"Motorcycle Taxis" Bangkok Transportation Tip by Ewingjr98

Motorcycle Taxis are another great and inexpensive way to get around the city. You will see motorcycle taxis on many street corners. The drivers wear very colorful vests that make them stand out from the average motorcycle guy taking a break. Their fares are negotiated before you ride, and are very reasonable. I paid 80 Baht (US$2) for a ride from Thonburi to Sukumvit -- this is a 20-30 minute ride that would cost double or triple the price in a taxi. Motorcycle taxis are also nice in rush hour or other heavy traffic (nearly anytime in Bangkok) as they will squeeze between cars waiting at lights and avoid the long lines.
Just like with tuk tuks, negotiate your fare with the driver before you leave, and don't pay until you arrive at your destination.
