How to get from Bangkok to resorts of Thailand. Transport guide

Bangkok is the capital of bright and exotic Thailand. It is a business city which, however, has maintained its Asian zest. This place is full of life: there are business empires being built in its business district, and its steep streets are home to small fruit markets. Many tourists start their acquaintance with Thailand from Bangkok – they first arrive at Suvarnabhumi Airport and then go from it to their holiday destinations. If you are going to go to Bangkok, then our KiwiTaxi Airguides will be helpful to you.

Bangkok transport timetable

As in any other Asian countries, transport in Bangkok cannot be called perfect, and its timetable – stable. The tourist season in most resort places of Thailand starts not earlier than October, however even in winter local route taxis and tuk-tuks (the local form of transport looking like an open truck with benches for passengers) run rather irregularly. Only trains and planes have more or less fixed timetables. Express buses usually depart after their cabins are full.

How to choose the right means of transport to get from and to Bangkok?

If you don’t find yourself a professional backpacker who doesn’t need any advice, then we recommend you to pay your attention to this section. Here, we’ve collected the key questions by answering which you will be able to choose your perfect form of transport:

— what is more important for me – saving money or travelling in comfort? If you have a small travel budget, choose public transport with a low and fixed ticket price, and if you are ready to pay a little more for comfort and fast travel, then give preference to a taxi or a plane;

— am I travelling with small children or aged relatives? Because if you’re not travelling alone, you should think about comfort of those who cannot handle long trips, waiting in the heat (this is an acute issue in Bangkok) or hot transport;

— do I have a lot of luggage? It is very hard to make transport changes in an unfamiliar city with heavy suitcases;

— am I arriving in the daytime, in the evening or at night? Many types of transport are not available at night and early in the morning.

Consider all these points thoroughly and it will be easy for you to choose the right form of transport in Bangkok.
