Venue & Directions

AHRD2018 in Bangkok will be held at the Sukosol Bangkok Hotel. The Sukosol Bangkok is positioned in the heart of Bangkok and easily accessible from the airport, via the express highway and Airport Rail Link (ARL) at Phaya Thai station.


Conveniently located next to Phaya Thai BTS station, as well as the new Airport Rail Link to Suvarnabhumi International Airport, The Sukosol is just two stops from Siam, the heart of Bangkok's shopping center. The hotel is also close to Victory Monument and has easy access to both the expressway network and the tollway to Don Muang Airport.

  • 1.) From Suvarnabhumni International Airport

    Airport Taxi

    Located on the second level of the Arrival Hall of Suvarnabhumni International Airport, taxis from the airport are readily available. As most taxi drivers do not speak English, it is advisable to contact the taxi hiring station to assist you with communicating with the driver. The one-way fare from the airport to the city is approximately 300 Thai Baht (approx. $US10) and motorway toll charges are additional (25 Baht).

    Airport Rail Link (ARL)

    The Airport Rail Link runs from Suvarnabhumi International Airport to central Bangkok (Phaya Thai Station) from 06:00 to 24:00 daily. The City Line departs every 20 minutes and takes 30 minutes (stopping at eight stations) for a fee of 45 Baht (approx. $US1.5). The nearest ARL station is Phaya Thai Station.

    Airport Express Bus

    This is an air-conditioned bus service between Suvarnabhumi International Airport and The Sukosol. The cost is Baht 150 (approx. $US5) and it takes about 1 hour, departing every 20 min. Airport Express services operate from 05:00 to 24:00 daily. You will need to catch bus AE4 Suvarnabhumi-Hua Lamphong (via expressway), getting off at stop 6: BTS Phaya Thai (Florida Hotel), which is directly opposite the hotel. The bus departs from the airport Arrival Hall, level 1 (gate 8).

    Hotel Transportation

    Transportation provided by the hotel is also available; please directly contact the hotel at (+66) 2 247 0123 or for advance reservation.

  • 2.) From inside the city

    Skytrain (BTS)

    Currently, there are two routes, the Sukhumvit Line and the Silom Line, which cover much of the central city and its many commercial, residential, and tourist areas. The trains run daily between 06:00 and 24:00 with frequent services, about every 5 minutes. The nearest ARL station is Phaya Thai Station (exit 4) on the Sukhumvit Line. Using the automated (in English) ticket machines or ticket window, you can buy a Single Journey Ticket, 10 Baht and up (depending on number of stops) or One-Day Pass, 120 Baht (approx. $US4).
