its inexpensive, save a lot of money and a lot of time!
