[ I was with a good friend of mine for the travel, but I’ll just talk about my story. ]


I was still afraid of take a taxi in BangKok(BKK).ย I wanted to go to my hotel by metro and walk. I didn’t take any bus in BKK, maybe I should delete ‘B’ ๐Ÿ™‚

Before I go to BKK I sent e-mail to the hotel asking how to get there from Suvarnabhumi airport. Next day, the hotel replied me kindly with very detail explanation. It was not only fromย Suvarnabhumi airport but from Don muang airport and how much cost if I take a taxi from the airport etc.)

I arrived at Suvarnabhumi airport in BKK and came out with out long line up around 21:30 local time. Before I ride the airport rail line, I wanted to exchange some money JPY to THB.ย Airport rail line and exchange shops are on the lower ground floor one in the airport.ย  When I got there it was pretty dark and quiet with less people.


[[ I searched for money exchangeย information on the Internet.ย (Oct, 2018)

1) JPY is better price than Doller at this time for who has Won
(I had to exchange Won to JPY through charge the cheapest exchange fee from one of the Korean Bank App. I could exchange 900,000 Won to JPY 90,000 Yen with around 3,800 Won ($3.5).

Simply 900,000 Won to exchange Dollars will be around $800. I didn’t calculated it well and I just want to think it was worth a try.

2) Currency Exchanges closed at 11 p.m and ‘Value Plus’ is good for less charge the cost. I don’t have idea how much cash I need for a few days so exchanged 20,000 Yen first.

I bought with 20,000 Yen -> Rate: 0.2915 -> 5,830 Baht

But what’s best is buying over $1,000(or 1,000,000 Won)ย  would be better price with less fee. ]]


After I exchanged some Baht, I needed to buy a ticket for the rail but the counter was closed already and I had to use a vending machine next to the counter. I was confused that I couldn’t see any English on the display from the machine and no one around at that time. Fortunately a local woman, she was about to buy her ticket to the city and helped me out. If it wasn’t her I don’t know when I could take the rail. I’m not sure the machine has no English or I just didn’t find out.

As soon as the airport rail arrived in front of me, all the people on the rail got offย  and cleaning people appeared to cleaning inside of the train for few minutes.

When I took the rail there was no foreigners but locals with smart phone. Many of people wore uniforms and it looked their way back home from work. I was the only one looking around. It was different from Korea, after work Korean usually change their clothes from uniforms but staring at smart phone was totally the same!


On the Airport Rail, I don’t think I heard English speaking for each station, so I had to listen carefully for each station pronunciation. Subway in Korea, you can usually hear Korean, English, Japanese and Chinese which I didn’t care that much what languages I can hear to take off.

Airport Rail ==> MRT and MRT ==> BTS

For the transfer, there was a bridge connected by walking distance. I was carrying a luggage and for each transfer it took about 5 to 10 min walk. While I’m walking I couldn’t find the sigh easily, I had to ask people if I’m going right way for the transfer.

I took this photo and it’s a BTS way in BKK.


Airport Rail,ย MRT andย BTS was very clean. I thought maybe take BTS often and bloggers said sometimes line for only buying ticket is very long and take a long time so I bought Rabbit card from BTS station counter.


  • The card expired in 5 years but need to use it once within two years to keep up the expired date.
  • Adult/ย  Student card
  • Choose optionsย  1) Basic: Card issuing fee 100 Baht+ charging 100 Baht.ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  2) For 15/ 25/ 40/ 50 trips (expired in 30 days)
  • Use in BTS in BKK/ RTC bus in CNX


It was very convenient for me whenever I take BTS. Before you go through the ticket gate there’s an orange colored Kiosk machine each station which you can have chain stores discount coupon for free with the rabbit card. Also you can use the card over 100 shops include the below.



I just found this site, online buying rabbit card with discount and free Thai 4G simcard.

I’m not a rabbit card seller, it’s only for your information.


Thank you for reading. I’m a Korean and my writings in English is for communicating, please kindly understand or leave a comment if there’s any misunderstanding or mistakes.
