Getting Around

Since most of Bangkok’s temples and museums are located near the Chao Phraya River, the city’s ferries and water taxis are a convenient and often dramatic way to visit these attractions. If you’d prefer land travel, the Bangkok Transit System, also called the Skytrain, is an elevated rail network that travels to most of the popular tourist sites. The city also has an underground subway system and a few bus routes.

Tuk-tuks are Bangkok’s signature taxi cabs. These engine-powered rickshaws are not the most convenient way to get around, but they may be good for a one-time novelty ride.

Avoiding Scams

Bangkok, like many large cities, has its share of scam artists. One of the most common scams occurs at temples. As you approach, a friendly Thai may tell you that the attraction is closed. He will then say that he is a “specially trained tour guide” and offer to take you to a gem store or tailor shop, which typically sells overpriced items.
