The cheapest way is to take the Airport Rail Link from Suvarnabhumi Airport to Phaya Thai Station. A single journey costs 45 baht and takes around 26 minutes. From Phaya Thai station you can change to the Bangkok Train Service (BTS) which is adjacent to the Airport Rail Link and travel to your desired location along the BTS routes. You can also walk down from the station and grab a taxi.

A more expensive way would be to take a taxi from the airport which is available at gates 4 and 7 on the first floor of the airport. In the link below, a destination card with Thai translation is provided here. You may want to show the card to the taxi driver.
