Best Transport in Bangkok

Local Recommendations from our My Guide Bangkok team

Although its reputation for gridlock traffic at any time of day may put many people off, the wide ranging alternative public transport system makes Bangkok a wonderfully easy city to navigate.

The Skytrain and underground rail systems link shopping, entertainment and business spots and the river taxis help get tourists off the busy roads and around the city faster. Alternatively, if you can brave the bustling streets, taxis are frequent and cheap and easily hailed on every street corner. The traditional tuk-tuk is definitely worth a ride, even if the bumpy back seats are not the most comfortable.
