Transportation in Bangkok

There are many ways you can use to come from one place to the other and you should know all, because only taxi (like in other cities) is not a good choice, because the traffic jam can make your trip very slow most time. 

Airport Link,Sky Train and Metro in Bangkok

There is a network of 3 different Train Lines all over Bangkok:

  • From the airport, there is a fast train (Airport Link) who will bring you to the city center and no problem to exchange to Metro or Skyline there. 
  • At the moment they have only one Metro Line, but it is easy to use and travel around the city. The ticket is cheap and you also can get a prepaid card, but unfortunally that card only works for the Metro, not for Sky or Airport train. All 3 nightlife districts in Bangkok are in walking distance to metro or Skytrain Stations
  • The Skytrain is another line which connect more areas to the Metro System.

If you use Google Map on your phone, you can get the route description also including the use of the mentioned trains. 

Using a Taxi in Bangkok

It is easy to find a taxi in Bangkok, there will be hundrets of them everywhere in all different colors, but more hard to find one will bring you to the place you like and also charge a reasonable rate. 

Over all taxi driving should be cheap in Bangkok, but for foreigner very often they try not to use the meter, but charge a high price they can decide bei them self. Also most of the taxi drivers speak very less english and can not even read a english adress, so better use our location cards to show where you want to go.

There is also a problem with "commission" the drivers get from different venues, so when you asked them to bring you to a special massage shop, could be they try to drive you all around to other massage shops, where they can get more "tip" than they could earn with the normal taxi fee for that trip. 

Tip: If the taxi driver don`t want to go there or don`t want to drive with taximeter, just go over to the next one. Also better stop a taxi driving by than take the one waiting there already, because than a much better chance to find a honest one. Also better only give them the street adress, not the "place" you want to go to avoid they will bring you to a competitor where they can get tip. 

Driving Tuk Tuk in Bangkok

Near to every club, redlight area and hotels you will find that kind of small open mixed car and motorbike shuttles called "Tuk-Tuk". They don`t have a taxi-meter, so the price is up to negotiation and most time overpriced. It is nice for a "sightseeing-tour", if you don`t care to overpay, but not for a normal transportation from one place to the other. Most time a taxi with meter will charge less than 50% of the price the Tuk-Tuk will ask for. Önly if they bring you to a massage or club where they can get high commission, there will be checper, but than you have to overpay the massage or club. 

Motorbike-Shuttle in Bangkok

Most time at the metro, sky or airport link station, you will find a waiting line of Thai people who who will be picked up by guys on small motorbikes. They all will wear a orange vest to be identified as a official shuttle driver. The rates will be 20 THB to 50 THB to locations not far away, but the guys will also be around bars and clubs in the nighttime. From foreigners they will also ask double or three times higher rates, but you can negotiate them down to a rate mentioned above.

Tip: The guys are honest over all, but they speak very bad english and most of them also can not read a english adress, so better prepare your adress in thai language to show them where to go, otherwise they will not agree to take you or they will drive totally wrong places. For nightlife use, you can get our Bangkok Location Cards for your mobilephone now. 

Walking on the streets in Bangkok

The most intersting places we found are concentrated on a small area around Sukhumvit Road, so if you book a hotel in the right area, you can walk from there to Nana Plaza, Soi Cowboy and some of the most intersting massage and BJ locations within 10 minutes, so you can save a lot of trouble and money by transportation. This area has a lot of hotels in different price ranges, but not even more expensive than other areas on Bangkok. If you walk around, you only should watch your step because the streets and sidewalks are in very bad conditions. Also never cross a street without checking, if there is a car coming. The taxi drivers will ignore red lights and any kind of traffic signs there.
