Arriving in Bangkok

Two airports serve the city of Bangkok, and these are: Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK) and Don Mueang International Airport (DMK). However, if you are flying from Cairns, it is almost certain you will fly into Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport. This is a larger facility, with more features, though you’ll find that both airports provide access to bureau de change services, ATMs, free WiFi, as well as an excellent selection of cafés, coffee houses, Thai restaurants, and international eateries. There is a good selection of duty-free outlets too, pharmacies, and medical services.

One main terminal makes up Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport, so you will not need to transfer here. Whilst Don Mueang International Airport has two terminals linked via a shuttle service.

If you take a taxi from either airport, you will need to be prepared for it to take 30-90 minutes, though the fare is usually reasonable—often between 300-500THB ($11-19). If you don’t want to take public transportation, but don’t want to pay taxi prices either, then book an airport transfer online.

Book a car online and in advance for the best priced deals, or approach one of the agencies in the arrivals section of both airports.
