What time will you arrive? If you arrive after midnight, taxi will be your only option.

Otherwise, it seems the Airport Express train is the best way to go.

You get off at Makkasan and go to the Petchburi MRT station. Than take the MRT to Hualomphong MRT Station

Make absolutely sure that if you ever take a taxi from the airport they put the meter on before they start moving.
Don't believe them when they tell you 500 baht or 600 baht to Bangkok. It is absolutely not true.
You have to pay 50 baht at the desk to go in a Taxi Que from the airport arrival floor, any Taxi that tried to charge a fixed price instead of a meter get out and go to the desk to complain. Many travelers don't know or don't complain and that is why it happens so much these days.

Or if you want to be savvy, when you walk out of your arrivals area go back upstairs to the departure floor, and grab a taxi that is dropping someone off. No extra fees to pay and they are usually very happy to catch another customer without having to go back down to the que. DO this discreetly or they will stop it...

Maybe your information is a little outdated and the thread is really old anyway.

When you catch a Taxi at arrival you have to pay nothing at the counter. Just tell them where you wanna go and they give you a bunch of paper you hand out to the driver. The driver will go by meter. Since 2 years nobody is aksing at the airport for the 450 baht anymore. The driver will ask you if you wanna go by tollway. If you agree then either the driver pay ahead or he ask you for money for the toll. Either way at the end of the journey you pay the rate on the meter, plus 50 baht airport fee and the tollway fee.

by the way, as far as I know they don't charg the 50 baht and Suvarnabhumi, only at Don Muang I think they still do.

This is so far my experience, the last trips from Suvarnabhumi I never payd the 50 Baht extra.

Maybe if you pick up a taxi at departure they will try to cheat you and sell you the 450 Baht ride. If you go by meter and traffic is low the fare is around 300 to 350 Baht all in.

Is AE 4 Bus still up to date going to Hualamphong station from BKK Suvarnabhumi? Is it still 150 baht? Until what time is the last trip?

Because i'll be arriving in BKK Suvarnabhumi at 11:50PM, is bus AE4 still available or the last option would be taxi?I need to catch the 05:55 am train from hualamphong station going to Aranyaprathet and will be visiting Siem Reap too.If you could give me some advice and details when it comes to fare,transpo and schedule.

Thanks in advance.!!!

As far as I know, do the BUS-Lines on Level1 not exist anymore.
Please check-out the GOONISTIK-Post (13.12.2010)with AIRPORT EXPRESS TRAIN info.
Starting from the Ground-Floor to MAKASSAN. Interchange with MRT there (a little bit to walk, not recommandable with too much luggage. Backpack however no problem!) Tickets alt. ?
Ckeck-out the fares in the net.

TAXI 75 Bath Highway Fee + approx. 225 Bath Meter.

Thanks a lot Fettnoi72.

Because I'm scared to get a taxi because as what I've read there's a lot of driver who will give you a high rate. so I'm thinking what's the best transport I could use to go to Hualamphong station since i'll be arriving late around 11:50 Pm.If taxi the most that they can charge me is around 300-350 Baht including the toll fee right?

Don't be afraid of Taxi drivers. I take them regularly and never had a bad experience.

Go to the official taxi cue. Dont't remember which level, but just follow the signs or check on the official airport website. It is on arrival level, don't take one from departure level if you feel unsafe. Cue in outside and take a ticket from the taxi counter. Then the taxi driver will guide you to his car. Just to be on the safe side, tell him with taxi meter. But anyway, he must turn on his taxi meter. You are quite safe, since you have the paper form you got on the counter with his name and license. Never had any problems with the drivers. They all use taxi meter. Might be different if you just catch a Taxi at departure level.

You have to pay him the highway toll at the toll gates and the standard taxi rate. So if you have no traffic jam, it should be 300 to 350 Baht. I usually go to Asok, there is always a jam on the intersection going on Sukh. The area around Hualamphong is highly congested too. So maybe you have to pay 400 Baht.

If you arrive 11:50 PM, it might be difficult with Airporttrain and MRT. Check when the last MRT leaves Makasan. It can be 1:30 or 2 AM until you arrive at makasan. Anyway, going with luagage in MRT is no fun, because they make security checks. If the guard is bored you might unpack your whole backpack. Seen once at Hualamphong MRT station. And changing at night with luagage at Makasan is not recommended.

Good luck and have fun
