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 airport rail link

The Bangkok airport rail link  is cheap, clean, efficient and gives you the chance to watch greater Bangkok pass by your window. 

Bangkok Taxis

Always insist that the meter is turned on when you enter a Bangkok taxi. Be aware that if you take one within Bangkok you will have to deal with added costs due to traffic delays. 

Bangkok MRT subway

There is one line serving 18 stations in Bangkok, going from Hua Lamphong in the South (near Chinatown) to Bang Sue in the north. 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 is an excellent way of getting around Bangkok. You will really appreciate it on a stinking hot day as the AC is freezing. The sky train can get you around Bangkok quite quickly. 

Tuk Tuk

There are many places the Bangkok rail network will not reach. In that case you have to take a bus, walk or a tuk tuk. Even though tuk tuks are more expensive I would often opt for them just for the thrill of it. 

Bangkok Buses

We loved getting around Bangkok in a bus. The constant clacking of the conductor’s change tin as he tried to wriggle his way through the sweaty armpits of all of Bangkok squashed into the bus is a memory that will last forever.
