Taxi Recommendations

Post by Charlieb » March 17, 2017, 11:56 am

Can someone recommend an honest taxi service if there is such an animal? :D
Are there any that will actually use the meter?

I live about 6 or 7 kilometers outside the ring road on Nong Khai Highway and would like to take a taxi at times, especially if I plan on a few drinks. I asked one that want 600 Baht just to go to Phosi Road and Ring Road intersection. Is that fair? I don't know.

Maybe they are charging me for the trip from downtown bus station to my house to pick me up since that is where most of the taxis seem to be?

I don't mind a fair price but don't like to be ripped off being a fahlong

I must have met a real rip off artist the first time

I just got a Taxi from the Complex to my home 6 or 7 Km outside ring road toward Nong Khai for 200 Baht. A great price I think.

Seems like a pretty good guy and a regular taxi not a private car.

If anyone is interested his name is: Amornpong Tel: 083-2879971
