Bangkok is a popular destination among Singaporeans and so, flying to Bangkok is easy due to the wide array of choices available. The best is to take the first flight out and last flight back. This way, the time in Bangkok is being maximised.

Do you know that sometimes you can get cheaper prices by doing Mix & Match? This is especially true for Budget Airlines as their prices varies. What do I mean by Mix & Match. E.g. Fly to Bangkok by Jetstar and Return to Singapore by Scoot.

Well, just sign up for the newsletters via the different airlines and be informed when there are promotions ongoing.

In Bangkok, there are 2 airports. Survarnabhumi is the International Airport and it connects to other parts of the world via major full service carriers. Don Mueang is the Domestic Airport and it houses budget carriers such as Air Asia and Scoot and it is convenient for passengers who intends to transit to other parts of Thailand.

When flying back to Singapore and if you have lots of luggage, I would suggest you to book a MPV Taxi via GrabTaxi app. Don’t ever try to book them yourselves as it will easily cost double of what you pay by GrabTaxi. I have written an article about it, read more about it > GrabTaxi in Bangkok.

  1. Will be arriving into Don Muang around 4.30 p.m. What would be the quickest way to our accomodation on Phaholyothin Rd Samsen Nai Phayathat considering the traffic at that time. Cheers

  2. I will be arriving at Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK) on 9/1/2015 at 17.40 and will be taking the city line train to Ratchaprarop station. Is this the Ratchathewi (N1) station May I know whether I am able to get a cab to Citin Pratunam or please advise on how to get there. There are only 2 of us ladies.
    Thank you.

    1. Hi Marcia, just alight at Ratchaprarop station if you are going to Pratunam. You should be able to get the cab there but the cab will need to turn one big round in order to reach your hotel. If you all don’t mind walking, from the station there is actually a shortcut through the fence to Baiyoke Boutique. From there, it will be easier to reach your hotel. Alternatively, just walk along the main street into Baiyoke area. But if your luggage is very big, then taking a cab will be easier for you.

        1. Hi! Metered fare should be around 200-300 baht depending on traffic. there is 50baht airport surcharge too. if you decide to take the tollway (to avoid jam), you will have to pay for the tollway too.

  3. it should cost about 300 baht including tolls. grabtaxi will definitely on meter but the airport taxis usually the driver will persuade you to pay a fixed fee after you board.

  4. Hi! I am reaching BKK tomorrow at around 1.45pm. How much will it costs to take a taxi to our hotel at Park Plaza Soi 18? How long will it take? Thanks.

  5. Hi, taxi should be about 300 baht. If you take the train, you will have to do transfers and walking from the station to hotel takes about 15 minute. it’s not so convenient if you have big luggages though

  6. There should be 2 tolls of 50 baht + 70 baht if I remember correctly. But just buffet about 100 to 150 baht extra for tolls to avoid the jam.
