Arriving groggy in a far-away place with no knowledge of the local transportation links can be daunting. Do you get a train, bus, rickshaw or a taxi? It's always hard to know which represents the best value and won't add significant travel time to your journey. With that in mind, below are some tips when travelling to some of our favourite destinations.
Malta International Airport
The best way to get from the airport is to get a metered taxi. Ignore the touts and follow the "public taxi" signs at the airport after going through customs. You'll get to a desk outside the airport building, where you'll need to give the address of your hotel and they will then write it in Thai on a bit of paper and give it to a driver (the drivers are normally queuing, waiting at the desk). There's an automatic charge of 35 bahts, plus a 50-bahts airport service charge. On top of that, you'll need to pay the fare (200-300 bahts) and the highway tolls (70 baht).
