From the new Bangkok airport rail link, to subways and tuk tuks there are so many options for getting around Bangkok. Here’s a short guide to help you find your way around Bangkok, Thailand. 

Bangkok Taxis

All taxis are now metered and air-conditioned: the hailing fee is 35 baht and most trips within downtown cost less than 100 baht. 

Bangkok MRT subway

There is one line serving 18 stations in Bangkok. Bangkok MRT subway trains run every 5-7 minutes and connect to BTS at Sukhumvit and Silom stations. 

The BTS Sky train

The BTS Sky Train covers most of downtown Bangkok. Fares range from 15 to 40 baht depending upon how many zones you are travelling. 

Tuk Tuk

Tuk tuks are one of my favourite ways of getting around Bangkok, despite the ride being on the edge of your seat and full of pollution. 

Getting around Bangkok by river

The Saen Saep express boat is mostly used by commuters and goes down one of the few remaining klongs (canals). It provides easy access from the Golden Mount (our old home and close to Khao San Road) to Siam Square. 

Walking around Bangkok

There is so much to discover and explore in Bangkok. Walking is the best way of experiencing the city and its people. It won’t cost you anything and has less impact on the smog that shrouds the city every day.
