In this article, I will show you how to take a train and bus from Suvarnabhumi airport to MALEE’S HOME along with examples. In addition, I recommend this way to the following cases.
- Save money even a little
- Prefer the train better than the car
- While watching the cityscape slowly
- No traffic jam
Also, I will list demerits as well as recommendation.
- It takes time anyway
- It’s hard if you have large baggages
- If you are 2-3 person, the cost per person is not much different from taxis
I will tell you from the beginning, taking taxi is much easier. And the taxi fee in Thailand is not expensive.
