The best way is to go to the offical taxi rank and take a metered taxi to Sukhumvit. Approx 400 baht.

Any other way and it will be more expensive.

Hi Baksy,

A gentle notation to you that your haphazard guesswork on the proper spelling for BKK Airport is way off the mark.

Meter is always better, never trust a taxi offering you a flat rate. Taxi will cost you no more than 400 baht including airport fees and tolls to most place in the city from Suvarnabhumi Airport. Ignore all others in the airport terminal offering taxi services. Go to the outside of the arrival building on the first floor (one floor down from arrivals) you’ll see a “Public Taxi” desk, only use them. Tell the dispatcher your destination. He will give you a slip of white paper. Hold onto it, do not give it to the driver, because it has instructions on what to do in the unlikely event of any problem. The dispatcher will give another part of the form to the driver, and should ensure that the driver knows how to get to your destination.

Get your taxi from the Public Taxi desks on the first floor. The taxis picking up there are registered and are supposed to use the meter. The desk clerks will tell the driver where to go in Thai. (Meter is cheaper.) Keep the form you get that identifies the taxi and how to report a bad driver. If you get a taxi dropping off at departures, all things being the same, you would only save the 50 baht surcharge for this random unregistered taxi ride. If the police don't stop you! Or the taxi driver doesn't stop half way and want you to adjust your fare price!

Read some of the thousand posts on "taxi from airport" that are on this forum. Read the FAQ's on the side. There are many posts on using taxis in the city too. - Read some of them! Many of the posts advise you to have small bills and in the city coins to pay taxi drivers. Good info on this forum if you take the time to do a little research.

Arriving during the day hours, don't mind carrying your own bags, Airport Rail Link is available up to midnight. Only 45 baht to Phaya Thai with City Line. Switch to the Skytrain for your cheap ride to Nana Skytrain stop. Walk to Sukhumvit Soi 2 for your hotel.

Pull up your hotel website and familiarize yourself with the map. This way you will know roughly where your hotel is located.
