It's 700 baht, but it should be included in the price of your ticket.

Seems to me its one way or the other- either they include in your ticket price or they collect it at the airport. Has anyone recently had to pay it at the airport? I can't tell from my eticket whether its included.

It was included in the ticket I purchased about a year ago. The plan was that all departure taxes would be included in the ticket price by the time they moved to the new airport.

We didn't have to pay a departure tax at the new airport; it was definitely included in the ticket fare.

I came back 2nd week of December and tax was included in the ticket, purchased in October.
However, the $25 tax when leaving Cambodia was not included and was quite a surprise!

Thanks all- I believe we can safely say no departure tax at the new BKK airport!
