Bangkok has 2 airports. The first one is Suvarnabhumi Airport (or is known as Bangkok Airport, BKK). It is Bangkok’s main airport (Well, it is actually located in Samut Prakan Province). The second one is Don Muang Airport which is another international airport that now is used by many low-cost airlines.
Sukhumvit is the name of a major road in Thailand. It starts from Bangkok, crosses several provinces in Thailand such as Samut Prakan, Chonburi, Rayong, and ends at Trat. Well, when talking about Sukhumvit Area, it usually means the areas in Bangkok and the popular area for expatriates and tourists are from Soi1 to Soi 63.
If you are flying to Bangkok and want to know the taxi fare from the airports to Sukhumvit Road, this post is for you. Since Sukhumvit is a long road, in this post I will estimate the fare from the airports to Sukhumvit Soi 24 ( The Emporium and The Emquartier Shopping Center). If you are going to stay the other Sois around, the fare shall not be much different. Besides, the fare in this post is not included tollway fee and does not consider the traffic congestion.
From Suvarnabhumi Airport to Sukhumvit Soi 24, the taxi fare is 257 baht.
From Don Muang Airport to Sukhumvit Soi 24, the taxi fare is 191 baht.
Last but not least, please bear in mind that if you take a taxi from Bangkok Airport, you will be charged additionally 50 baht. So, the fare from Suvarnabhumi Airport to Sukhumvit should be around 307 baht. And, the fare from Don Muang Airport to Sukhumvit should be around 241 baht.
Hope this post gives you an idea of the taxi fare in Bangkok and helps you plan your trip budget.
P.S. The mobile application that I use to calculate the fare is called “Thai Taxi Fare Calculator”. It is available on Android.
