Around the ’Kok around the clock
Whether zipping down the Choa Phraya river on one of the Saen Saeb Khlong boats or winding through alleyways of Khlong Tang in a lit-up rickshaw, transport is always on the mind when in vast, unruly Bangkok. Brightly painted cabs are a ubiquitous sight in the city. The capital is home to over 100,000 taxis, and – for the thrill-seeker – nearly 60,000 motorcycle taxis (tight grip required). But rely only on these and you’re up against notorious traffic. Thankfully Bangkok’s subway and sky trains are modern and blissfully air-conditioned, a break from the oppressive climate of one of the world’s hottest capitals, and a commute across town can often mean hopping between public and private – rail, to river to road.
