BKK: Bangkok - Suvarnabhumi Airport

Overview

Suvarnabhumi International Airport in Bangkok is easily one of the coolest transport hubs in the world, it really looks like it belongs in a sci-fi movie. In fact Bangkok’s international airport has such a unique design that in 2012 it became the most photographed place in the world on Instagram. Everyone wants a picture of Suvarnabhumi airport, with its long tubular corridors made from glass and steel.

Around 50 million passenger travel through Suvarnabhumi Airport every year, and as well as being the international arrival point for Thailand it is also a transfer airport for South East Asia. Bangkok international airport is located 16 miles outside town, but it is easy to get to Bangkok city centre, either via the airport link or via taxi – although be warned that traffic jams are likely during peak hours.
