Another look at Suvarnabhumi Airport – departure, Part 2
Previously, I posted on my arrival at the airport prior to my return to Manila. Here’s a continuation with more photos of the terminal at the departure level of Suvarnabhumi Airport.

Somebody said it is easy to get lost in a terminal this spacious.
Just follow the signs and the information boards
Here’s a closer look at one of the information boards showing departing flight information such as the status of outbound flights and the designated check-in counters.
Among my favourites at Suvarnabhumi Airport are these sentinel-like figures “watching over” the busy airport.
Thai Airways check-in counters designated for my flight back to Manila – there were no queues as there were more than enough counters and staff to handle passengers as of the time I checked-in. It helped that I checked-in online so I went directly to the bag-drop counters for my luggage and my boarding pass.
Going up the escalator for the final airport security check and the immigration counters, I took this photo of the spacious terminal.
Here’s another shot just before I placed my phone in my backpack prior to the security check.
Upon clearing immigration, one is greeted by yet another display. I already featured this in previous (old) posts on the airport where I showed some close-ups.
The ways to the boarding gates are lined up with shops.
Here are more shops along the way.
There are the usual souvenir shops, boutiques, and the cafes and restaurants for those who need refreshments.
More photos in the last instalment of this series!
