    Don Muang to Suvarnabhumi

    I have a friend coming into Don Muang via AirAsia in November. He
    s coming to visit me in Pattaya so I want him to go to Gate 8 in Suv. He isn't eligible for the shuttle, because he doesn't have an E-ticket leaving from Suv. the same day.
    I understand the only practical choices he has are to take a taxi(cost?) or Bus 555. Any suggestions?

    30 mins at the right time in a cab. 100 or less motorway tolls.
    driver pay at will..

    Check air asia, they may be providing a shuttle as they must assume some responsibility for the changing of airports. Taxi would be the best if that does not work out.

    found this.


    8. Will AirAsia be assisting guests in transferring between Suvarnabhumi and Don Mueang airports?

    We are pleased to announce that we have been working with Airports of Thailand to offer free shuttle busses for guests to transfer between the two airports. We will notify you of the running schedule of this free shuttle.

    There are other options if you so wish, refer to
    http://www.bangkokairportonline.com/node/56

    for more information on Bus Number 554 from Suvarnabhumi Airport to Don Mueang Airport. This service is provided from the Suvarnabhumi Bus Terminal at the Transport Center.

    the key is the word "transferring". as noted in the op, there is no transfer at Swampy, it seems just to be an easier place to do the pick up.

    just do the taxi... easy and not that expensive.

    New thought pick him up at DM, its longer yes, but it saves him a lot of hassle. Air Asia is in Terminal 1. Gates 1, 2, 3, and 4. Longer for you yes. But easier for him.

    Which is easier? I would go pick up my friend. I live right next to DM airport, yet I drive to Swampy to pick up friends on their first time in.

    Glad to see you are so helpful. 30 minutes more for the driver, but a shit load longer for the friend coming in.

    Glad you are not my friend.

    Defeats the purpose of meeting him if he has to jump thru hoops to meet you. Dumb ideas here.

    Why doesn't your friend simply get a taxi from DM to Patters ? He is going to be sat in your car all the way there so sitting in a taxi is no different and saves you the drive and the hassle. Offer to pay. you are going to use what it costs in a taxi in gas getting there and back.
    This method falls at the first though if your friend is a tight arsed cheap Charlie or on the bones of his arse ?
    Treat everyone as a complete and utter idiot and you can only ever be pleasantly surprised !

    I've just done that journey by bus! Cost 350 baht from DM airport to Pattaya in an air condition bus. On arrival at Pattaya bus station you are taken in a minivan to your hotel, which is included in price. Took just under 2 hours! The company is Belltravelservice.com. You book online and pay when you turn up to board bus.

    so the answer is tell him to get the bus to Pattaya and you can meet him at the bus station

    Well, my family condo in BKK is a 20 minute drive from Don Muang. Now whenever we fly to BKK, we have to take a taxi from Suvarnabhumi and it always costs close to 400 baht. That works out to 8 GBP or $13 US. If you whinge and moan over this small amount for a long ride don't bother going to Thailand.
