i dont know if this has been mentioned before as i dont really post in the bangkok forum
i have some information i would like to share with you all regarding arrivals and departures
flew into bangkok international airport Suvarnabhumi and when walking down the hall to customs and *collect bags* the queues are HUGE and SLOW!!!
however there are three sections to the customs queue
obviously the one closer to you are the one you'll prob go to
we queued about 20 minutes, when my friend decided to look at the other customs queue
i want to share that the LAST customs section has NO queue, well about 50-70 people compared to a few hundred people at the first section
second info i'd like to share with you is...
if you are flying with airasia OUT of don mueang, you HAVE checked in online and only need to go to *bag drop off* be warned the service is severely slow!!!
definately go at least with 2 hours to pay with AT THE AIRPORT to feel safe
there was so many people running to catch their flights, one family had 7 minutes to catch their flight with a customs queue to go through, and again only a few people in the queue yet the time they took was very long
i dont know if this is a one off, or if this is how they work
but i just wanted to share the info with you guys who like myself normally gets to the airport about 60-90 minutes before flying as i dont like to waste time at the airport
