Taxis on the street in Bangkok Thailand
Taxis

Bangkok airport taxis are a good way to get from Suvarnabhumi Airport to your hotel or other final destination in the city center when you are visiting Thailand.

Taxis from the airport can be found outside of the arrivals halls on Level 1, which is the ground level of the airport. There is a taxi rank there, and there is also a taxi counter near entrances 3, 4, 7, and 8.

Bankgkok airport taxis take anywhere from 30 minutes to over an hour to get to the city center. The timing depends on traffic and where the taxi drops you off. Bangkok is known for having heavy traffic at most times of day, so make sure to leave yourself plenty of time to get from the airport to your destination in the city.

Taxis are generally in good condition, and have ample space in the trunk for bags. Drivers do not often speak English, so make sure to have a map with you and try to get the name of your hotel written down in Thai before you get into the taxi.

There is also a problem with drivers taking passengers on a circuitous route in order to charge more. If you can follow your progress on a map and make your driver aware of it, that will help cut down on them taking a non-direct route.

Bankgkok airport taxis vary in price. Make sure the driver uses the meter, as the fare should be based on the metered rate. In addition, there is a 50 THB airport surcharge and you will have to pay any road tolls you encounter along the way. In general, airport taxi fares range from 300 THB to 500 THB.
