  • BTS Skytrain

    Bangkok Transportation

    I used the BTS skytrain which is found to be a super, cheaper, comfortable and a fast mode of transportation to avoid the heavy traffic in Bangkok. They are fully A/C and with sufficient seating/standing capacity. Try using them while in Bangkok for shorter distances.

  • Taxis

    Bangkok Transportation

    There are meant to be 200,000 taxis in BKK. That's a lot of cabs. So it stands to reason that there are going to be some "bad" experiences based on numbers alone. I travel to BKK and other provinces 2-3 times a year, so I have picked up a few tips. You can't pick and choose your taxi at the airport because of the process involved, but, if the...

  • Taxis / Song-taews / Baht-buses

    Pattaya Transportation

    You do not have a choice as all the taxi quote you Baht 200 anywhere you go in Pattaya. So we gave up flagging taxi and start to take Baht Bus. They are quite convenience. We took Baht Bus from Bus terminal in North Pattaya to Jomtien Beach. They charge us 50 Baht per person but they only leave the bus terminal when the bus is full (12 pax). They...

  • Canal & River boats

    Bangkok Transportation

    While there are many boats traveling up and down the Chao Phraya, most piers also has a ferry that crosses the river for a very small fee. It is definitely a good idea to take advantage of this ferry. There are some fascinating temples on the other side. The ferry is only 3 baht each way. You can't beat the price! Inside each pier is a small booth...

  • Walking around

    Pattaya Transportation

    As my hotel (Flipper Lodge Hotel in Soi 8) is centrally located, I can do most of my transfers in Pattaya on foot. I just love to stroll on the great walkway along Beach road. Like this you walk all the time along the sea and the sandy beach. And it is a nice walk, if you walk all the way from the old pier near the Siren Beer bar complex till the...

The bus didn’t stop inside the terminal, so you need to ask to be reminded by the bus stewardess or the passenger. Although there was no single person...

    Bangkok Transportation

    The train runs only to Nong Khai, near the border, from where you change to a bus. you could also go by bus (either via Nong Khai or direct, more expensive), but the train is more comfortable (sleeper) or cheaper (seat) than the bus.

    We tried MRT on our way to reach Patpong road from Ashok station. Traveling with MRT is also pleasant, as we didn’t have to get stuck in the traffic. Similar to the sky train, fare is printed in the press button, and you only need to select your station destination.

The best paid for map I've got is the "B&B City Streets - Bangkok" published by Berndtson &...
