Getting Around Bangkok
Though, we manage the entire needs about your transportation during the convention, we have also concluded below some more useful information and websites about traveling around Bangkok.
To get around Bangkok, we suggest you to use the Skytrain (BTS) and the underground (MRT) rail systems are the best way and most reliable. They connect the main shopping, entertainment and business areas of the city, while river taxis and express boats can be used to explore many historic sites and attractions at the riverside. Taxi’s price is reasonable and they appear on virtually every corner at almost any time. Tuk-tuks, once a big Bangkok attraction, are slowly disappearing in favour of more comfortable transport, but are still worth a ride at least once.
Due to the traffic during peak hour in Bangkok, we don’t recommend you to take a public bus although it gives you a ringside seat to experience and observe the locals and the city.
