Getting from Suvarnabhumi International Airport to Kasetsart University

Upon your arrival in Bangkok at Suvarnabhumi Airport (pronounced “Sou-wan-na-poom”), after you’ve passed through immigration/passport control and baggage retrieval, you have the option of taking either a taxi or the Airport Rail Link. Kasetsart University is located about 40km from the airport and taking a taxi along the expressway is your fastest and most convenient option.

Taxi

Location: First floor

Take a ticket from the taxi queue and proceed to your taxi. The fare is charged according to the distance traveled, plus a surcharge of 50 Baht. If you use the expressway, you have to pay for the express toll fee.  Your total journey will cost between 300 and 400 baht, depending on the traffic conditions.
Note: In the case that a taxi driver refuses to turn on his meter and insists on a fixed fare, unless you feel  satisfactory with the fixed price, we advise you to get out immediately and note down his license plate. You can report him to the passenger hotline at phone no.1584. It is compulsory for a taxi driver to turn on his meter during all passenger trips within the Bangkok metropolitan area. A taxi driver’s refusal to comply will result in him being fined and suspended.
