    Like in Many Cities in the world, Bangkok has it's share of Toll Ways and Expressways and Highways with tolls and when you are riding the tour vans going around, the price of the tolls going to the various tour destinations is included in the tour price. the only problem will be when riding taxis and when you want to reach your destination fast, then the tollways are a good option but you must pay the tollway fee of the taxi besides the taxi fare! tollway fee starts at 25 baht for short distances and the average tollway fee around bangkok is 25 to 55 baht for taxis and that you must pay the tollway fee at the toll booth once you arrive at the toll booth.

    according to wikipedia:

    Thailand

    Most of the toll roads in Thailand are either within Greater Bangkok or originated from Bangkok. They are called expressways, tollways, and motorways. Two government agencies under the Ministry of Transport, namely the Expressway Authority of Thailand (EXAT) and the Department of Highways (DoH), own networks of toll roads. Some are operated by the agencies themselves; others are operated by private concessionaires. EXAT is in charge of Chaloem Mahanakhon Expressway, Si Rat Expressway, Chalong Rat Expressway, Udon Ratthaya Expressway, Burapha Withi Expressway and Kanchanphisek Outer Ring Road (southern section). DoH is in charge of Uttraphimuk Tollway (formerly Don Mueang Tollway), Motorway No. 7 (Bangkok-Chonburi), and Motorway No. 9 (Kanchanphisek Outer Ring Road - eastern section).

    Airport to City Center: The journey into town from Don Muang International Airport can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours(gulp!), depending on Bangkok’s notorious (and not to mention - montrous!) traffic. However, the new tollway & expressway have indeed cut journey times considerably.

    Airport limousines charge 500 Bahts. Another and fuss-free alternative is to hop onto a cab (you can find cab stands adjacent to the glass doors of each terminal). There is a 50 Bahts ‘airport pick up’ surcharge in addition to the Don Muang Tollway fee of 30 Bahts and Expressway fee of 40 Bahts.

    If you are already familiar with Bangkok and are not carrying too much luggage, a cheap mode of transportation is to take the shuttle ‘limousine’ bus that will whisk you straight to the main hotel & business areas at every 30 minute intervals for a mere 70 Bahts.

    Remember these shuttle bus routes:

    A1 goes to Silom Rd.

    A2 to Banglamphu.

    A3 to Sukhumvit Rd.

    Oh, and nobody in their right sense of mind ever takes the train from the airport! :-))
