Finally, Uber launches in Bangkok

Uber Bangkok
The long anticipation and speculation has come to an end. Uber is finally available in Bangkok. This is just a soft launch for now, with limited cars available.Back in October of last year, we reported that Uber posted job listings as it prepared to launch in the Thai capital. According to its official blog, Uber has officially launched in Bangkok as of today.

Uber car prices start at 45 Baht (US$1.50), which is reasonable considering a normal cab starts at 35 Baht (US$1). But Uber’s minimum fare is 75 Baht (US$2.30). From downtown to the airport will cost about 1,000 Baht (US$35).

With this launch, Bangkok is the 17th city in Asia Pacific to have the service.
