Good Sleeping in B Terminal

by web-administrator (May, 2017)


Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest Review) Can second all the tips about B floor. Also checked out getting a lounge pass but it's cheaper to get an Airbnb room close to the airport, if you've got a long enough layover. Mine was 11:45, but opted to stay in the airport. Free luggage carts all over. I'm always bringing too much then adding to it... mealtime options can be had for 7-10.

About immigration staff & security

Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest Review by Monika, Italy) Why on time to enter Thailand, even with a visa in passport, immigration officer demand from me to show him 20000B or slip from duty free shop (with whisky or ciggaretes probably)? Who is so stupid to carry 20000B ? So you have to have with you at time to enter Thailand 20000B! And why on departure security staff took from me new powerbank and then in departure hall I so young thai man with big and more powerful powerbank ? I wonder for how much he will sell my powerbank. So on rule for farangs and others to Asians.

(Guest Review) Both of the 'airlink' express rail lines have stopped running, as of the last time (Oct 15, 2016) I was at BKK, the only line running is the local. Be aware that you may be doing a LOT of walking if your gate isn't on Concourse C!

Rude staff, airport restaurants ripping off tourists

by web-administrator (January, 2017)


Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest Review by Bhushan) I have a 3 hour transit at Suvarnbhumi Airport Bangkok for my flight to Melbourne and had severe cough for some reason. I purchased a bottle of water from EAT-TION Thai restaurant at airport and I paid by card, I was charged 361 Baht for a 600ml bottle of water by the restaurant staff, I didn't argue as I was desperately looking for water and staff was fully aware that I had cough and I desperately need water. I am wondering how low can a creature go to rip some one off and take advantage of someone's situation. Shame on them.

Luggage delivery to the airport

by web-administrator (November, 2016)


Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest Review) It was a good experience of traveling without luggage. I've never thought to use this service before. However, handling luggage around isn't easy for me and waste time. Public transport systems in Bangkok are relatively poor managed. When you transfer between stations, you have to climb several staircases and walk for a while. Besides, only few escalators or elevator are available, and not all the stations have them. You have to carry your 28' suitcase to climb to BTS station and once again after you drop. Though taxi in the city is cheap, the traffic during rush hours is HORRIBLE! It can make a 20 mins walking journey become 1.5 hrs or even worse (Dealing with taxi driver is another story). I found the service at MBK center near Siam station when I tried to deposit my luggage. The deposit service is free at MBK. Their counter at the airport is a bit remote on B floor, but the staff are very careful to make sure I understand the map. They speak good English and respond promptly on phone and Whatsapp. They can even pick up your suitcase at hotel directly. The price is flat for 350 THB to send 1 suitcase with no restriction on size and weight. Its name is Airportels and website is https://www.airportels.asia/.

austere waiting

Pros: -

(Guest Review by greg) Bangkok International Airport (Suvarnabhumi) An earthly space station Like most international hub airports, the layout resembles a space station with a central core or main terminal emitting arms where planes dock called concourses. This airport has six labelled A through G. This airport is in the world's top ten for actual space the airport at large takes up and in the top twenty for numbers of annual passengers that use the airport. It's quite a way from the city as well are most major international airports with the exception possibly of Sydney's Mascot airport. There are two features of the airport that annoy me. It's not what they dub the 'happy toilet' Asian airports compete rigorously for spotless toilets in most you could hold a picnic on the floor but rather the huge distances between concourses especially when you have two artificial knees. A mistake you make here if you are a first-time user of the airport is to get straight to your gate lounge. Now the word lounge is a misnomer. An austere row of seats awaits you in a narrow corridor. This is where you must wait until you are summoned below to the gate hold rooms, which are slightly less austere and this where you enter plane from or if you are unlucky enough to the bus that's takes you onto the tarmac. Regrettably once you enter the concourse it's a long walk and there are zero facilities for the most basic things such as availability of water or toilets. My advice make sure you use the happy toilet at the head of the concourse before you embark on the long journey to your departure gate. Halfway along you may, if you are in the right concourse, see an immense golden statue of the l continued >>

Follow The Staff.

(Guest Review by MrJHolt) A few years ago I saw people sleeping in Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK), so this visit I gave it a go and it is comfy and easy. I needed to go to the train station to buy a ticket to Trang so put my bag in left luggage 100 baht per piece for 24 hrs. Due to this I left my bag there whilst I slept, so I didn't have to worry about my luggage being stolen. However I doubt it would based on my experience. The best place by far to sleep is on the 7th floor observation platform and the reason is clear. All the staff do! I went up about 20:00 and there were a few people sat watching the aircraft and 1 person making herself comfy on a bench. I opted to go over to the far left and made myself comfy (next to the plug socket). During the night check in staff would come up lay a mat down and cover themselves up in a blanket and go to sleep. There was a patrol officer on a segway who came up every few hours but didn't move anyone and at 03:00 had a nap himself. It's also possible to sleep in the basement, in between doors 7 to 10 you'll find seats in a quiet area. I recommend getting there early though because a lot of people slept in that area, under the moving walkway is an option too. Arrivals and Departure floors I would imagine to be too noisy.

Bangkok Airport Review

by web-administrator (February, 2016)


Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest Review) I visit Bangkok regularly and have used this airport numerous times. It is a modern, very large airport and despite having moveable walkways, getting to/from departure gates takes a considerable amount of time. Be prepared for long walks. Layout/design of the arrivals hall is poor. The exit configuration was changed after the airport opened 10 years ago, but it has never worked successfully. Visitor waiting zones are crowded. Getting between floors is also confusing as some escalators have access restricted.

Bangkok Airport Review

Pros: -

(Guest Review) If you are over 60 and not fighting fit, you may collapse with eminent heart attack because distances you may have to walk may be over 1.5 kilometers. The staff who man the airport electric cars are unwilling to help even if you want to pay.

A good little night

by web-administrator (February, 2016)


Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest Review by Olaf) BKK is a big airport so its easy to find a place. There is a lot of counches. - On level 4 there is counch and bench but also a lot of people and lights. - In the international zone, there is comfortable couches next to the mosque. - I slept on level 1, under the escalators. Its the level of the airport rail link, which is close from 1 to 6 am so ther is not a lot of people here and there is less light. I slept on the floor, with a karimat and a sleeping bag (but it was not very cold). I was not alone to sleep here, but maybe the only foreigner, otherwise it was mostly people who work in the airport who take a nap here. A little problem in BKK, there is no shower.
