Hi everyone, Im leaving for Bangkok first thing in the morning, just wondered what people have paid to get from the airport to Khao San rd, whether it be by Taxi, tuk tuk or bus. I was in Thailand last year and landed at the old don muang airport where i got charged about 800baht for this journey which i now know was a rip off. So what did you guys pay? And whats a fair price?

Taxi - expect to pay 250-300Baht. Get one from the stand-not one of the touts hanging around inside looking for people to rip off!!
There is also an express bus from the new airport, the AE2 goes directly to Khao san Road and costs 150Baht and doesn't take much longer than a taxi. I'd recommend this as the best way to get to and from the airport.
Good luck, it's not like the old airport. Especially if you arrive very late at night. There are no choices but the overpriced taxi stand. you are at their mercy.
Get to the 2nd floor and take a free shuttle bus to the other terminal to catch the AE bus.
I hope my reply is not too late. If it is then I suppose the information will be good for others.
I payed 34 bahts.
I got the free shuttle bus from Suvarnabhumi airport to the other airport and then took the 556 bus to the Khao San Road.
