Bangkok Destination Guide

OVERVIEW
Bangkok is one of Asia’s most cosmopolitan cities. Created as the Thai capital in 1782 by the first monarch of the present Chakri dynasty, Bangkok is a national treasure house and Thailand’s spiritual, cultural, political, commercial, educational and diplomatic centre.

Bangkok exceeds 1,500 square kilometres in area and is home to one-tenth of the country's population.

Major tourist attractions include glittering Buddhist temples, palaces, timeless “Venice of the East” canal and river scenes, classical dance extravaganzas, and numerous shopping centres.

GETTING TO BANGKOK
By Air:
Bangkok is Thailand's major gateway. Most visitors arrive through Bangkok's Don Muang International Airport which is connected by daily flights to Europe, North America, Asia and Australia aboard the worls's major airlines.

By Rail:
Regular rail services link Singapore and Bangkok. Intermediary stops include Kuala Lumpur, Butterworth and major southern Thai towns.

By Road:
Overland entrance to Thailand is restricted to three road crossings on the Thai-Malaysian border in Songkhla,Yala and Narathiwat.

GETTING AROUND BANGKOK
By Sky Train BTS:
One of the most advanced type of urban railway, the Bangkok Transit System (BTS), an elevated heavy rail system running above the business district of Bangkok. With the new millennium, BTS will offer its passengers speed and relia-bility and prove to be a very attractive alternative to road travel. The Sukhumvit and the Silom lines will ensure that Bangkok can breathe again.


Tuk Tuk:
An all-time favorite among tourist, this colorful open-air three-wheeled vehicle is unique to Thailand. Basically a "taxi" that could be hired anywhere (but not outside the city), the tuk tuk can take you almost anywhere in Bangkok. There are no standard fare. Prices must be negotiated before the trip. Normal fare starts at Bt20 for very short distances and not over Bt 100 for a longer trip.


Motorcycle Taxi:
A new form of transport provides a faster, albeit riskier answer for commuting during peak traffic hours. You can find them anywhere in Bangkok. They can go anywhere in Bangkok, but fares must be negotiated. Fares : very similar to those charged by tuk-tuk.

Taxi:
Just like any taxi service around the world, Thai taxicabs may be best for trips around the city. Fare, determined from the electronic meters, starts from Bt 35 and rises about Bt 2 per kilometer onwards. Some drivers would want to bargain a price for a trip rather than use the meters. Notify the tourist police or ordinary officers if treated unfairly by taxi drivers.

City Bus:
The bus network within the metropolis is very efficient and economical. It is also a wonderful way to tour the city cheaply. There are several kinds of city buses : air-conditioned, and regular buses with different range of capacity, route, and fare (depends upon distance, usually Bt 3.50-5 for regular buses, and Bt 8-24 for air-con buses.

River Taxi:
Taxis that are even more unusual, though equally convenient, are the river taxis that ply the Chao Phraya River. Some are just cross river ferries, but others serve the many landing stages on both banks and cover a route that goes up as far as the northern suburb of Nonthaburi.
