Wondering how to get around in Bangkok? 🛵🚖🚏 ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ Use public transport. This is the best way to get around Bangkok. From the airport you can take the Airport Rail Links: City Line or Express Line and then use one of BTS skytrains or the MRT (metro train). ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀
Vending machines at the metro stations are user-friendly, as there is an English language option. In any case, you can ask for help from a staff member at the station.
The majority of the staff speaks English and is very helpful.
By the way, all trains are fully air-conditioned… sometimes even ‘over’-conditioned.
Taxi in Bangkok are very affordable and safe. Pink taxi are very reliable. Just agree with the driver that he switches on the taximeter.
Local public buses are super cheap. You just have to figure out which number will bring you to your destination as the schedule on the bus stops is either in Thai, or you won’t find it at all.
Ask for directions at the hotel and explain you wish to take a bus, as they would most probably advise you to call a taxi.
The Skytrain (BTS) and underground (MRT) rail systems connect the main shopping, entertainment and business areas of the city, while river taxis and express boats can be used to explore many historic sites and attractions at the riverside.
Taxis are cheap and appear on virtually every corner at almost any time.
Tuk-tuks, once a big Bangkok attraction, are slowly disappearing in favour of more comfortable transport, but are still worth a ride at least once. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀
A classic street dish... elevated. We take our inspiration from all over India including the street side stalls that feed the majority of the country! If you haven’t had the chance to visit India, don’t worry, the flavors of indus will make you feel like you’re there... 🙏🏼 🇮🇳
Look for the super cute friendly granny in goggles along Yaowarat, beside a 7-11. Her ingredients were so fresh, the pork was ooohhlala (most tender and softest melt in your mouth kinda way) Warning: her noodles are quite little (1 mouthful kind), but the ingredients make up for it ❤️❤️
