The airport is located in Racha Thewa in Bang Phli district, Samut Prakan Province, about 25 km east of downtown Bangkok. The name Suvarnabhumi was chosen by King Bhumibol Adulyadej and refers to the golden kingdom hypothesized to have been located somewhere in Southeast Asia. Designed by Helmut Jahn of Murphy/Jahn Architects, this airport has the world's tallest control tower (132.2 m), and the world's third largest single building and airport terminal (563,000 mē), a little smaller than Hong Kong International Airport (570,000 mē) and the current record holder, Beijing Capital International Airport's Terminal Three (986,000 mē). Suvarnabhumi is one of the busiest airports in Asia and Bangkok's primary airport for all commercial airline flights.
