A taxi ride would be at least 3000 Baht, but from the Airport you have taxi stands with fixed prices for most destination. From downtown Bangkok, you can negotiate to as low as 2000 Baht. The less expensive would be to take the public minibuses. Thais use them for transport between provinces. Most of the minibuses can be catched at Victory Monument. To go ...

Taxis are your best bet. They're affordable, available and, if my memory serves me well, run at a fixed price. Also if my memory serves me well, the taxi fare does not include toll road charges. Depending on where you're going, you could be at your destination in 20 minutes, but assume 30. There should also be bus transfers available, but depending on where ...

According to Bangkok's airport website: Suvarnabhumi International Airport Departure Tax (Bangkok International Airport Departure Tax) = 700 Baht BUT, note that it also says: Since February 1, 2007 the 700 Baht international departure tax was included in the price of flight tickets. (The international departure tax is usually included in ...

The simplest and cheapest way to get to Khao San Road from Suvarnabhumi Airport is to take the Airport Rail Link (ARL) City Line train to Makkasan Station (20 minutes, 35 baht) and then a #556 bus at the bus stop immediately in front of the doors to the station (35 baht). Don't take an Airport Express train - you'll pay a lot extra to save 5 minutes. (As of ...

The answer to your question will depend on which Bangkok airport you are referring to, as there are two of them. The primary airport is Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK), which is often referred to as "Bangkok International Airport", and handles all International flights. The second airport, Don Mueang International Airport (DMK), is the old Bangkok International ...

The best way is to stay at the Inter-Continental and charter their Cessna for the 35-minute hop. But at 50,000 baht one-way, this may not be all that cost-effective ;)

How much is your time worth? The cheapest sensible option is to wait at the airport for 5.5 hours, then take the 07:30 Airport shuttle bus to Hua Hin for 305 baht. The slightly faster and slightly cheaper, but rather challenging option would be to take the little shuttle to the airport's bus terminal (runs 24 hours), then public bus 551 to Victory Monument ...

So apparently Qatar Airways has multiple baggage rules. Some routes (to/from US, Canada, Brazil, Argentina) have rules based both on number of pieces and weight, as most other airlines (as far as I know). In your case (travel between Europe and Asia via Doha), the baggage allowance is only based on the weight you carry. You are allowed 23 kg as checked-in ...

I think a metered taxi from the airport (Suvarnabhumi) to Hua-hin should be around 2,500 Baht, I did a quick online search and found a company called oriental escape that offer airport or downton pickup and transfer to Hua-hin for 2,650 Baht in an economy car (toyota Soluna) so a taxi should be a little bit cheaper than that, I usually get a taxi from ...

To get from Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi Airport into town, you could typically take the Airport Express Link or the standard train lines. Unfortunately, the area where Khao San Road is, is not connected AT ALL by any of their intra-city train lines. So depending on WHEN you arrive, here are your options (I don't remember that exact prices, I looked these up on ...

Yes on Qatar Airways you can pre-purchase luggage and in fact if you do it online Qatar offer you a discount from doing it over the phone or at the airport. For their list of rates check out this page on the Qatar website - http://www.qatarairways.com/global/en/excess-baggage-rates.page If going from Europe to the Far East then it is $13 per kg if paid ...

When arriving in Bangkok we have previously booked with the AOT service when we landed and were waiting for bags to arrive. Very efficient and effective service and when have had deals on booking the return leg. They offer a variety of cars/services and may be an option you wish to consider if you are visiting Bangkok for the first time and arriving late at ...
