If you go by taxi

I bought a thing from Suvarnabhumi Airport through Don Mueang Airport in order to buy a cheap air ticket, but I feel uncomfortable to use a high-priced taxi here. Let’s get on from the platform.


The taxi stand is on the first floor of the airport, so you can choose between large taxis and regular taxis, depending on your luggage and number of passengers. When your turn comes, touch the LCD screen to get a taxi ticket and get into the taxi.

The cost is about 300 baht. If you use an airport taxi, the airport management fee is 50 baht, so it costs about 350 baht.
