The name Suvarnabhumi (pronounced su-wan-na-poom), meaning "The Golden Land", was chosen by HM King Bhumibol Adulyadej, specifically referring to continental Indochina. Golden Peninsula or Golden Land is a classic name for the Thailand-Cambodia-Laos-Burma region.

Suvarnabhumi Airport covers an area of some 8,000 acres (~32 km²) called Cobra Swamp (nong ngu hao in Thai). It's approximately 25 km east of Bangkok and about 15 km on the eastbound Bangna-Trat Highway in the Bang Phli District of Samut Prakarn province. It is accessible via five access routes. The main one is an elevated 2 x 5 lane road that leads from the passenger terminal to the new Bangkok-Chonburi Highway and is an half an hour or so drive to/from downtown Bangkok in light traffic.
