Bangkok Airport Guide – Immigration / Baggage Claim / Sim card / Public Taxi #livelovethailand


Arriving to Suvarnabhumi Bangkok airport,
and knowing exactly how to walk to immigration & process to baggage claim, getting a sim
card & heading to the public transportation could seem a kind of difficult & time wasting
process. So in this vlog we are going to show you step
by step all the mentioned process in order to make your arrival easy, which will help
you to save time and money. I just arrive to Suvarnabhumi International
airport in Bangkok and I will walk toward the immigration and after That to Baggage
claim, buy a sim card and Then take a public Taxi to downtown Bangkok. So as you walk inside from your arrived Gate
you will see Signs mentioning where you have to walk, which are very easy to follow the
Blue ones guides you to the immigration and baggage claim and the yellow ones guides you
to transfer and continuing your flights. Along the way you have many rest rooms and
toilets, so you can use them before you continue to the immigration. And no matter what gate your flight arrives
you will see these signs the blue and yellow guiding you at every walking path to the immigration,
so no worries just follow them. Your walk path may be short or long depending
where your plane gates arrives so as long as you see the signs continue walking and
as I said it depends from which gate you are walking it could take from 5 to 10 min to
arrive to the immigration. So don’t worry about the walking almost
all the path is covered with electric walking paths so that it can ease on you specially
if you have a heavy baggage. And on the blue signs you can see how many
meters you have to walk to arrive to the immigration so that could also help you to know how much
time you need. Now if you don’t have to catch another flight
and not in a hurry you can walk and take your time, buy if it’s the opposite than you
better hurry cause most of the times this airport is busy and you can waste lot of time
while you are waiting your turn in the immigration line. Along the way you can also find many exchange
desks where you can exchange your money to the local currency, but my advice to you is
to exchange the least amount since the rates are low in the airport and higher outside. Now here the sign shows to turn left for the
immigration so we will walk that way cause the other way leads to the transfers. And also once you turn there is a path that
leads you if you need visa on arrivals. This time my arrival gate was so far and I
had to walk more than 10 minutes to arrive to the immigration and that was so unlucky
and exhausting but sometimes you can be lucky and your arrival gate can be just so near
to the immigration. So we are just almost there this big led that
shows you the arrival flights is near the immigration point. Now we have to turn left again and finally
we are at the immigration and arrival point. Well another unlucky thing it was rush hour
and obviously we had to wait a lot before passing the immigration point. Now after 40 min of waiting our turn we have
passed and headed to the baggage claim to see which belt to collect our arrived baggage. Well for today I was for the 1st time lucky
my baggage was just passing in front of me so I grabbed it fast. So now You have to walk to the exit which
there are many A and B and C, all leads you to the same place so take the nearest one
and walk through. Also here you can find many exchange shops
but as I said if not necessary exchange the money outside the airport its better. In order to exit after baggage claim you don’t
have to walk too much its almost an exit in every 10 meters. So I chose Exit B since it directly leads
you to kiosks where they sell Sim cards so we can buy one before we head to the public
taxi. Here you can see the public transportation
information’s, but no worry keep walking cause you will see them outside too. Now here you have many Kiosks selling Sim
cards, choose the tourist sim cards they are the best and take them according how long
you will stay in Thailand, they will ask your passport and take a picture of you so its
simple process. Now that we have the sim card too, we are
walking to the public taxi which is in the 1st floor. Here you can find the information on what
kind of transportation you need, a private car a public taxi airport link train so choose
one and head to the mentioned floor. Ok now we are heading to the 1st floor since
the arrivals are in the 2nd floor, we are going to take the electronic stairs because
it’s a very crowded time and taking the elevator will be nearly impossible. If you want to take the airport link train
than you have to go down to the base floor. As you see it’s a very rush hour time and
walking in the airport kind of hard after 7 hours of flight. Now you follow the signs for the public taxi
exit, which in this case is turning right so we are going out to take the Taxi. So as you see in the sign we have to go outside
to take the public taxi so let’s walk. Also you have a public shuttle bus service
so it’s up to you. Here you have many kind of taxis depending
how many persons you are and what kind of taxi you need big or small. A woman will give you a number so that you
go and take the taxi of that number here we have number 41. Don’t worry about the fares those are airport
public taxi so they work on meter and you will pay according the distance and time to
your hotel or accommodation. The taxi Driver will be waiting for you on
the mentioned number you give the ticket to him and tell the address you want to go and
mission accomplished you are safely going to your hotel, welcome to Bangkok. I hope You enjoyed this Vlog and it will be
helpful for you when traveling to Bangkok. Thank you for watching subscribe for more
