Anyone had lobang for cheap cab services from airport to hotel in Bangkok? I am taking budget airline to Bangkok thus had to take own transport to hotel. I tried last year taking a taxi provided at the airport which is 550 baht. Any other lobang that you gals out there had tried before pls share. Thanks in advance.
any things U wan to share during your recent trip to bkk? I gg up on the 10th next mth, last visit was in year 2004, hopefully not too many changes except for airport, new shopping ctr, tax changes, etc. as compared over the past 4 years when I was there.
Hi Acneery, I tot we can still go out of the airport to a designated taxi stand like the old airport, write down the hotel/destination?? anyone can share the new cab booking there now? thanks.
I am not sure also.... mine is directly outside the airport. There was a table and people approaching us asking if we need taxi to hotel. We told him our hotel & was told 550 baht and written on paper. You mean should walk all the way out of the airport and take a cab out of nowhere ah? I saw many people taking their cab service so tot that it should be quite standard rate.
So where should I go to get the cheaper cab service?
Yeah.... just came back from bkk.
U gals can go to the departure hall which is one level up and take the cab. They are not allowed to park there so u must chop chop go up and ride. Make sure they go in meter and there will be a surcharge which is 75baht for my case. From wat i understand, the 75baht is for the troll feed
Hope this helps =)
Hey mine encounter that time seems like yours. Also at arrival hall but cant rem which exit and a table outside. But I told them my hotel and they quote me 550 bht. So its not standard rate can negotiate to ask for meter instead isit?
So conclusion is that at either departure or arrival hall is the same but must ask for meter?
If you are looking at Doraemon stuff let me suggest to you this entire shop which sells Doraemon..everything is Doraemon! Infact Siam Square does have 2 shop selling all kinds of stuff like Hello Kitty, Melody, Pooh etc.. not much of Doraemon tho..
I do not know the exact road of this Doraemon BUT its at Pratunam its not directly in Pratunam market area, i found this shop when i was walking back to Baiyoke Sky Hotel, let me check with my sis the receipt of the restaurant that we ate cos we ate at the rest. next to this Doramemon shop..alternative you can find it at Plantium Fashion Mall 5th storey! They sell all kinds of D stuff ranging from car accessory to toilet accessory etc..
am sorry that the receipt of this restaurant does not have address printed..it only have the amount of the food that we ate..those simple type sigh..
not Pratunam Fashion Mall its Plaintium Fashion Mall keke..Oh when was the last time u went? i went last month there seems to be more of D items added..what is it that you are looking for? I am going to Hongkong next week maybe i can be of any help...what's the blog addy that u mentioned maybe i go take a look..
I think i saw that blog..its about a solo traveller to Bangkok rite..the shop is in the middle of Siam Sq rite? But last month i was there, there was no Doraemon shop liao..only left with 2-3 shop selling a mixture of character le..cos i comb the entire Siam Sq but found nothing much of character stuff cos me going to for hk haha..
As for that shop i found hor, unless i direct you how to go else er..how to find the street name.. K u must be at the main entrance of Baiyoke sky, than u walk straight turn right when u see second lane, than go all the way straight, u see this small shopping centre inside nothing uptrend just those normal clothes u see in chinatown opp this shopping there is a coffee shop..if u see that coffee shop opp this 2 storey shopping than correct liao, cos this entire Doraemon shop i told u is just 2 shops away from this shopping! err u get me?
Had wanted to stay at Baiyoke Suite during my last trip to BKK last oct
But ltr changed my hotel coz read of terrible comment on that hotel. Such as cockroaches n lizard crawling over ur head in the middle of the nite. Rm very smelly n dirty. Shower tap water very muddy etc
Well, i guess there r still sum positive guests whom had stayed there b4 but i rather spend more than to regret
hey there...we juz came back from BKK last week & stayed at samran place too...cheap & clean but dun have too high expectation...we were too ripped by the silly cab driver even thou he on his meter so luck plays a part...
platinum mall is definitely worth going but do note that as they are wholesalers...their opening hours are from 10-7pm onli....wholesale price given for 3 pcs & above so not much bargaining allowed but stuff are much cheaper than MBK...we enjoy PM more than MBK tis trip...=)
I am going to bangkok n next week, will be staying at Grand Millennium Sukhumvit. Anyone can recommend any place for nice food and good shopping. Would be good if can provide the train/metro stations nearest to that place as it is the 1st time I am going.
I am just back from bangkok. Thanks for your advice and I got the cab at Gate C at public taxi stand outside and paid 350 baht to hotel and from hotel to airport is 280 baht which is much cheaper than my previous trip lor..... I stayed at Baiyoke Boutique Hotel this time.
this time round i stayed at Centre Point..the hotel is very convenient and its quite new and big..Executive Service Apartment Hotel will security link to your room and it comes with a living and kitchen area..
