At the airport, outside of the International gates, there are kiosks for DTAC (blue colour), AIS (Green colour) and True Move (Red colour). Try to get your SIM card in a branded store of the provider, at airports or in malls or in 7-Eleven kiosks where you pay the original price. Many independent sellers will only sell you the SIM with a surcharge like a tourist SIM of 299 THB for 399 THB.
