Bangkok's Don Muang airport is as busy
as any major international airport anywhere in the world
and there are flights leaving and arriving every minute.
A word of caution: The Bangkok airport has more than
its share of hustlers out to make a quick baht, who
often wear uniforms and tags that make them seem official.
They will try to get you to change your hotel to one
that pays them a large commission, perhaps claiming
your intended hotel is overbooked. They will hustle
you into overpriced taxis or limousines. Do not get
taken in. This is a genuine warning, not a 'competitors'

Airport - Limo When arriving in Bangkok International
look for the Airport Associate Limousine / Taxi counters.
There are two services operating out of the Airport,
the Airport Associate Limousine service or the Thai
Airway Limousine. The cars are generally clean and the
drivers reliable. The toll way for the highway is not
included but the expressway below it is. Ask for a bonus
card and for each 650 Baht you spend they will give
you a stamp, when you complete the card with a total
of 5 stamps, you will be entitled to a one way trip
in either direction free of charge (if you take the
return trip at 1,150 you will only get one stamp).
Airport - Taxi Taxi's are readily available. Only take
the taxi's which are in the official taxi queue and
only those that will show you the meter is working before
you get in. A ride from the airport to central downtown
should cost between 200/350 Baht.
