Ya you are totally correct. Bangkok’s traffic is notorious in town city. It’s very easy to get caught up in traffic any time especially in Siam area and waste a lot of valuable time in your journey. However, Bangkok has numerous transport options available; it is surprisingly easy to navigate your way around. The BTS Lines, MRT Lines and Airport Link City Line rail 🚆 🚆🚆system are connecting many popular attractions, restaurants, shopping areas, nightlife spots and accommodations. The rail system across the congested streets, help you to avoid the traffic jam and move around the city in air-conditioned comfort. NOTE: Easy to say three lines are three different companies So when you want transfer to the other different line you must exit and enter to another swing gate. Various ferry and boat services operate along the Chao Phraya River 🚤🚤🚤, can be used to explore many historic sites and attractions at the riverside. NOTE: Note: the vessel will use color to divide the destination and on-board announcements give you plenty of notice for each stop.
Some time, you can choose the colorful taxicabs 🚖🚖 🚖and Tuk-Tuks which appear on virtually every corner at almost any time. It most suitable for your whom wants to the place distance is far and rail systems haven’t arrived. It have two types of taxicabs, first type is same as Tuk- tuks, always arrange the price before starting a journey to avoid any nasty surprises on arrival. Second type is taxicabs use as meter. Most important thing is using a map or GPS to know for is drivers taking longer routes than necessary and heading in the right direction. NOTE: Best for go to main road for take the Tuk-tuks and Taxicabs and don’t take taxicabs and Tuks-tuks which is park in the narrow path because they would chance the higher price. While buses 🚍🚍🚍 can be held up in traffic jams, and the routes can be rather circuitous, they are ideal for budget travelers who want to pay as little as possible for transportation. In the Bangkok, you can jump into motorbike taxis 🛵🛵🛵 for bring you go to your destination while the drivers is wear coloured vests. But make sure your destination is shorter route and it is less than 2km.
