Hua Lamphong train station to Suvarnabhumi airport?

Posted by Emma23 on 23/5/2012 at 05:44

Hello,

I'm getting rather frustrated trawling the web for answers to here's to all you experts out there! I have a flight out of Bangkok at 01:30 on August 21st, if I leave Ayutthaya at 18:53 and get into Hua Lamphang train station at 20:25 does that give me much time or am I cutting it a bit fine? Enough time in Europe but in Thailand!!
Simple question I know but how can I get from the train station (Hua Lamphang) to the international airport? From what i can see it's not on the skyrail link?? How far is the airport from the train station? Help appreciated please.

Thank you

It is possible to take the Metro to connect to the rail link. Take the subway from Hualomphong to Petchaburi and than walk to Makkasan Station of the Skyrail.

See route map here.

You can also take a cab as there is an entry to the expressway near Hualomphong.

It also seems to be possible to get off at Bang Sue Train station instead of Hualomphong. See here:

See the BTS map above to help guide you.

Five hours should be plenty, and it's not too difficult. Use MRT/BTS/Airport Link as shown in goonistik's post (there are a few ways to do it), or if you don't want the hassle of changing train lines just hop in a taxi and say "suvarnabhumi". A taxi will run about 250 to 300 baht, and you'll probably have to pay 50 to 100 baht in tolls along the way. Trains will cost a little under 100 baht total.
