Bangkok - Getting Around

The ‘Tuk Tuk’ – a motorised three wheeled mini taxi – is the classic way to get around. In downtown Bangkok they’re everywhere. Always try to barter the price down, and try to avoid stopping at the driver’s ‘recommended’ shops along the way if you can. Motorcycle hire outfits are everywhere and, while it does look alluring, be wary. Roads (and road etiquette) here are fraught with dangers for the unprepared. Don’t even think of hiring a car, unless it’s to get out of the city and visit far flung places. Taxis are a safer bet – especially as new, metered ones clearly display the fare as you’re travelling. If your taxi’s not metered, establish a price before you set off. Expect to pay around 80B for a mile or so.

Buses

Buses (Sawngthaew) in Bangkok are cheap, although timetables are non-existent. Hold your bags in front of you to stop any chance of pick pocketing. Crowded and uncomfortable, they’re still the best option to get to Chinatown and the livelier nightlife areas. By far the most comfortable way to criss-cross the city is to take the SkyTrain, an aerial rail network that whisks you through the congestion with ease.

Trains

Trains run from 6am to midnight and fares are around 10-40B for a short hop. The underground Subway’s one line stops at the Thailand Cultural Centre and connects to the SkyTrain.
