Getting Around Bangkok

Traveling in and around Bangkok can seem daunting at first sight. With city lights illuminating the night sky, street food that inundates the senses, pedestrians who shop nonstop and not to mention the stray Bangkokian dogs who are always sniffing around for a meal. You can become lost, confused or even overwhelmed. However, if you are in the heart of the city you are in luck. The BTS and MRT operate from six a.m. to midnight seven days a week with low cost fares to all areas. The destinations on both transits will give you an opportunity to explore many religious sites, temples, palaces, family fun options and of course shopping. Whether it is a night market or the famous Chatuchak weekend market you can use the metro transit system...
