Transport between Airport and Hua Lamphong

What will be the best transport combination between the airport and Hua Lamphong station? I prefer the rail section but surely I need to get a taxi somewhere for the last portion to the station.

The above link has lots of information about the choices you can make, and how to use the various transport options.

You could:

1. Take a taxi - easiest option as there is an expressway ramp right by the station. Makes even more sense if there are 2+ people.

2. Airport rail link to Makkasaon, then walk 200 meters to Petchaburi MRT station, and ride the MRT to Hualumpong. If you have baggage then this is not ideal.

3. Airport rail link to Phayathai, then take a taxi.

Go to the second floor of the airport. Find the free shuttle to the airport bus station. Take the 551, 552, 554, or the 555 bus depending on time of day. It will be the cheapest way to get to Hua Lamphong station. Be sure to research before using this mode of transportation as you will need to know where to get off & change bus or take BTS/MRT.

It's really not difficult to transfer at Makkasan to the MRT with standard baggage (ie wheeled suitcase and carry-on).

So I recommend: ARL City Line train to Makkasan (35 baht, about 20 minutes), then MRT direct to Hualamphong (29 baht, about 15 minutes).

I would endorse bill2p advice.

ARL City Line to Makkasan + MRT for final portion of the journey.

Smooth and inexpensive.

Happy arrival

Avoid the traffic and take a combination of the airport rail link and Underground/Subway as suggested above. And, as bill2p suggests the transfer from Petchaburi to Makkasan is not difficult and it takes a matter of minutes.
