Airplane Graveyard In Bangkok – A Complete Guide

The Airplane Graveyard Bangkok is one of the most unique things to do in the city. Not your typical tourist spot, here’s all the info for visiting.

UPDATE: I’ve been informed that as of the beginning of 2023 this attraction has been closed and there are no longer planes here.

How To Get To The Airplane Graveyard

The Airplane Graveyard in Bangkok is located on the East of the city, in the Bang Kapi District.

The easiest way to reach the Airplane Graveyard is to take a taxi/Uber. The correct address to give is Soi Ramkhamhaeng 103, which is located just off Ramkhamhaeng Road.

However, the cheapest way is to take the Khlong Saen Saep Express Boat service running through the city.

The hop on hop off service is just 20 Baht per person, and you can jump on from any of the points shown on the map below.

The stop to get off at is Wat Sriboonreung, the last stop on the ferry’s route, and you can then walk the remaining 650m (5 minutes) to the Airplane Graveyard Bangkok.

For those short on time, or that prefer everything to be organised for them, there are some awesome tours on Get Your Guide available to book in advance.

Airplane Graveyard Entrance Fee

Entrance Fee: 200-300 Baht per person

The entrance fee is as much a mystery as the airplane graveyard itself.

Run by a local family, it seems to depend on what kind of mood they’re in when you visit. We paid 400 Baht for the two of us!

What To Expect At The Airplane Graveyard In Bangkok

Huge, semi-demolished planes in the middle of the city!

Bangkok is definitely a hub of urban locations, however this one has a slightly eerie twist.

The history of the planes, an abandoned 747 and two smaller MD-82’s, sit in pieces on this urban wasteland just off of one of the busiest streets in Bangkok.

Ramkhamhaeng Road is not exactly on every tourists bucket list, however the Airplane Graveyard Bangkok has become more popular over recent years.

The planes have been abandoned since around 2010, apparently by a Thai businessman, who has been gradually selling off the parts of the airplanes for scrap.

However, in recent years three Thai families have made moved in turning the airplanes into their makeshift homes. And now charge people to go in and take photos, climb on the planes and explore the interiors.

Either way, it makes for a great spot for photographers, looking to bring out their creative side, or for those tourists looking to get off the beaten track and see something a little different.

It’s certainly one of the most unique things to do in Bangkok and worth a spot on the Bangkok itinerary if you have time.

Yep. I second that observation. No more planes at this location. It was fun to take the canal ferry to the end of the line though. :-)

It’s been cleared :( Just been to the airplane graveyard today and all the planes have been cleared - to grow food by the looks of things.
