Metered taxis are easy to spot and can be found all over the city. The reasonably inexpensive fare starts at 35THB and goes up in increments
depending on the distance in kilometers and time spent in traffic. A red light sign on the dashboard window indicates an unoccupied car. Always make sure the meter is turned on when entering the cab otherwise there is the possibility of being overcharged for the trip.
For destinations outside of Bangkok, it is possible to hire a taxi for 8 hours at a flat rate of 2,000THB (not including
fuel). For a trip to Ayutthaya round trip will cost 1,200THB including
2 hours at your destination. If you need more time, it is an additional 200THB per hour. You can call for a pick-up at 1681, and request a driver who can speak English.
