Bangkok Tuk-Tuks

Locally known as ‘samlor’ or otherwise your three-wheeled taxis. Bargain before hopping on board and beware offers at unbelievably low prices, a set up to lure you to overpriced souvenir or jewelry shops. Approximate cost for a short 10 minute ride is around THB 40 – 100.

Bangkok Buses

Extensive and inexpensive public bus service with prices ranging from THB 8 to THB 30 depending on type of bus, however, as destinations are given only in Thai it is best you get a bus route map (available at most hotels, TAT offices and bookshops).
