does anyone have any tips / advice for how best to get from the airport into Bangkok? I hear that its a bit mad outside with tuk tuk drivers! Should I book in advance or just get someting outside?
Also, I plan to do a bit of travelling around Thailand/Malaysia by train. Are there special tickets u can get, like a month season ticket or something?
Try here for Suvarnabhumi transport options. I would just take a bus into BKK. Cannot help on train options.
lots of options in terms of getting into central BKK. From within the airport there are several private taxi stands. These tend to be at least twice/three times the price of taking a metered taxi, which there are a couple of booths just outside of the arrival terminal. There is also the public bus as well.
If you use a taxi, just make sure it is a metered one and that the driver turns the meter on. Sometimes drivers will not do this in an attempt to over -charge you for your journey.
