How do I get to Bangkok?

Bangkok has two airports. All long-haul flights land at Suvarnabhumi Airport. There is also Don Mueang Airport, from which low-cost airlines in particular take off to various destinations in Southeast Asia.

How do I get from A to B in Bangkok?

Getting around in Bangkok is indeed a challenge at times. With the car you are always stuck in traffic jams. This is sometimes so bad that taxi drivers don't even go to some districts of the city at certain peak times.

Local public transport in Bangkok has been expanding steadily in recent years. There is the Skytrain (BTS), the Metro (MRT) and the Bangkok Airport Link (SARL), with which you can get from the airport to the city for around 3.50 euros.

Another important means of transport in Bangkok is the ferry on the Chao Phraya River, which is a great way to avoid traffic jams. In addition, many small canals run through Bangkok, which are also used by water taxis.

In Bangkok you pay with Thai baht. 1 euro is about 40 baht.
