Airport buses cost Bt.150 and take just over an hour to get into the city.

The Skytrain does not yet connect to the airport; the line is scheduled to be completed in 2009. During periods of heavy traffic it can be advantageous to take the Skytrain to On Nut and catch a taxi from there.

Taxi service

The meter fare for a taxi ride between the airport and the city is about THB200. Taking the taxi from the airport will incur an additional THB50 fee. Under optimal conditions it can be as fast as 20 minutes; during the day it's best to plan on an hour.

There is a large number of international ATMs on the arrivals level after exiting customs.

Internet access

Free wireless in the Thai Airways Royal Silk lounge. Not sure if it can be reached from outside the lounge.

The airport authority has been attempting to provide wireless internet access throughought the facility, but as of early 2008 this service is still not functional.

Of a number of years now at almost each arrival and departure at Suvarnabhumi, there are incredibly long immigration lines. This when often only around 50% of the booths are manned. This is your "Front Door" and given that Tourism is a big part of Thailand's economy, it does give a bad impression.

Louise at the head of this queue asked about lost and found. There is no system. I lost my wallet and was batted back and forth between simpering young women and a useless young man. No forms, no police statements and I need them to replace licences and cards.
Now I want to send a message to Thai airports Authority and do you think there is any contact info...?

In transit from Manila to Brussels I had the bitter surprise upon arrival in Brussesl that my lock with code had been destroyed and my luggage left open and two gifts for relatives stolen, which was only possible when the luggage was scanned before loading. I suspect that this happened when loading luggage in Bangkok Airport for Brussels.
The airport should check those facts which harm its reputation and the one of Thai Airways. I will avoid the place from now on.

Swampy goes from bad to worse. None of the problems have been fixed... the mysterious vanishing toilets, useless internet, mile-long immigration queues... and now it's so packed to bursting there's nowhere to sit down and you spend all your time dodging carts in the narrow corridors. Cannot believe this was the best Thailand had to offer. Oh well, maybe in another 20 years when they build the next one, they'll get it right.

Its a fairly new airport,opened during Sept 2006. I had landed in this airport on the 2 day of its opening & also used it during the 2nd week of its opening,its quite a big airport but very passanger friendly,information about your flight & check in desk is easily available as you enter the airport & your check in counter is easily traceable.The duty free shopping is good.The airport is well maintained.Facilities available in the airport is good.
[3 stars]A Dol (New York) - March 9, 2008
The airport is still under construction, but it is beautiful. I agree the passport service is slow, but no one bats an eye if you go through the diplomat line or the Thai Passport line (as I did) In my experience the lines are much worse during the day and night, so book a morning flight out to be safe if you can. I think it is strange to have to walk so far past empty gates, but I think it must have something to do with the construction and the fact that it is still a new airport, give it time. If it is still like this in a year I will downgrade my rating to 2 stars.

Like the other people said, give yourself a lot of time because the immigration process at this airport is abysmally slow. It would be easy to miss a flight even if you checked in on time. Leaving Bangkok yesterday we had to wait half an hour even though there were just 8 people ahead of us in the queue. And all the other queues moved just as slowly. I don't know what those people are doing while they frown and peck at their computers, but they are not very good at it.

Waited over one hour to have my passport stamped! And the officer was so rude.
[1 stars]Edwin Lim (Singapore) - January 9, 2008
Why do we have to walk so far?? I think the walk from passport stamp to the departure gate was farther than the flight itself. I have never been to an airport where I had to walk so far. And all the gates I passed by were empty, so there was no reason to use one so far away. Same experience happened on arrival.
