BTS & MRT

However, if you wish to travel to attractions farther from the city center, taxis will be the most accessible and cheap way. You can find taxis in virtually every corners in Bangkok. However, make sure the drivers start their meters, request for a receipt and count the change carefully. Even from airport to city center, it wont cost you more than 250 baht.

Make a reasonable bargain before getting on any tuk-tuks. Moreover, Look out for tuk-tuk drivers that may approach you and persuade you forcefully to place that they claim promising.
