"Your taxi from the airport" Bangkok Transportation Tip by Meadows11

Bangkok Transportation: 1,190 reviews and 1,469 photos

Having read many great tips from fellow vters, I was fully aware of the prospect of various conmen and touts searching out commission. They certainly weren't wrong, so I got away from the hustle and bustle of the arrivals area and exited via the third floor departures section. There I grabbed a taxi which had just dropped someone off. I did have to tell the driver to turn the meter on and his english wasn't great, so I struggled to communicate my destination to him despite having the address written down. It might be an idea to have a copy in thai before you depart.
The starting rate for the cab was 35 baht, and this slowly increased 1baht at a time. Including the toll charge for going via the expressway, my journey to Phaya Thai from Don Muang International airport cost around 220 baht.
