is it east to get taxi at 530am?

we fly to bangkok for a few days before going home. i can book a 8am or 1pm flight.

if i get the 8am flight is it easy to get a taxi at around 530am, and how long would it take to get to airport?

I would book a Taxi the day before. Agree on a price. It will be quicker that time of day. Trip is normally just under an hour.

play safe and book the taxi through the hotel.we have been let down by taxi drivers in the wee hours on several occasions.so it is better for the hotel to wake or replace them.

+1 for booking through the hotel for the exact same reason, especially for the 5:30 pickup as there will be no alternative available.

Our 5.30am driver didn't show, and the hotel staff got us a driver in 20 minutes. I'd be very surprised if anyone working at a hotel didn't have a friend or contact they can call for just such occasions.

I'd still definitely pre-book a driver. We book the return journey before leaving home, and it's about the same price as a taxi anyway.
