"TRAVEL BY TUK TUK" Bangkok Transportation Tip by mamasan69

Bangkok Transportation: 1,184 reviews and 1,466 photos

When you need transport from the airport in Bangkok, the best method I found would be the airport shuttle bus. It runs every half hour up until 1200am, and costs 100bht per person. This bus is air-conditioned and allows people to carry on their luggage, most city buses don't allow this.
In the city itself the best mode of travel would probably be Tuk Tuks. They are fast, loud and quite reasonable in price, as long as you can handle crazy traffic, pollution, and driving. (see my comments about scams). After three trips to Bangkok this past year, I now rather travel by taxi, it is generally easier and less stressfull. The only problem is if you happen to get one that doesn't speak english and you are like me, not very good with speaking Thai yet. However if you have never had a Tuk-Tuk ride, it is worth trying at least once while in Bangkok.
