Bangkok International Airport (Suvarnabhumi Airport)

The Bangkok International Airport is main international airport in Bangkok, Thailand. It’s official name is the Suvarnabhumi Airport, but is also referred to as the “new” Bangkok International Airport. The reason it is referred to as the “new” airport is because the old airport that used to be the main international airport in Bangkok was the Don Mueang International Airport. Before construction of the Suvarnabhumi Airport, Don Mueang International Airport was what people meant when they referred to the Bangkok International Airport.
