Taxis : Metered taxis are available in Bangkok. Make sure the driver turns on the meter, especially if you are starting from the airport. Make sure you have change, as taxi drivers often don't! Drivers change shifts at about 3.30-4.00 p.m., and may not accept you unless your destination is convenient. Passengers must pay tolls in the case of using an expressway.

If taxis do not have meters, fares must be agreed upon before starting. The amount will vary depending on the distance, traffic, weather (if it is raining the fare will rise) and the negotiating skills of the hirer. Average fares in Bangkok are between 50-200 baht.



Tuk-Tuk : Three-wheeled open-air vehicles taking two passengers (three or four at a squeeze), Tuk-tuks offer an 'interesting' ride! Best for shorter trips during off-peak hours. Settle the fare before proceeding. It should cost less than the price of a comparable journey by taxi meter.

Buses : Bangkok has an extensive bus service with routes serving every part of the city. There are both air-conditioned and non-air-conditioned vehicles, which provide an extremely cheap way of getting around town.


River Taxi : Taxis that are even more unusual, though equally convenient, are the river taxis that ply the Chao Phraya river. Some are just cross river ferries, but others serve the many landing stages on both banks and cover a route that goes up as far as the northern suburb of Nonthaburi.


Out of Bangkok

Air : The Bangkok International Airport and the domestic airport in Don Muang lie 25 km north of the city. Airport departure taxes are required at both domestic and international departures  (international passengers: 500 baht/person domestic passengers: 30 baht/person).
