Airport sounds Bangkok is currently my favorite airport album I have ever created so far and after editing all the sounds, I have around 80 minutes and 11 tracks for you recorded.
Scroll down to the downloadable album! ( new exciting website update is coming soon to make this easier for you!)
I used the Zoom F4 and the Zoom H6 & all recordings are binaural with the Soundman OKM II Rock studio.
If you want to follow me from the beginning, start listening with track& the Zoom H6 recordings in the album. I started recording after leaving the aircraft. We arrived at the domestic terminal and left Bangkok from the international terminal.
We flew in from Chiang Mai and took a quick one hour flight with Thai Viet Jet.
Just a random note. We couldn’t check in our luggage online and at the counter, they told us 15 kg is the maximum. After placing the luggage on the belt the scale showed 28kg and we all looked at each other and 3 seconds later she told us, “Today I give you a discount”. No extra charge, no problem. That would never happen in Germany or in the States.
We flew with a brand new Airbus 320 and I will publish these sound effects on the website but if you already have access to my Complete Library you can find them in the Thailand Category.
After leaving the plane we went straight to the baggage claim and you can listen to so many cool sounds along the way. The rolling suitcases in the gangway or the Chinese lady next to me, using the travelator and so many fun announcements along the way. Please wear headphones by the way!
After we reached the baggage claim we picked up our luggage and you can listen to different suitcases falling from the belt. People chatting and picking up their luggage.
After leaving the baggage claim with our stuff we went to the main terminal and straight to the Jetstar counter.
The main terminal is just amazing. Such a huge hall, great architecture and the reverb is so incredible. You can listen to thousands of people but the hall is so huge it all sounds so soft. Just like a calm ocean of sounds. I think only 0.01 percent of the population realize that.
The soft white noise in the background is from the air conditions running from each corner and from the walls.
Other than other airports this one doesn’t play any music that is just great for these kinds of recordings. Changi in Singapore is different.
In track number nine you can listen at 5:30 min how we taking the elevator to get an authentic elevator sound. After the doors are closing almost silence.
We have the Priority Pass what allows us to enter certain lounges all over the world without extra charge and this time we went to the “Miracle” lounge. Sometimes we can go to restaurants if there is no lounge and can use a food voucher up to 30 USD each person.
After entering the lounge you can listen to people eating, moving chairs and dishes around. But after a few minutes later, we had the lounge for us alone.
Of course, I recorded the toilet flush inside the lounge 🙂
After checking the flight schedule we left the lounge 20 minutes later and walked all the way from gate D to gate E.
Please start listening with track One after the toilet flush.
I changed the recorder to the F4 now and we are leaving the lounge and walking to our gate and slowly it’s getting super busy now.
Track Number 3 Part 02 is one of my favorite.
The walk is around 600 meters and filled with some incredible soundscapes.
I stopped next to a shop to get the sound of the cashier and the beeping sound of the register plus I got the sound of a needle printer.
If you turn left and you reach the escalator you can see until the end of the terminal and it’s an amazing view.
Our aircraft left from gate 10 so we had to walk all the way to the end.
After we reached the gate it was still closed and we waited with hundreds of people upstairs but after the staff came and opened the small door we walked down with a group of people to the next waiting area and you can listen to some fantastic sounds as well.
( Track 5) We walked down a metal walkway and the sounds are just going crazy. People chatting, kids playing, the suitcases on the metal walkway rolling, a needle printer, the staff ripping off the boarding cards and a Chinese kid screams for his dad. Super cool recording.
Libby did some exercises with one of the kids while waiting for the aircraft.
Then I went into the bathroom and recorded the second toilet flush.
After that, it was time to board the aircraft and I recorded the announcements of it. We have this in English and Thai.
I walked all the way the gangway and you can hear again the really cool rolling sound of the suitcases and you can already hear the engine of the aircraft in the background getting louder
In the aircraft was music so I stopped the recording after “Welcome On Board”!
Overall the Bangkok Airport sounds are just incredible and super unique and I am so glad I had the opportunity to record them. Next airport sounds I am going to publish are from Chiang Mai Airport and Changi Airport Singapore! Stay tuned!
