Taxi is the most convenient transport mode, while you wander around in Bangkok. But, it is the most expensive one too. If you are planning to visit Bangkok and you would like to know the taxi fare between the airport and Pratunam, this post is for you.
First of all, you have to know that Bangkok has 2 airports which are Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK) and Don Muang Airport (DMK). The first one is a new one and is located in Samut Prakan Province. The second one is the old one and is located in Bangkok Province. The taxi fares from these 2 airports to Pratunam are definitely different.
Pratunam is a popular shopping district in Bangkok and many tourists choose to stay in this area while visiting Bangkok.
In this post, I calculate the taxi fare from both airports to Pratunam Market, a big wholesale garment market in Thailand. The tollway fee and traffic congestion are not included as fare factors; only distance is considered.
From Suvarnabhumi Airport to Pratunam Market, the taxi fare is 251 baht.
From Don Muang Airport to Pratunam Market, the taxi fare is 175 baht.
Well, if you plan to take a taxi from the airport, please aware that you will be charged 50 baht more. So, the fare from Suvarnabhumi Airport should be around 301 baht. And, the fare from Don Muang Airport should be around 225 baht.
P.S. the taxi fare in this post is calculated from a mobile application named “Thai Taxi Fare Calculator”. If you want to use it to plan your transportation budget, you can download it. It is available on Android.
