We provide a free shuttle van service for our patients, either to our hospital or the patient’s hotel, from Suvarnabhumi International Airport. Bumrungrad operates this van service from the A World of Care desk, which is located in Area C of the arrival area near outdoor exit gate 10. A van departs every hour (depending on the number of passengers) to make the 28 km drive to Bumrungrad International Hospital.
Don Mueang International Airport offer general transfer services at booths located just beyond the luggage pickup area. Simply inform the desk staff that you would like to go to Bumrungrad Hospital and they will know where to take you. We are located approximately 23 km from Don Mueang International Airport.
There are also easy-to-use taxi queue services at both airports located outside at ground level.
Bangkok’s sky train and metro
BTS (Bangkok Mass Transit System)
Also known as the Sky Train, the BTS is open daily from 6am to 12am midnight and features two lines, Sukhumvit and Silom lines, which cross at Siam Station (Central).
Travel to Nana Station (E3) on the Sukhumvit Line and after exiting the station, look for the Bumrungrad Shuttle that comes approximately every 15 minutes, depending on traffic. Alternatively, travel to Phloenchit Station (E2) and after exiting the station, cross under the expressway, turn left onto Sukhumvit Soi 1, and walk 200 meters. Bumrungrad International Hospital will be on you right hand side.
MRT (Bangkok Metro)
Also referred to as Bangkok’s metro or subway, the MRT is also open daily from 6am to 12am midnight and consists of one line. Exit at the Phetchaburi Station, which is 1.5 km from Bumrungrad International Hospital. It is also possible to transfer from the MRT to the BTS at Asok Station (E4).
Bangkok’s main train station, Hua Lamphong Central Rail Station, connects all of Thailand’s Northern, Southern, Eastern, and Northeastern train lines. It is located 10 km from Bumrungrad International Hospital and is connected to the MRT at the Hualamphong Station.
Bangkok’s taxis are easily identifiable by their neon colors. You can hail one easily from any main road or side street, line up in a queue after exiting an airport or bus station, or request that your hotel concierge arrange one for you.
Taxis should always use the meter, although some hotels may offer a flat rate taxi service to Bumrungrad International Hospital.
Expressway (toll road)
Bangkok has expressways built above the city that offer more direct and faster routes, but they charge a toll.
Bumrungrad Hospital is accessible from two expressways: Sirat Expressway on Exit 2-01 towards Rama IX Road or Chalerm Maha-Nakhon Expressway on Exit 1-01 towards Asoke Sukhumvit/North Ploenchit.
If you drive in your own vehicle, be aware that limited parking space is available at Bumrungrad International Hospital.
