Shuttle between Bangkok airports
There are two International airports in Bangkok – one is Suvarnabhumi Airport (big one) and the other is Don Mueang Airport. 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.
