Bangkok by Train, Boat, Bus, and Tuk-Tuk

A few weeks ago, I was visited by a quartet of friends, several of whom are transportation geeks… er, enthusiasts. Reprising a transportation-themed tour I led two years ago, I took my guests on a six-hour excursion around the metropolis. This time, the number of modes of transportation increased from seven to ten: Thong Lor red bus, Khlong Saen Saeb canal boat, taxi, third-class heavy rail, non-air conditioned city bus, Chao Phraya express boat, ferry, tuk-tuk, Bus Rapid Transit, and Skytrain.

I hope you enjoyed the journey!

  1. You did all that in a day? O_oI haven’t been on a bus rapid transit and Chao Praya express boat. Next time, I should join you. ๐Ÿ˜€ Oh and you’re right, the water in the canal is EEWWW!

  2. Chris, you are the ultimate host/tour guide. Out of all my visits to Thailand, no tour guide would provide such a “journey”, unless guests paid dearly for that!I tried almost all of these modes of public transportation, and I found taking tuk-tuk the most fun, just like a go-cart dashing all over the streets! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. That’s some pretty sweet coordination and quite the tour service you’re offering! I think my best attempt would be “Uh, I ride a bus…. the buses suck. Wanna take a cab?”
