how to get there: Public taxis are the most popular way to get into town, and the most convenient in terms of door-to-door service.
Ignore all touts in the airport terminal offering taxi services. Outside the arrival building on the first floor (one floor down from arrivals) you’ll see a “Public Taxi” desk. Tell the dispatcher your destination. He will give you a slip of white paper. Hold onto it, do not give it to the driver, because it has instructions on what to do in the unlikely event of any problem. The dispatcher will give another part of the form to the driver, and should ensure that the driver knows how to get to your destination (but you may wish to confirm this). Ask driver to run KM before you get into taxi. Price: 300 bath include toll fee. If they don't agree, just skip to another taxi
