Bangkok Airport Train Officially Opens Tomorrow

Category: Tourism, Posted:22 Aug 2010 | 12:52 pm

The long awaiting official operating of commercial operations between Suvarnabhumi Airport and Bangkok commences tomorrow August 23.
Two types of services are available with the express train to the main Makkasan station for THB 100, and a city line comprised of 8 stops starting at Phayathai for only THB 15.
Trains run at 15 minute intervals between 6 am and midnight daily.

Certainly the BTS skytrain over the years has been partly responsible for a dynamic shift in hotel demand to the Sukhumvit/Ploenchit areas.
