transfer from DMK to BKK


We are traveling from Bali to Bangkok (DMK) in the month of December and have a connecting flight to Koh Samui from BKK. Our flight arrives in DMK at 3:15 pm and our flight out of BKK is at 7:45 pm. We are citizens of India and will need a Visa on arrival. Do I have enough time to clear customs, get my visa and get to BKK from DMK. What is the best/fastest transportation option to get between airports.

I would really appreciate some guidance on this.

Thank you

You have plenty of time. Unless there's a major problem, you should be through Immigration and baggage claim by 16:15. So you could take a free shuttle bus to save some money. You need to check in at BKK at about 19:00 at the latest.

Just few smart advice for faster visa on arrival:

Download visa on arrival form and prefill it.

Make sure you have cash 1000 thb per person as visa fee.

Stand in line with these documents: passport , visa on arrival form , return ticket and 1000 thb

Visa officer will give you token number for immigration counter.

Most of my guests were able clear visa on arrival in 20 min.

Spot on number 2. No need to waste money on a taxi. You'll have plenty of time to take a free shuttle bus which leaves DMK on the hour. Trip to BKK will take you about 60 minutes. So just aim for the 5PM bus. When you miss that one then take a taxi.
