All roads lead to Bangkok! Simply, Bangkok is a central hub of activity, with travellers coming and going probably more so than any other city in Asia.
Whether you are heading there specifically, stopping over or passing through en-route to another Thai destination, or heading somewhere else in Asia or the South Pacific, you will at some point encounter the Bangkok transportation options.
Many first timers to Bangkok will automatically jump in a taxi on arrival at the airport, or even just to get from A to B once in the city. However, just because taxi travel in Thailand is one of the cheapest in the world, it does not mean it should always be the default.
Taking a taxi in Bangkok isn't always the cheapest option or the most reliable. More importantly there are some great experiences to be had by taking other forms of public transport.
Researching all the options can be a minefield, so this post is designed to give you a summary of the options available and point you in the direction of some useful resources to help plan for your Bangkok transport needs.
