Could you ever imagine what beautiful things can you see when looking things closer? What are you looking at? Get up and bring along your guide maps and tourist brochures as we will make a very in-depth insight of what Thailand is all about. And what they can give back to each traveler.
Looping around through Taxi
Rich kid you could be. Using taxi in Thailand is common. But this country has a very humid weather and really hot season. By means of taxi you’ll never get a chance to see most great views of Thailand and it could be pricey but convenient enough rather than any other form of transportation as this country really has a hot weather. But if you insist, you could have the cab all day long for costs of $3 per destination or more depending on how far or near it can be. They are everywhere in the country not much in provinces but mostly in key cities.
The most popular vehicle in the country
Thailand also has an auto rickshaw vehicle. This is the usual transportation in this country but tricky to rent. Neighbouring countries of Laos, Myanmar, Vietnam and Cambodia also used this kind of commuter. It maybe that your booked hotel owns a tuk-tuk or taxi so that, it could be easily for you to tour the city or district in half a day. Be ready to get sweat as it is an open-air vehicle and you’ll succumb all the pollution and heat of the streets. Always settle for a price before riding it as some may overprice your ride. Be careful as this vehicle can’t secure your safety while driving. Avoid scams of drivers offering tour in the place. They get a fee of cents but whenever they landed you to any shop they’ll get commission or coupons in exchange of each tourist whom would visit the shop.
It is a normal situation in Thailand to see people riding in a motorcycle by duo. But it was unusual to use the motorcycle as taxi. You read it right! A person can rent or ride in a motorcycle with the driver. With this mode of transportation traffic jam in key cities can be avoided. But as of today, thousands of motorcycle taxi has been used and some causes traffic jam. Hold tight in their shoulder or tummy as most accident by motorcycle taxi wasn’t covered by insurance in Thailand. Or better yet, get a helmet in case accident may occur. Don’t feel hesitant riding at the back of their motorcycle as they are licensed to take passenger. The fare per motorcycle taxi usually starts at $1 and above depending on the haggling ability you have to which place you’re destine to go. Most of them don’t understand English as they are local but they can understand in which place you’re going as long as you say the Thai name of the place. Arm-up yourself for negotiating skills to get a best deal.
Way normal mode of transportation
It is very common in Thailand to have a motorcycle. Tourists are not allowed to ride a motorcycle as compliance to government policy. They can ride as a commuter but never should use the motorcycle alone.
Cycling Around their Streets
Gear up. Stretch down. No turning back. This means of transportation are very much allowed in this country with minimal rules to follow to enjoy riding bicycles. They have set lanes in the streets for bicycle to avoid accident as well as affecting traffic situation in key cities. You could customize your bike or either way just simply rent it a day to enjoy beauty of Thailand in a daily basis. Never forget to ask for bike gears (helmet, knee and elbow caps) if available to secure your safety. Don’t rush while biking in the streets as it has different kind of streets to run about compared to your country. Each rental may costs of about $15 and above depending on hours of usage per day. By using bicycle, you could appreciate the beauty of their secluded temples and stunning lighting shows at nightliving.
