There are two International airports in Bangkok – one is Suvarnabhumi Airport (big one) and the other is Don Mueang Airport.
Shuttle between Bangkok airports
I was dropped at the Suvarnabhumi airport by my taxi driver and my flight was at Don Mueang airport. There were many taxi drivers who tried to mislead me in taking taxis. The taxis cost money, where as there are free shuttles between the airports. All one needs to do is show the ticket and the passport. If the ticket is valid then the transportation between the airports is free. The shuttle bus leaves at Door number 3 in Suvarnabhumi.
Storage in Don Mueang (Bangkok airport)
One of the biggest problems while travelling alone is managing suitcases. They are heavy and not very easy to manage. I had the same problem when I was in Bangkok at the Don Mueang International airport and was not sure where the storage in Don Mueang was.
After asking around and searching for quite some time, I found a place on level 2 where one can store the luggage for Thai Bhat 75 for 24 hours. It is an easy process. The place is called Left Baggage and the guy scans the bag, places a tag and provides a receipt. The payment needs to be made while collecting the bag. Note: The payment needs to be in cash.
This was such a blessing for me as I wanted to explore the city a bit during my transit hours in Bangkok.
