Suvarnabhumi Airport Overnight

    During my trip in December/January, I unfortunately have two times where I will arrive in BKK around 2300, and have a flight out (one to PP, one to Koh Samui) around 700 the next morning.

    I know the airport has day-rooms for hire, but these appear to be approx. USD50-100 for a few hours use (which is honestly quite ridiculous).

    Does anyone have any suggestions?
    Are food outlets/shops etc open overnight?

    Thanks

    I spent the night in that airport last March, yes food, limited chairs to sleep on, cold (swipe a blanket from the plane a pillow is handy too), I sugest getting a pedicure and a massage - an hour massage is cheaper than the dayroom rate per hour.

    One thing to consider is that the day rooms are only in the international departure area, so depending on where you are arriving from/departing to then you may have to spend the night in the main terminal while you wait to check in.

    You may stay overnight in budget hotle around airport .Cost only 28-30 USd/night .Try queen's garden hotel . Hotel just next to airport and free transfer service .

    or you can sleep at airport .

    Are food outlets/shops etc open overnight?
    -Yes some shop open 24 hrs.(Minimart)
    You can find thing to eat easy.

    In June 2007, we also spent two nights in Suvarnabhumi Airport. The airport is really safe, with lots of police presence. We took a blanket and pillow from the plane and were easily able to sleep, esp as the seats do not have arm rests in between, so it's poss to lie down! You will have no probs finding something to eat - there is the 24hr Minimart and the food cafes close late and open late. You will find that many travelers stay overnight in the airport.

    I have slept there with no problems (a few places stay open), but why not grab a taxi into town and get some grub and then come back, cheap and enjoyable. Places in town are open 24 hours and the food is great. Wouldn't cost you too much (200 B each way for taxi, 25/30 Baht for food)

    Thanks for all the suggestions.

    Goo - I suppose one thing stopping that idea is that I wouldn't want to be roaming around Bangkok at 2-3am carrying all my luggage around.

    Yun,

    Slap it in the left luggage for a few hours, I am serious about the suggestion, that time of night there is a lot open and places to go.

    I have same issue. I arrive late in the evening and depart early in the morning. So I booked Queen's Garden Resort which located near airport. 850 THB/night ($25).
    Complimentary transfer from Suvarnabhumi airport 24hrs.

    How many hours do you ACTUALLY think you will be waiting for ?

    Arrive at 23.00 if your lucky . Possible queues at immigration , plus waiting time for your luggage (45 minutes for me last time) .

    Then what , check in two hours before your 7.00am flight ?

    Might be less time than you think ?

    I have a flight out of BKK at 8am, is it worth it to stay in a guesthouse near the airport the night before or should I just stay in downtown bangkok, likely on Ko San road?

    PS, I get in on a friday night (late), then leave sunday morning at 8am to Phuket, perhaps I should even stay out at the airport both nights?

    Hey Shore,

    Given your situation, I might choose to stay out near the airport for both nights too. That way you won't have to hassle with long trips into town with your pack/luggage. Plus, that will leave Saturday open for a day trip into Bangkok.

    I just checked out the Queens Garden Resort CyberVlad recommended in this post and it looks pretty good for the money and location. Free RT transfer to/from the aiport is a major bonus too. I'll probably stay there on my next trip through. If you stay there on your trip, let us know what you think. Cheers.

    One thing worth considering is that traffic should'nt be a problem at the times you would be travelling .
