Boats

Bangkok is split in two by the Chao Phraya River, and the west bank (formerly Thonburi) is still home to a pretty extensive canal system. One of the best ways (although not necessarily the quickest) to visit sights along the river bank, like the Grand Palace and Wat Pho Temple, is by boat. The main pier (Tha Sathon, or Central Pier) connects with the Saphan Taksin BTS station. 

The Chao Phraya Express Boat (orange flag) departs every 10 – 20 minutes between 6 am and 7 pm. Tickets cost 15 THB (US$ 0.40) and the boat stops at most major piers between Wat Rajsingkorn in the south of Bangkok, to Nonthaburi in the north.

The tourist boat (blue flag) runs from Central Pier to Phra Athit/Banglamphu Pier (number 13 on our map). It departs every 30 minutes from 9:30 am to 5 pm and stops at 8 main piers on the route. Tickets cost 40 THB (US$ 1.10). The 150 THB (US$ 4.30) all-day ticket offered by touts isn’t usually worth it.

To cross the river, there are countless ferries that run every few minutes all day and into the night, charging just 3 THB (US$ 0.10).

Taxi

Traveling around Bangkok by taxi is surprisingly cheap – sometimes even more so than the Skytrain – plus, it’s comfortable and easy, and the drivers are usually really friendly. 

Taxis have to use their meters – if a driver refuses to do so, find a different taxi! The meter starts at 35 THB (US$ 1) and journeys to most places in central Bangkok will cost between 60 THB (US$ 1.70) to 90 THB (US$ 2.60). Remember that tolls are paid by the passenger. If you can’t find a taxi willing to use the meter late at night, there are taxi apps available: Grab Taxi and All Thai Taxi.

Don’t expect your driver to speak English. An address written in Thai is a good bet to ensure you’ll get to the right place!

Grab

This new app-based taxi company is a good way to get around Bangkok. journeys are reserved via a mobile application, and the journey has a fixed fare meaning that you’ll avoid arguments and haggling with taxi drivers. The application allows payment by card, or you can pay the driver in cash.

Grab

Tuk-tuks

Those iconic motorized rickshaws are used by locals and tourists alike for short journeys that aren’t worth the taxi fare. Tourists, however, are usually overcharged for these noisy and polluted trips! It’s better to go at night when the pollution isn’t as bad (or to save this experience for another city!) and try and haggle the price down to 60 THB (US$ 1.70). Super cheap tuk-tuks are usually too good to be true and will take you to gem shops and massage parlors in the hope of some commission.
