Thailand Transportation

  • 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.

  • Renting Cars and Drivers

    Phuket Transportation

    Transportation is always an issue in Phuket and we’ve found that one of the best ways to get around is to hire a private driver for the day – unlike using a local taxi, you get to create your own itinerary and you get to spend time in a clean, good-quality car with a guy who speaks good English and can therefore enhance your experience of being in...

  • 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.

  • 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

    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...

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...
