This is not a trap. More like... Airport Departure Tax Review

This is not a trap. More like a 'tip.' Don't spend all your baht before going to the airport. You'll need 500 baht for the passenger service charge.

If you did some VAT refund shopping, pack the things you bought in one easy to show bag and make sure that you get your VAT refund form stamped BEFORE you check in your luggage, or you'll lose the right to the refund. The customs inspection booth is near row 9 of the check-in counters at the departure area.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
