Bangkok is one of the most popular places to visit in Thailand. If you are planning to explore many places there, of course you will need transportation. There are many kinds of transportation in Thailand that can be used, including bus, train, and taxi:
• Airport Rail Link (ARL) is transportation directly from Suvarnabhumi Airport to popular stops in Bangkok. At the airport, the entrance to the ARL service is located on the first floor. There are six stops on the link, covering a distance of 28 kilometers.
• The Sky Train and the MRT are the most used transportation in Bangkok, especially for foreign backpackers or locals. The traffic in Bangkok is notoriously bad, so this is a good way to avoid it! Please note, though, that not all tourism destinations can be reached by the sky train or the MRT, so check a map first. Also you can’t use sky train and MRT tickets at the same time. You need separate passes for each.
• Taxis in Thailand are reasonably priced. All marked taxis in Bangkok use meters, so you don’t need to barter over the price. One thing to consider with taxis is that most of the taxi drivers don’t understand English, so it’s important to have the place you’re going written down in Thai so you can show the driver.
• Bus is one of the cheapest transportation options in Bangkok. There are lot of buses, so they are rarely full and not crowded. The buses have their destination is written in Thai, so if you don’t understand Thai, you can go to the Transit Bangkok website for maps and routes. There are 2 kinds of buses in Bangkok: AC and non-AC.
• Tuk-Tuk is a type of traditional transportation in Thailand. Many Asian countries have similar types. For example, in Indonesia, a bajaj/bemo is like a tuk-tuk. It has 3 wheels and a similar shape. Tuk-tuks don’t have a standard price, so before you get in, barter with the driver to determine the price. Don’t take the first amount he says! Barter for a lower price. Tuk-tuks are a fun way to see the city.
• Chao Praya Express Boat is one of the main transportation options in Bangkok. Besides being free from traffic jam, the price is also cheap. The fare is the same, around 15 baht, no matter how far you’re going.
