Catching the Chao Phraya Express Boat

Similar to the tourist boats, but cheaper and more cramped, are the orange flag express boats. The river’s true workhorses, these cruise from a far southern pier, Wat Rajsingkorn (S3), all the way up to Nonthaburi (N30) to the north of Bangkok, hitting the majority of piers along the way. Orange flags run all day, every day, stopping roughly every 20 minutes from 06:00 to 19:00, although on weekdays the last boats pick up as late as 21:00. Orange flag tickets cost a flat 15 baht no matter how far you go.

Chao Phraya River | Guide to Bangkok Boat Travel

The Central Pier, called Tha Sathorn, is conveniently located right next to Saphan Taksin BTS (skytrain) station. From here you can take boats both north and south, although the boats north are where most of the attractions are. All piers along the Chao Phraya River are clearly marked in both English and Thai, and also have the pier numbers marked on them. All piers to the south are marked with an S, and all the piers to the north with an N. Boats run from pier S4 (Rajburana) to N33 (Pakkret).

Cab, Grab or Uber? The cheapest ride rates revealed (INFOGRAPHIC) | Coconuts Bangkok

Aside from the price, Thai people tend to like Grab and Uber since the services will pick you up at your door. Riders can review the drivers and, unlike taxi drivers, they don’t turn down fares once you are already at the car door.

The Truth About Taxis in Bangkok | The Expatriate

I have tried to cover off on quite a lot to help you understand the hows and whys with respect to taxis in Bangkok. Taxis are plentiful and cheap, but there are issues with them as well. As a result, my preference these days is to live, work and play close to the BTS and MRT lines, and that way I only resort to taxis when I am going somewhere off the grid, or if I am out and about after midnight (which is when the BTS and MRT close). However, with a little bit of knowledge, using taxis really doesn’t need to be that dramatic either. I would estimate that about 9 out of 10 of my taxi rides have been pleasurable. For the 1 out of 10, it’s usually been a driver who has no idea where my destination is, or wants to negotiate a fare.

【曼谷交通】曼谷捷運BTS必備 Rabbit Card:泰國版悠遊卡,還可以小額付款。 @ Mimi韓の愛旅生活 :: 痞客邦 PIXNET ::

很推薦大家來曼谷自由行,一定要辦張兔子卡(Rabbit Card),這其實就和台灣悠遊卡差不多,因為曼谷市區塞車嚴重,搭計程車時常會有呈現動彈不得的情況。所以BTS和MRT這兩條曼谷主要捷運系統是幾乎一定會用到的交通工具,而搭捷運最方便的方式當然就是直接刷兔子卡(官網請點),除了省去排隊時間,還可以小額付款,不會讓身上找了一大堆零錢。再者,曼谷捷運的售票機超乎想像的笨,因為一次只能買一張,如果同行的人多,光買票就是大工程了,所以這篇就來簡單介紹一下這張泰國版悠遊卡吧!
