Leo Laksi’s Bangkok And Back

Nothing Ventured, Nothing Gained

View of the Suvarnabhumi Airport, Bangkok

There are many new glittering airports in Asia.  The one I find most interesting is the new international airport in Bangkok.  It’s design is somewhat futuristic from the outside but what I find the most interesting is the interior space.  As you walk through the airport to your gate, you get the impression you are in a large spaceship.  There is that sense.   With a little imagination, that’s the lasting image.

The only problem I encountered is the immigration process.  Sometimes the lines, both arrival and departure, can the long and time-consuming.  Since there are two immigration areas for both arrival and departure, if one is congested, walk down to the other.  Today the departure lines for one immigration area was horrendous.  I simply walked about 150 meters to the other. There were no lines.  Good luck!

  1. You’re right… it does look like an entrance to a spaceship. I haven’t flown into Thailand yet. So far, Changi International airport is still the winner for me.

  2. Changi is a very nice airport. It is well conceived and very easy to use. Detailing is excellent. Just not as interesting from a design perspective.
