The name Suvarnabhumi (pronounced su-wan-na-poom), which means "The Golden Land" was chosen by HM the King Bhumibol Adulyadej, specifically referring to the continental Indochina. "Golden Peninsula" or "Golden Land" is a traditional name for the Thailand-Cambodia-Laos-Burma region.
Suvarnabhumi Airport covers an area of some 8,000 acres (over 32 km²). The new airport is situated about 25 kilometers east of Bangkok. It is approximately 15 kilometers of on the east-bound Bangna-Trat Highway in Bang Phli District of Samut Prakarn province at Nong Ngu Hao (nongnughao translated as Cobra Swamp). It is accessible via five access routes. The main access is an elevated 2 x 5 lane road that leads from the passenger terminal through the northern part of the site to the new Bangkok-Chonburi Highway, and is approximately a 30-minute drive to/from downtown Bangkok in light traffic.
A 132 metre-high control tower of Suvarnabhumi Airport is the world's tallest.
The construction of the City Airport Terminal in Makkasan and a 28.6 kilometers high-speed rail link to the new Airport were planned for completion in 2007. The airport express, informally known as the Pink Line, jointly operated with SRT's planned Red Line commuter service, will connect with the BTS (Skytrain) Sukhumvit Line and MRT (Subway) Blue Line at Phaya Thai and Phetchaburi stations respectively, offering airport-bound passengers a fast 15-minute limited stop journey from the city.
