Bangkok rail link

SUVARNABHUMI AIRPORT, Bangkok’s new international hub, finally has an operational rail link to the downtown area of the city many months after it was technically completed.  The social unrest problems in Thailand did not help but there had been important differences between the railway constructor and the train operator.  The 16-mile long track links joins the airport to the City Air Terminal (CAT) in Bangkok’s Makkasan area through a non-stop 15-minute journey titled the Express Service.  The rail news is a good indication that life is returning to normal in Bangkok after the disruptions earlier this year. www.bangkokairporttrain.com
