Tips on Taking A2 Bus
On the way to Victory Monument, A2 Bus passes BTS Mo Chit Station and MRT Chatuchak Park Station. This place is roughly on the mid-way between Don Muang Airport and the center of Bangkok City. Dropping off here and changing to the BTS or MRT is a good way to avoid the horrendous traffic of Thai capital. You can also take BTS at Victory Monument but covering the distance between Chatuchak and Victory Monument by BTS would be much faster, especially during rush hour.
Boarding on A2 Bus at Don Muang Airport might be not convenient for passengers with children and big luggage. There is no luggage space inside older yellow buses and limited space in new blue buses. The buses on A2 route also tend to get very crowded during rush hour so you might need to stand all the way to your destination. The journey can take much more than 40 minutes, as the length of it depends on the time of the day and traffic conditions.
A1 Bus also passes BTS Mo Chit and MRT Chatuchak Park station so, if you are planning to use BTS, you can choose this bus route instead.
