The most convenient mode of transportation in Bangkok are generally the BTS skytrain, with two main lines serving Sukhumvit and Silom area, and the MRT, the underground train system that takes you from Hua Lamphong to Bang Sue. For full maps, check out www.bts.co.th

103 Taxis

Taking a taxi in the city can be tricky, as many drivers still refuse to head out to destinations further out, especially during peak hours. Locals often opt for UBER and GrabTaxi/Grabcar as a result. Applications can be downloaded at www.uberbkk.com and www.grab.com/th.

104 Tuktuks

Motorbikes and Tuk Tuks are fast but also expensive as there’s no price guideline. Be ready to bargain.
