One thing i am thankful of staying in Malaysia is because we manage to purchase Air Asia's dirt cheap ticket :)
With RM 352.40 nett of return ticket to Bangkok, both me & my best buddies; Yen venturing the City together. Which also means, she will be my model of our trip as you will be seeing her pictures more than me. Haha.
The last when i travel to Bangkok, Air Asia's plane landed in "Suvarnabhumi International Airport" which is totally convenience for us taking BTS straight to Bangkok City & not getting stuck in the bad road traffic.
I previously stayed in Lub D Siam which is directly in front of BTS National Stadium. From "Suvarnabhumi International Airport" --> Take the express airport train & stop at the last station which is "BTS Phaya Thai"(7 stations from Airport) ---> Take the subway BTS from "BTS Phaya Thai Station"& stop at "BTS National Station"( 3 Stations from BTS Phaya Thai)
But since starting after middle of 2012, all flights to Bangkok's airport has change from "Suvarnabhumi International Airport" to "Don Mueang International Airport" which is not as convenience as Suvarnabhumi since there is no BTS connection from Don Mueang to the City.
It is either getting transportation by bus or taxi. We of course took bus since it is a cheaper :)
The moment our plane touches Don Mueang, the airport was not as crowded as Suvarnabhumi which is a plus point. Less crowd at the immigration counter.
