    Isaan transport info needed

    Hi everyone, Hope someone can offer me some information on bus transport in Isaan. I have to travel from Khon Kaen to the new Suvarnabhumi airport on November 17. I want to be at the airport by about 7.00 pm. Would prefer a VIP bus but not that fussy. Please include any information on getting from the Mo Chip bus terminal to the airport. ie bus numbers or even approximate cost of taking a Taxi meter taxi.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Regards, Hugh

    Here is a site of a company that runs VIP buses. Cost is 414 baht and it takes six and one-half hours, so you can probably leave at a reasonable time in the morning. The timetable is on their web site.

    Others will have a better idea than I do about the specifics of getting to the airport from the bus terminal.

    I can't help you with the bus schedule or similar... just wanted to add something: there are two bus stations in Khon Kaen, be sure you go to the right one to catch your bus! I don't know their names or excact location, but people around here might know.

    When I was travelling around I found it easiest to go to the bus station a few days in advance and ask the people there which bus is best and where it would leave from (and also to make reservations).
    life is wonderful!

    as far as I remember, one of the express buses from/to the airport stop at Mo Chit. I did take photos of the bus routes when I was at the airport, I'll try to find the pic somewhere for details.

    Thanks for all the suggestions. Don't expect too much trouble with the Khon Kaen bangkok part, more of my options from Mo Chip to the new airport. I suspect the taxi fare is a lot more than the 100 Baht to the old airport.

    Rgds, Hugh

    Hugh - I dont know how much the taxi fair from Mo Chip will be but it definitely will be more expensive than the old airport as this airport is further. Just be prepared but sorry I cant give you a price - my estimate will be more than 100 and maybe closer to 200+...
