    Favorite thing: Hi, I have been there with another girl in Nov,2009. It is a big and nice city. Suggestions for safe are not to take Thuk Thuk ( a vehicle for transfer), and do not believe strangers.( When you are for direction, they often tell you it is closed and will suggest to you to another place, then you will miss the right place and have to buy something you do not need).
    We remember in heart the above, so we have a pleasant trip in Bangkok.

    I will suggest one hotel later, because I could not remember the actual name now.

    Favorite thing: These are more costly than the Airconditioned Taxi and accomodates less peoples and can not save you from the heavy rain or sizzeling heat and yes they do drive crazy like Bond Movie. If the Taxi cost TB40 Tuk Tuk ask for 60 for same distence, Taking it for fun or once in while is OK nit suiteable as regular mode of transport.

  • Don't take it or only take once

    Favorite thing: I will highly suggest you that you take taxi, rather than take Tuk-Tuks. Tuk-Tuks always charge you 50Bahts, but if your distance is not very far, you better take taxi. It just start 35 Bahts. All of them are air-conditioned. IT is good. But if it is a busy hour and there is traffic jam, you better to take it. Because if it is lower than 6 KM per hour, it will charge you one Baht per minute.

    Tut-tut

    Favorite thing: Riding the Tut-tut is the most unforgetable experience in Bangkok.
    They are cheap, convenient and fast. They managege to snake in and out of the heavy Bankok traffic with no problems at all

    Fondest memory: I am not actually the driver, I do not dare to try one of these things in a traffic like Bangkok ..

  • Take a tour in a Tuk-Tuk....

    by StretfordEnd Written Sep 8, 2002

    Favorite thing: Take a tour in a Tuk-Tuk. These little motor scooters with carriages built on are the quickest and cheapest way to get around, though the driving is erratic and the ride very bumpy.

    Fondest memory: Patpong. Sleazy, sweaty and can be a bit dodgy, yet unlike anything you will ever see anywhere else.

    Favorite thing: If you don't take the tuck tuck but walk through Bangkok you can find fantastic places such as that market on the picture.

    Favorite thing: Ride around the town in the local transportation: tuk tuks!

    Fondest memory: It became fairly exciting to ride in the tuk tuk once there was 6 inches of rain in the streets.
