    Plenty of cycling in 2016

    Life, Pongpet Mekloy, Published on 31/12/2015

    » After six months or so of closure, the revamped cycling track around Suvarnabhumi International Airport was officially reopened last Saturday. Renamed the "Sky Lane", this collaboration between the Airport of Thailand (AOT) and Siam Commercial Bank (SCB) has been greatly welcomed by Bangkok's cycling community. The return of this bike track to the short list of places where residents of the capital can train or enjoy leisurely rides without the risk of becoming roadkill is definitely one of this year's best bit of good news.

    Airport Link opens

    By david, Created on: 16/08/2010, Last updated on: 12/01/2016

    » The new airport rail link opens August 23 and Only three problems impede its linkup with the skytrain and the underground? Once these issues are sorted out, however, the benefits for Bangkok's tourism industry will be phenomenal? The airport link will be good for single travelers, but for 2 or more...

    • bobbyd commented : Was reading a best and worst of 2010 stories. It mentioned [b:2hjbzvbs]seventy percent[/b:2hjbzvbs] of international flights arrive between midnight and 3am. As noted, Airport link closes at midnight and opens at 6am. [b:2hjbzvbs]Updates[/b:2hjbzvbs] Also read, Bangkok Airways and Thai Airways International began operating check-in counters at the Makkasan downtown station on Monday. Fares have risen: the Express Line fare will rise from 100 to 150 baht, while fares on the City Line are no longer offered at the flat 15-baht rate, but at a new progressive rate of 15-45 baht. THAI's check-in services operate from 8am to 9pm. Passengers could check in and have their baggage loaded between three and 12 hours before their flights. The service is expected to appeal more to foreign backpackers. Supposedly, a footbridge would be built to link Makkasan station and the MRT subway Phetchaburi station by May. Wanna wager on the date? Ratchaprarop, Hua Mak and Phaya Skytrain stations on the Airport Rail Link will be equipped with escalators by the middle of the year. This year? While I still like the airports trains I see comments such as this: he seats in the City line are too short! It is faster using a taxi from airport and using express ways than taking a taxi at Makasan which is surrounded by the most notorious traffic jams in Bangkok. 2 people up, its cheaper and FASTER to use a taxi as you need to take a taxi again anyway ones you arrive in the city by train!
