Transit between Don Mueng and Suvarnabhumi AirportsHey there,
I will be visiting Thailand and Vietnam over the summer. My AirAsia flight lands at Don Mueng airport at around 3 AM and I will taking the 15.00 Lufthansa flight to Ho Chi Minh City from Suvarnabhumi airport. Can anybody tell me about the shuttle bus between the airports and any place to store luggage safely for a few hours so that I can explore Bangkok before leaving?

1There are two left luggage counters at Suvarnabhumi, in arrivals (level 2) and in departures (level 4). Cost was THB 100 per piece per day last time I was there. You could leave your stuff there and take the airport link into Bangkok to explore for a few hours.

3Both airports have reliable and inexpensive left-luggage offices, but that would mean unnecessarily shuttling between the two airports.
You might consider the (even cheaper) left-luggage office at Hualamphong train station. Take a cab from DMK to the station, leave your bags, go have fun; around noon, go back to the station, get your bags, and take the train to BKK.

5#3 malvolio I know what you meant but but #4 is right the train does not go from Hualamphong to BKK
they can also catch the number 29 bus outside the airport to Hualamphong if there is a long wait for the train (check the expected arrival time not the scheduled arrival time!)

Is it safe to store luggage at Hualamphong? From what I've read so far, there are no luggage lockers as such.
In Thailand there are not luggage lockers,AFAIK,just shelved rooms attended by personnel.Dont leave on them nothing of value...money,passport,cameras...etc.
