Suvarnabhumi Airport

Alternatively referred to as the “New Bangkok International Airport”, Suvarnabhumi Airport is the biggest in the country, and the twentieth busiest airport in the world, handling more than 50 million passengers annually.

The design of the airport is so captivating that many who pass through it experience memories of their favourite science-fiction stories. The airport’s striking facade resulted in it becoming the world’s most photographed location on Instagram. As far as the world’s transport hubs are concerned, this is one of the most fascinating airports in the world.

The range of dining options available at Suvarnabhumi Airport is astonishing and includes healthy burgers, sushi bars, bistros, gourmet coffee and expertly prepared Italian pizzas. The Miracle Food Village is one of the most interesting places in the airport, famous for offering the best prices for food.

The airport can also hold its own against the most comprehensive shopping destinations the city has to offer since you can find more than 270 retail shops here, covering everything from luxury brands to humble handicrafts. The possibilities for retail therapy are more or less limitless. Be wary of prices though, although branded goods boast the best prices, handicrafts cost twice as much.
