Do you want to save money on your taxi fare when you arrive at the Suvarnabhumi (pronounced as sùwannáp?m) Airport in Thailand? I guess you do.
The average amount an Airport Taxi charge from the airport to Bangkok is from THB 1,200 to THB 1,500. To avoid this ridiculous amount and save money, go to the 4th floor of the airport which is the Departure area and hail a taxi. The taxi drivers always negotiate with a fixed rate around THB 500 but you always have the option to get a metered taxi which is the cheapest. Just tell them you want a metered taxi. Once you are in the Taxi, the driver will ask you if you want to go on a free way and avoid the traffic, but you have to pay the toll fee of about THB 65. If you’re in a hurry, get that option but if not then enjoy the traffic and you can save few baht.
The last time I was there going to Bangkok, the taxi meter was only THB 241 + Toll gate fees of THB 65 = THB 306 (US$9.00). I saved more than a thousand Baht which I can use for my Thai authentic massage. J
