  Bus ticket -- airport to Sukumvit
by Ewingjr98

The airport bus is the cheapest way to get from Bangkok airport to the city, but it can also be very time consuming and frustrating. The bus from the airport to Sukumvit is only 100 Baht (US$2.50), but you can end up waiting as long as 30 minutes for a bus to arrive, 10 minutes to board and get the passengers' destinations, and the ride can take 45 minutes to 1.5 hours depending on traffic. The bus I got on had a leaky window and I sat right in a soaking wet seat since it happened to be raining that day. My ass was soaked for hours.

Take a taxi for only 250 to 300 Baht ($7.50) and avoid all the trouble! This is especially true if you are traveling with other tourists as you can split the fare.
