We did the south end of Chaweng Strip (Poppies) to the airport and was charged 300 baht by a driver that we had flagged down the day before (June 07). There should be a good selection at the airport and aim for around this mark.

We used meter taxis several times for getting about Chaweng and prices were always the same no matter which direction you were going. We canvassed several drivers for the cost of going to the airport and all were the same. The tour operators in chaweng also had their rates on boards in the shop windows and once again they were consistently priced.

I understand your concern about the possibility of being exploited as a new arrival at the airport but we found that there were plenty of drivers competing for your custom. Our Hotel charged 600 baht to collect us which we now realise was twice the going rate.
