Bus vanaf Suvarnabhumi Airport naar treinroute richting Camodja

Posted by herold on 3/12/2006 at 22:07

Weet iemand of er vanaf Suvarnabhumi Airport ook bussen gaan richting plaatsen waar de 3e klas trein naar Cambodja stopt.
bv. Lat Krabang, Pra Chom Klao of Chachoengsao. Dan hoeven we niet eerst naar Bangkok terug, en de volgende ochtend niet zo achterlijk vroeg op. De trein vertrekt nl om 5.55 vanaf Hualalumpong Station, en is bv. pas om 7:50 in Chachoengsao.
Helaas zijn dit geen kennelijk geen standaard backpacker routes en er is sowieso nog weinig te vinden over transport vanaf het nieuwe vliegveld anders dan naar Bangkok. Wie kan ons helpen?

Hi herold,

Welcome to Travelfish!

That's dutch right? I've put it through an auto-translator thing and if I guess right, you're asking if you fly into Suvanabhumi can you jump on a train heading out to Cambodia without going into Bangkok...

If that is what you're asking, then the answer is yes -- sort of. There's a couple of train stations close-ish to the airport, eg Khlong Tan, but to be honest you'll be better served just to head into Hualamphong and get the train from there.

Of course, if that isn't what you're asking, or if the above is in German rather than dutch, then perhaps if you could gimme a rough idea of what you're asking in English, I'll try to answer!

Hi there,
it´s Dutch alright and yes I´m looking for a bus from Suvanabhumi airport to Lat Krabang, Pra Chom Klao or better Chachoengsao. We want to take the third class train to Cambodja which stops at those places according to the timetable. It leaves Hualalumphong station at 5.55 in the morning and at 7.50 from Chachoengsao (that´s a much better time). So that seemes a better choiche. I don´t particularly want to go to Bangkok again.
I found busses nr. 76 en 9910 go to Chachoengsao from the airport, but I haven´t been able to find a timetable. Guesthouses in Chachoengsao are also not easy to find on the internet.
So if you have some usefull information, it will be more than welcome.
Els

Hi Els,

In Chachoengsao there's a couple of cheap hotels in the centre of town, near the river -- nothing flash, but they're adequate for a layover.

Buses from the airport to Chachoengsao - I can't help with the timetable, but I'd assume they'd be semi-regular - every hour or so -- if they were less frequent than that, it would be quicker to head back into Bangkok Ekamai bus station and catch the bus from there.
