Transportation in Bangkok

In Bangkok, the Skytrain airway, the MRT subway and a multitude of taxis are used. When choosing a taxi we recommend you to save time and money that you refrain from going to one that is not in circulation. Before getting on it, confirm that you have a meter and clarify the route to be taken, avoiding unnecessary stops. It is also normal for the taxi driver to round up the price if there are few bahts of difference. Therefore, try to carry loose money.

As preventive measures, peel fruits and consume drinks without ice.
