3 EASY STEPS! to get to Bangkok city from airport by “skytrain” : the FASTEST way


this article is the guideline to get to downtown from suvarnabhumi airport, bangkok by skytrain.


1.Go to the B floor 


after you take a baggage claim, you’ll walk into the main hall. Then you’ll see a sign.

4th Fl is departure flight

3rd Fl is shop, restaurant, car park

2nd Fl is baggage claim

1st Fl is Public transport

B Fl is Airport rail link


you can go to B Fl by escalator or elevator.


at the B fl, it has restaurants, pocket wifi shop for rent, and money exchange.

It is convenient for visitor.


2. walk into ARL station


at the B Fl, you’ll see the sign showing the way to Airport rail link [ARL]

and then you must buy a ticket by Ticket Vending Machine, but it can’t receive 500 and 1000 THB banknote. the another way to solve this problem is go to the counter and buy a ticket.
