Thailand's portal to the rest of the world, Suvarnabhumi is an enormous, modern airport which has paid a huge part in the rapid modernisation of Bangkok. With the Airport railway link now up and running it has never been easier to get to the centre of the capital or vice versa.
Although it may seem like a fair distance outside the capital there are still ... More>a number of attractions in the area well worth visiting. The BITEC exhibition centre frequently hosts conferences and expositions and is often used for business so staying in a Suvarnabhumi hotel nearby can be handy. Alternatively, the country's major sports stadium, Rajamangala, is in the area too and this venue is usually used for major football games involving the national team and touring big name clubs. An unbelievably huge shopping centre is also pretty close to the airport. Known as Seacon Square this gigantic mall also has a fancier sibling located next door, named Paradise Park, should you need to fulfil any shopping needs.
