Access from Airports

 

 

Bangkok is served by two airports: Suvarnabhumi (pronounced Suvarnapoom) International Airport and Don Muang. The former handles the vast majority of air traffic including international flights, cargo and some domestic flights. Don Muang handles some domestic flights for these three airlines: Thai Airways (non-connecting domestic flights), Nok Air (domestic flights) and One-Two-Go (domestic flights).

Suvarnabhumi International Airport is to the south-west of Bangkok.

 

Getting Around Bangkok

 

 

Getting around Bangkok on the mass transit system is easy. The Skytrain (BTS) and underground (MRT) rail systems connect the main shopping, entertainment and business areas of the city, while river taxis and express boats can be used to explore many historic sites and attractions at the riverside. Taxis are cheap and appear on virtually every corner at almost any time.

 

Meter taxis now predominate, but sometimes you may have to politely ask them to switch the meter on to save negotiating later. A small tip is often appreciated.

 

The Four Seasons Hotel is right beside the Rajadamri BTS Station.

For security reasons, all participants must be registered and be in possession of their identification badge at all times, including at social events.

 

Participants will receive their badges at the registration desk upon arrival at the Conference.

Please note that the access to the meeting room will be restricted to those wearing their identification badges .
