SARL City Line Makkasan Suvarnabhumi Airport 001

Heading to Suvarnabhumi Airport to catch my flight back to Singapore, it was a no-brainer to catch the Airport Rail Link City Line to the airport for the fastest and cheapest way to get there, especially during the evening. As I was staying at Hua Lamphong, I didn’t head to Phaya Thai this time to get the airport train, but instead, simply interchanged at Phetchaburi from the MRT Blue Line to connect to the Airport Rail Link City Line at Makkasan.
