Transportation in Bangkok

Buses

Plentiful and cheap are the regular non-air buses. Air-conditioned buses and microbuses are only a fraction more expensive. A bus route map is available at most hotels, bookshops and the Tourism Authority of Thailand's office on New Phetchaburi Road.

Subway

Opened in 2004, the city’s new subway system (MRTA) connects many of the top tourist attractions with accommodation areas, markets, and the business district, The trains run from 6 a.m. to midnight, daily.

 

BTS Skytrain

Bangkok Mass Transit Sys tem (BTS) provides safe, cbeap and rapid  rides to Popular areas or Bangkok. The service is excellent and the stations and trains are immaculately clean. There are two lines, intersecting at Siam Square. It is the best way to avoid trafflic and pollution.

Taxis

Hotel taxis have set rates. Street taxi known as "Taxi Meters" charge. Minimum of 35 baht for the first 2  kilometres and 5 baht for every following kilometer.
Tel. 1661, 1681


River Taxis

Even more unusual, though equally convenient, river taxis ply the Chao Phraya River. While some are just cross river ferries, others serve many piers on both banks and cover a route that goes up as far as the northern suburb of Nonthaburi.

Tuk-Tuk

These 3-wheelers are popular for short journeys. Fares must be bargained in advance.  They are not much cheaper than taxis and perhaps the odd mode of transportation is the attraction.

Motorcycle Taxis

Bangkok is such a busy city with many traffic jams that everyone wants to get to their destination on time and as fast as they could which is why motorcycle taxis are so popular. The fare depends on the distance but is about the same as a taxi.
