How to get to the Airplane Graveyard
The Airplane Graveyard is a bit off the center, in the Hua Mak district. There are several ways to get to the Airplane Graveyard. One of them is going with a Khlong boat.

Possibility number 2, no matter where you start, you treat yourself to a taxi. It's easy to say, but you should not rely on every taxi driver to know this place, even if it's still so exotic and you think that's what everyone needs to know. And depending on if you have now found a driver who knows the place and would go there, depending on how far the approach is, you should possibly call a fixed price before the ride OR you take as an orientation the cost table for the possible to driving kilometers and you calculate a price, which should coincide with the kilometer prices of the taxi rides.
