    Hi Tony

    If you check out the Thailand message board, there is a post (airport bus schedule) that has a link to the Bangkok transit system to provide info for Bangkok buses. I tried to give you the link but as Somtam has activated the link I can't cut and paste it for you here.

    I have read stuff regarding taxi fares from Suvarnabhumi to town onsite but can't find now ... keep trolling through those recent posts.

    Good luck

    Marian

    Hi Tony,

    This story has a round-up of Savanabhumimimi transport stuff. For a meter cab from KSR you'd be looking at around 250B-300B before tolls.

    Actually, and I'm not sure if this is official or not, but nearly all cabs to the new airport are now charging a flat fee of 500 baht. It's a rip off I know, especially when you are staying in the east part of the city, but it seems to be a common pratice. If you are lucky enough to get a cab using the meter, then yes, it's about 250-300 baht.

    Forgot to mention there's the AE3 airport bus that goes down Sukhumvit road and it costs 150 baht.
