    Don Mueng Airport vs Suvarnabhumi??

    A couple of issues to highlight. The visa on arrival has a longer queue most of the time in BKk. In DMK it's less most of the time. So if you don't need visa DMK is better as the immigration queue is a lot less on arrival. The taxis queue is of course a lot longer in DMK. At BKK you just walk and there is a taxi available. On departures of course it's a mess in DMK. BKK is much smoother at check in and immigration and of course the departure lounges. The taxis from Nana at a fixed price is 400 to 450 to both airports.

    There is a bus running from Don Muang Airport to Mo Chit BTS stop or Victory square. Take BTS to Nana. Taxi around 250 Bahts.

    Maybe next time you can also consider to fly from Chiang Mai straight to Pattaya. Air Asia flies twice a day.

    Don Mueng Airport vs Suvarnabhumi??

    I've flown in and out of DM quite a few times. If you arrive in the evening (9 PM onwards) you can often get through customs there super quick. However, during the day Chinese tourist planes seem to land in big numbers and it can be slow. Agree with the earlier tip about going up to Departures to grab a taxi. At night the taxi ride into Sukhimvit is super quick. 20 minutes to Nana. During the day it's one hour or more. However, it's true that if you are going straight to Pattaya rather than downtown Bangkok it will add another hour to your trip. If you want to catch a bus to Pattaya from DM airport then you can get the A1/2 bus to Mo Chit, then a very short taxi ride to the Northern Bus Terminal where there are regular buses leaving for Pattaya.

    Don Mueng Airport vs Suvarnabhumi??

    I arrived into Don Mung airport 2 days ago after a lovely 4 day side trip to Chiangmai. I was met on arrival by my usual taxi driver but it took almost an hour extra to drive to Pattaya. So basically if you have the choice and want to get to Pattaya quicker then I would choose Suvarnabhumi. As an aside, i loved the laid back vibe in Chiangmai, sorry I did not book to stay there longer. i will the next time. I took some company with me from Pattaya. Daytripper

    There's a bus (A1) outside Arrivals that takes the expressway and drops off at Mo Chit BTS for 30 baht and also be used in reverse for Mo Chit to the Airport. Depends on how much luggage you're bringing I guess. I've used it loads of times for domestic flights but usually that means just a rucksack and a cabin sized case. There's also the less frequent A2 bus which stops at Mo Chit but also at Victory Monument, a good few stops closer to Nana. I reckon you won't save much time as it drops off at Mo Chit then most of the other BTS stops between Mo Chit and Victory Monument.

    Nana is fine, but Pattaya can be a nightmare when it's busy, can take an hour+ just to get to Suvarnabhumi

    imho Suvarnabhumi is more convinient from Nana taking BTS to PhayaThai and then the MRT Airport Link. Total costs less than 100baht, takes about 1hour without the risk of traffic jam. To DMK you use BTS to MoChit and then look for a taxi or a Bus. Sent from my ASUS_Z017DA using Tapatalk

    DM is closer to Nana, it can be very convenient and quicker than Suvarnabhumi if the traffic is light, but no train yet. (The Skytrain is being extended to DM which will make it extremely convenient) But it's a bit inefficient and if you are there when Chinese hoardes arrive then it can be slow going through immigration. Avoid the taxi queues downstairs and head up to Departures and grab one that has just dropped people off. If the fares are much cheaper than DM is worth it.

    I used DM as my entry and exit point last trip. It's a long way from Sukhumvit and I'm not sure what the bus options are. I think from memory the taxi fare was somewhere between 200-300. Leaving I couldn't even find a taxi on Sukhumvit and had to ride on the back of a bike with luggage to DM... It was a nightmare, never again!

    flying from where?
  15. As many times as I've flown into Bkk and landed at Suvarnabhumi, I found a lower fare into DM and was wondering if anyone of you have done that.... and specifically, how is it getting into the Nana area Taxi/Uber wise?? Is it any closer or more convenient? Thanks for the input. Kap

    Direct Flight v Stop Over

    Direct flight via EVA from Heathrow is my most common choice. Book 7 - 10 months in advance and never payed more than £600. Only time of the year I fly indirect is at Christmas generally to save £300 - £400. Done a fair few stopovers Dubai, Beijing, Mumbai, Delhi, Frankfurt, Helsinki, Vienna, Athens & Amman to name a few. The worst stopovers being Beijing (ignorant fuckers) and Mumbai (Indians with too much hand luggage causing chaos).

    Direct Flight v Stop Over

    Have flown with Eva about 10 times, Thai 4, BA once all direct from London Emirates many from Birmingham & Stanstead Qatar from london twice KLM and Lufthansa from Birmingham Have a silver card with Emirates so like about 3 hours at Dubai in the Business lounge, also usually get offer of an upgrade at reasonable price. I pay for a flexi type ticket to get the extra points and get a good selection of seats But much prefer direct. I cannot sleep well on planes. So like to take a couple of sleeping tablets and hope to get 4/5 hours on the direct, not so easy with Emirates as it is 7.5 hours to Dubai and 6.5 hours to BKK. At Dubai there is the hassle of going through security again and a long and agroed walk to change terminals, nearly always going down to the train and up to the plane, generally 20 mins if u lucky, longer if you do not rush Seems the London direct flight are very competitive at the moment and parking at Heathrow only £10 more than the regional airports As I am not coming to Thailand 4/5 times a year now, would think direct is the best Best Airline Service for me was Qatar - Eva - Emirates -KLM - Thai - BA -Lufthansa hope I will be fit to get back again in due course

    Direct Flight v Stop Over

    I used several airlines Heathrow to Bangkok over the years Ethiad Oman Qatar and some I can't remember, Evaair is easily the best for me except the flight times are a bit inconvenient, flying out this month £503 return economy, Ethiads the best for me of the non direct if i can find flight with short stopover and convenient flight times. I don't enjoy flying much anymore so the sooner its all over the better

    The big breakfasts at Smokin Joes on Soi Lengkee are quite good. Pricier than most, big portions 295 baht but high quality. Come with fresh squeeze orange juice and choice coffee or tea. Actual pics of their Great American and Great English breakfasts.
