Bangkok is well known for its gridlock traffic! The public transportation system is an excellent and modern way to get around. You should definitely take advantage of the various options while in the city. The city is surprisingly easy to navigate around with the popular Skytrain above ground and MRT metro underground there are plenty of ways to connect to the main shopping, entertainment and historic sites of the city.

By taxi

Taxis are a popular way to get around the city of Bangkok and are available 24 hours a day and can be found on basically every street corner. They are brightly colored so you won`t be able to miss them. However taxis get caught up in the traffic just like other vehicles and you can expect a really long wait during rush hour and if it is raining. The fare will start at 35 baht (about a $1) and should be shown on the meter when you get in and stay that way for the first mile and works its way up 2 baht at a time, surcharges apply in traffic jams and for tolls and airport fees. Taxi drivers speak little English and communication can be difficult, it is a good idea to have your destination written down in Thai script to hand to the driver to save on time. Small tips are appreciated, normally it is customary to round up to the nearest baht and leave the change for the driver.

By tuk - tuk

Tuk - tuks are essentially a rickshaw with a small engine, they were once a big attraction and a popular way to get around Bangkok. They are becoming obsolete but are still popular amongst tourists. Worth at least one ride more for the experience than a practical way to get around. Fares vary based on a number of different factors but normally a short ride will run around 30 baht (less than a $1), haggling is a must as the fares for tourists are always inflated. Be aware not to take rides with anyone offering to take you to `secret` or `special` places, these drivers are considered the tuk - tuk mafia who most likely will try to rip you off. Tuk - tuks also get stuck in traffic just like taxis so it is not a good idea to try and take a ride during rush hour.

By uber

Uber has become a popular way of getting around the city of Bangkok and is a cheaper option to a taxi. The Uber app is easy to use and operates 100% from your smart phone with charges to your credit card on file so it is a cashless experience and also helps avoid the translation barrier and bartering over fares. Uber BKK, UberX and UberBlack are all services available in Bangkok.
