Taxi Cab: Taxi cabs can be found around any airport or public location. If you walk up to a taxi parking area and there is a row of taxi cabs go to the front vehicle first. The price varies but can be expensive at times. The weekend taxi fees are generally more expensive than the fees on a weekday. If you can avoid using a taxi cab I would recommend it. If you are relatively pleased with the service provided by the cab driver a one or two EUR tip would be sufficient.

Booking a Train Ticket is Easy – Since February, 2009, it’s now possible to book all train tickets online in advance. So, no need to even go down to the Hua Lamphong trains station to buy one. If you plan on taking a long-distance express train (i.e.: Bangkok to Singapore or Malaysia), it is best to book in advance as the trains get booked up pretty quickly. You can book online up to 60 days in advance, though, so no problem there. For most local trains though, (trips within a few hours of Bangkok), it’s not really necessary to book in advance. Just show up an hour or so before your journey and buy a ticket at Hua Lamphong train station.
