Bangkok Airport Train Officially Opens Tomorrow
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.
Bangkok hoteliers and taxi drivers are keenly watching how popular the service becomes and ultimately for those with hospitality assets what impact will be felt if any on micro city locations. Certainly the BTS skytrain over the years has been partly responsible for a dynamic shift in hotel demand to the Sukhumvit/Ploenchit areas.
