Bang Na location for overnight near Suvarnabhumi

We get into Suvarnabhumi Airport around 3pm and then fly to Phuket next day around 10:50am - and have been looking at areas to stay where we can spend that first evening maybe browsing through a mall and eating some local food.

Bang Na came up in my research - 30 mins away, and then, Mega Bang Na is a good attraction. With parents who cant walk too much - this could work.

What are your thoughts?

Thanks,

D

Bangna Boring ..... IMHO

For an extra 20 minutes in the taxi you could be in central Bangkok by the river.

BangNa should work, IMO.

No matter where, even boring will be fine. Long haul flight, 3pm, out of airport 5 settled at hotel hopefully before 6pm. Sitting in restaurant then out around 8 ish PM.

You get a good 9ish hrs night's sleep, if wanting, and may need, for an early wake, brekkie, out the door to airport at 8AM. Should leave you 2+ hours for check-in.

Bang Na is mostly residential apart from the 2 malls. Lots of apartment buildings and streetfood but not much tourist infrastructure outside the malls.

I think Bang Na will become the next up and coming area soon because the main Ekkamai bus station is due to be moved there and another huge mall is planned (supposedly the biggest in South East Asia and 3 times the size of Siam Paragon).
