Transport from Airport to Venue
There are two international airports in Bangkok
1. Bangkok Airport – Don Muang

To Venue from the airport it’s about 250-350 Baht exclude the charge is made up from tolls + airport surcharge, so although the meter may state less, you also have to pay the rest! This takes around 40-60 minutes.
2) Take the Bangkok airport bus – Passengers can travel between Don Muang Airport and to venue on a bus ride from Don Mueang Airport Bus goes to Lumpini Park [A3].
