I booked this trip as a single.  I was wondering if any one else is going alone?  I booked the air with Delta so I do not have transfers to and from the airport in Bangkok.  Which is the best deal to get to the hotel, a taxi or GCT transfers?

 I belive that you can do the transfer with GCT, even though you are not flying with them. Check with them to at least get a comparison price.

You may also contact your hotel by email and ask if they provide a pick up service--for a fee of course. We are doing this trip Dec31, 2013. We will already be there because we are taking a trip prior to that one (different tour co). On the first trip, the arrival hotel will pick us up for $35.00. I have been told this is a good price and a good way of arranging the transportation as there has been much fraud going on with the cab drivers at the airport. Never get into a cab without first negotiationg the price. Good Luck and please post your comments on the trip when you return.
