Thailand Transportation

  • BTS Skytrain

    Bangkok Transportation

    For most people this is the main city transport system, and it links most of the popular tourist destinations. The Skytrain runs high above the streets, and you must climb several floors to reach the track - if you are lucky there might be a escalator, but don't count on it. The ticket system is confusing, and requires that you only use 5 and 10...

  • Renting Cars and Drivers

    Phuket Transportation

    -Tariff says B4000 to Ao Nang, Krabi from Phuket - we were able to lowered it down to B2800 -If in group, better to take a rented car with driver - budget way to get to is via Bus from the terminal in Town

  • Train

    Chiang Mai Transportation

    Many people miss out on a wonderful experience by flying to Chiang Mai from Bangkok. The best choice is the overnight train, which is clean, safe, comfortable and fun. If you are a couple or a family with even numbered members I recommend the 1st class cabin. If you are traveling alone and/or don’t want to share a private cabin then 2nd class is...

  • Buses to Pattaya

You will find the ticket desk selling bus tickets. A one way ticket costs 134 baht per person and this includes luggage that should consist of one bag weighing 20kg max. ( They do have a sign up...

  • Minivans & Minibuses

    Hat Yai Transportation

    Since we do not know where we should buy our next ticket back to Bukit Kayu Hitam, so we took the van till the last stop near the Market. The van pick up place is near to Vitchusin Plaza (the tuk-tuk driver will know the place) so get the ticket for 57baht /person.

  • Taxis

    Bangkok Transportation

    Taxis are so cheap in Thailand I found myself tipping 50% or more, because I couldn't understand how they could make a living. One trip of about 8 kilometers took over an hour because of the horrendous traffic, and cost than 150 baht (about 4 euros). The traffic really is bad, though, and sometimes it feels that walking would be faster. You will...

  • Tuk Tuk

    Phuket Transportation

    If you are staying in Karon and want to go to Patong by Tuk Tuk here are a few tips 1) During low season you can get to Patong for 300 Baht (250 if you haggle really hard) 2) They will charge more, the more people you have so the line "my friends got it for 250baht yesterday" wont work. 3) Have small change because they will claim not to have...

  • Tuc Tuc & bikes

    Chiang Mai Transportation

    Like anywhere in Thailand, tuk-tuks are everywhere and are useful for getting around. All you need to do is wave them down (in a lot of cases they will actually ask you if you need a ride before you even consider it!) and tell them your destination. Very cheap way to get around and we negotiated a price before we left.

  • Taxis / Song-taews / Baht-buses

    Pattaya Transportation

    A recent addition to public transportation in Pattaya is yellow and blue air conditioned meter taxis. They are part of the same consortium that operates the baht buses. Although they have meters and are called meter taxis, you will quickly find that none of the drivers will use the meter. Thus, you must negotiate the fare for your intended...

  • Boats & Ferries

    Ko Samui Transportation

    It's possible to get a bus/ferry combo ticket to Krabi from Ko Samui. I booked mine through a travel agents in central Chaweng which cost 500 baht. I got picked up early in the morning from my hotel and we picked more people up and headed towards the ferry pier in Nathon. We then transferred onto an oldish looking bus that then took us south to...

  • Tuk-Tuks

    Hat Yai Transportation

    Tuk-tuk is a most common type of transportation while you are in Hat Yai. The driver know all the touriist spots and nighlife spots. You are advise to agree for a price, but I experience they request for extra 10 baht while reaching the destination. I choose to forget it to continue my journey. During this trip to Hat Yai, I have ride 6 time of...

  • Canal & River Boats

    Bangkok Transportation

    While not likely to be necessary, a trip on one of Bangkok's zippy Khlong Express boats is worth the experience. They barrel along the (somewhat disgusting) waters of Bangkok's narrow canals, churning up the green-brown water into a wide wake. The noise is incredible. Getting on and off the boats is not for the faint of heart - the gap between boat...

    Chiang Mai Transportation

    There are a cheap buses that travel to Bangkok from Chiang Mai which i have avoided for many years as once i was on one that broke down halfway to Bangkok. We were left on our own as the driver was in no position to refund our money and a replacement bus never arrived, so we ended up paying another fare on a regular bus to Bangkok. However on my...

  • Limousines from Bangkok Airport

    Pattaya Transportation

    Pattaya Taxi service is the easiest, cheapest car to Pattaya that I have found. It is easy to arrange, just send an email from their web page giving your name, arrival time and flight number. They take care of the rest. On the last trip, I used their service. I sent the required email and got a reply the next morning. When I arrived at 11:00 PM,...

  • Taxis

    Ko Samui Transportation

    Getting around Ko Samui is cheap and cheerful. Anything from around 100-250 bahts for short journeys. The taxi's are fun, jump on the back and away you go. Around Chaweng you'll never have trouble finding a taxi as they call out and honk their horn at you all day long! If you fancy a change there are also lots of mo-ped taxis, although I gave them...

  • Trains

    Hat Yai Transportation

    It seems that most travellers end up passing through the place at sometime if they are heading towards Malaysia. It is unfortunate that the trains heading to Penang are only twice daily, and the first one leaves at a ridiculously early time in the morning. Heading the other way south (on the eastern seaboard) there is about 20kms of track missing...

  • Suvarnabhumi Airport

    Bangkok Transportation

    Bangkok's main airport, Suvarnabhumi, is as chaotic as the city itself. Incorrect and out of date signs lead you in the wrong direction, to end up in baffling immigration systems where nobody speaks English and nobody knows what's going on. We ended up stuck in a long queue only to discover we didn't need to be there - they'd just forgotten to...

  • Airplane

    Chiang Mai Transportation

    The straight answer is yes. The easiest and fastest way to go about that is probably to contact Thai airways and have them set up a taxi for you from Chiang Mai airport to Chiang Rai. But this is by far not the cheapest. You could try and get a taxi from the street to take you if you can negotiate a good price, and then there is always a hotel...

    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...

    You can find tuk-tuks in cities around the world, but each city has its own version and Bangkok is no different. It's an experience, and a very Asian way of travelling. But negotiating a fare can be even more stressful than with the Bangkok taxis - they don't have a meter and expect to get at least double the usual fare with foreigners. The typical...

    Bangkok Transportation

    Bangkok has a small, modern subway system that's particularly useful for getting to the central station. It also links up, in a few places, with the Skytrain. It doesn't use the same ticketing system as the Skytrain, though, so you'll need to get a new ticket when you change. The metro uses round tokens that you drop into the ticket gates as you...
