These days you can get to Suvarnabhumi Airport from downtown Bangkok in quick time thanks to the Airport Rail Link (ARL), a rapid train ride on elevated tracks 28 kilometres long. It can deliver you there in 30 minutes, or even half that time. For commuters, here are some vital tips.
The ARL comprises a City Line and Express Line. The City Line spans Phaya Thai district in the heart of Bangkok and Suvarnabhumi. With stops on the route, it connects the two points in 30 minutes, while the Express Line operates non-stop between neighbouring Makkasan to the airport, covering the distance in only 15 minutes. Both the lines operate 6am to midnight.
