    Hi everyone!!!
    I need a help about the flight from Puket to Bangkok.
    I ve found a cheaper fly from Puket to the local airport in Bangkok (no the Suriv international). Is the local airport well realted with the city?! are there buses to go to he center around 21pm?!
    I don't know if it is better to spend a little bit more but arrive easily in Bangkok center.
    I don't really want to waste my time on transport!
    Thanks a lot guys!!

    When you say "local airport" I assume you are talking about Don Mueang, which is the old international airport. And when you say "suriv international" I assume you mean Suvarnabhumi international - the new airport. Bangkok is a huge, sprawling city. suvarnabhumi is located about 10 Km due east of what I would describe as the "city center", around Pathum Wan. Don Mueang is about 10 klicks north of same. So the question is really where are you going after you get off the plane and how far is the airport in question from where you are going? Generally speaking, I prefer flying into Don Mueang all other things being equal, so if it's cheaper, then for me that's a definite.

    yes you are right, I meant Don Mueang airport. I am going to arrive at the airport around 8 pm-10 pm on the 7th of january and then go to an hotel in the city center in order to be ready for the day after to visit the city. I have just one day to spend in Bkk (night of 7th and 8th of january) because the 8th january around 8 pm I have to move to the Suvarnabhumi airport to catch a flight home at 1 am.
    So do u confirm your suggestion?! thank you a lottt!!!!

    Where is the hotel? Not that it matters that much. Unless your hotel is just outside of the international airport or west of that - then it doesn't matter much and you should take the cheaper flight.

    Don Mueang is fine for sure. I'm not a fan of Koh San... but to each his own.
