Airports in Bangkok
Bangkok is being served by two airports: Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK) and Don Mueang Airport (DMK). Direct flights from Israel, as well as the connecting flights we’ve mentioned, arrive at Suvarnabhumi Airport. If you are by a connection from Singapore or Ho Chi Minh City, you are likely to arrive at DMK.
Although the English spelling is Suvarnabhumi and the Hebrew one is סוברנבהומי, the correct way to pronounce it is “soo-wanna-poom” - סו-וואנה-פום. It’s extra important to know that if you expect your taxi driver to take you to the right place. Thailand's busiest airport is also Asia's sixth busiest, and the world's 20th busiest.
If you continue to Ko Samui, you can choose between more than 20 daily flights on this route, or take a bus or train to other islands. If your destination is Bangkok City, there are several train and bus services, and also shared or private shuttle for a very affordable fee.
The most comfortable way to reach Bangkok City is by shared or private shuttle for a very reasonable price or by taxi. It takes about half an hour to get into the city. If you are an explorer and knows how to navigate in unknown places, take the Airport Rail Link, which is cheaper and faster. The city’s great BTS Sky Train system is connected to the airport by the non-stop Express Line and the City Line, which is slightly slower. There are of course public buses, but it can take two hours to commute in the heavy traffic of Bangkok.
DMK used to be BKK and Bangkok’s main airport. Now it is the world’s largest hub for low-cost airlines. THere are trains from the nearby station and they will bring you to the city in one hour. This is the cheapest way to travel into the city, but only if you are patient enough for delays and being completely off schedule. Metered taxis are the most efficient way to reach Bangkok.
