Terminal Information – Departing
This is only a guideline. Always check your boarding pass for up-to-date terminal information.
Most of the airlines flying to Suvarnabhumi depart from terminal 1, while flights to Don Mueang depart from terminal 2. The exception to this rule is Thai Airways, who fly from terminal 2 to Suvarnabhumi Airport. Both terminals at Hong Kong Airport offer a wide range of places to eat and shop. In addition to duty free and craft shops, you'll also find a fine selection of fashion and tech stores. Terminal 2 has plenty to keep you entertained, including an IMAX theatre and an Aviation Discovery Centre. Terminal 1 has two pay-in lounges, both run by Premium Plaza. Both terminals have free Wi-Fi.
Terminal Information – Arriving
At Don Mueang: The airport's train station is located a short walk from the airport, under a covered walkway. Tickets to Hualamphong station in the city centre cost ฿20* (roughly 40p) and the journey takes around an hour. Public buses are also available to destinations such as Victory Monument (bus 510), Sukhumvit (Bus 513), Rattanakosin (Bus 59) and Siam Square (Bus 29 and 504). There's a public taxi stand immediately outside arrivals: expect to pay ฿250* (about £4.90) for a trip into the city centre.
At Suvarnabhumi: The fastest way to reach downtown Bangkok is with the Express Train, which goes to Makkasan BTS Skytrain station. One-way tickets are ฿150* (about £2.95). The city line train also connects to the BTS, but takes longer. Tickets are just ฿45* (about 90p). Public buses to areas not served by the BTS (such as backpacker favourite Khao San Road) are available from the public transportation centre, a short shuttle ride from the airport. You can catch the free shuttle from the second floor (near gate 5). Metered taxis are available from the floor below the arrivals area. Expect to pay around ฿250-400* (£4.90-7.80) plus tolls.
You need a passport to fly to Bangkok from Hong Kong. Thailand has a 30-day visa waiver for British citizens: you can extend it for 30 days at an immigration office. You might be asked to show proof of onward travel when you arrive, so book your flights from Thailand before you travel.
What to expect in Bangkok
Bangkok is one hour behind Hong Kong: the local currency is the Thai baht (฿). You'll get plenty of baht for your Hong Kong dollars, too: dinner for two in Bangkok rarely comes to more than £15*, while a pint of local beer is just £1.20*. Taxis in Bangkok are a lot cheaper too, at about 17p* per kilometre. Just make sure the driver puts the meter on and be wary of anyone offering you a flat rate. The temperature in Bangkok holds fairly steady all year round, with temperatures sitting at around 31°C in summer and 26°C in winter. Humidity is lowest and temperatures are coolest from October to March, making this the most pleasant time to visit.
