    we agreed on 1000THB last fall for taxi from the official queue (meter off for out of town trips), took about 90 min. Might be able to bargain it lower.

    Certainly no more than 1000 baht for the taxi, though you may be able to bargain down to around 800. Otherwise you can take a taxi from the airport to Morchit (northern) bus station and catch a bus from there (as I recall, when you walk in the terminal the booths for Ayutthaya are not hard to find and have good signs in English). I'm guessing a taxi from Suvarnabhumi to Morchit would run around 200 baht, and the bus ticket from there to Ayutthaya is something like 70 baht/person. There are other ways too (train, mini-bus from Victory Monument, tourist bus from Khao San), but I've not tried any of those.

    Good luck,

    DL

    back in the day when Don Muang was Bangkok's main airport, after arriving on the redeye flights from Europe I'd take the pedestrian bridge across the road to the small Don Muang train station and catch a train directly to Ayutthaya from there, as most trains coming through that station stop in Ayutthaya. it's a classy, scenic, cheap, and reasonably short train trip and Ayutthaya was a great place for a day or two to get past jet lag.

    i imagine that in addition to the good suggestions above, you could catch the airport bus that goes to Don Muang and then connect by train from there. might be another, less expensive option for you.
