Bangkok Travel and Transport

Bangkok is city with many means of transportation, the standard bus and taxi of course are always available, and you can also travel by two rail methods, the elevated BTS sky train which was has been described as giving a 'Bladerunner' feel to the neon lit city at night and the relatively new MRTA metro subway system which promises to put Bangkok firmly in place as a modern city. On top of all this you can travel around Bangkok by boat along the main Chao Phraya River and by the canals with one of its surprisingly fast Canal boats which gives a great eye opening view of Bangkok’s waterside life with people still using the canals for their daily needs.

Getting around a country whose capital city is described as having some of the worst traffic jams in the world can be awkward at first, but with time and experience you can learn how to avoid the worst of the rush hour traffic and choose the quickest and easiest method of transport every time. It's not simply a matter of having a map of Bangkok and knowing where A and B is and jumping into a taxi as often during peak rush hour this is the slowest form of transport and a Canal boat or the subway / sky train will serve you much better.

Bangkok National Bus Services

Ask most people in Bangkok and they will tell you that Bangkok has only three bus terminals but in actual fact it has five, though three of them are all at the same location of Mochit (Mor Chit) and just have different phone numbers for bus travel information hence the confusion. If the journey is long distance then the buses will leave either during the morning or late at night for the overnight journeys, not during the daytime, this is so passengers arrive at their destination at a...

Bangkok Taxi's and Tuk Tuk's

bangkok-taxiTaxi's

Taxis are everywhere in Bangkok , at night the city often seems full of them with no other vehicles on the road. If you are travelling outside the rush hour, at night for example then taxis are by far the easiest, quickest and most comfortable form of public transport with the rate starting automatically at 35 baht, and increasing 5 baht per every 2 Kilometres with a little time surcharge if stuck in traffic.

All licensed taxis have a black and yellow number plate, not the white and...

Bangkok City Bus Services

yellow_busBuses are the cheapest form of public transport In Bangkok and this probably makes it amongst one of the cheapest bus services in the world. A famous expatriate columnist once claimed that if you knew the Bangkok bus system then you could travel around the city at any time in the day faster than using a taxi. It certainly seems true to an extent as using their size you will often see a bus barging it's way through the Bangkok traffic, but knowing the routes is another thing completely!

Bangkok Express and Canal Boat Services

Bangkok was once known as the Venice of the East and for good reason as it was a city crisscrossed by many canals and though many of these have been filled in, the canals and main Chao Phraya River of Bangkok still offer many waterways for boat travel. The main piers for boats along the river are within easy access to the main riverside hotels and one of the most popular piers is Saphan Taksin which connects with the BTS sky train line allowing even better travel access to and from Bangkok....
