Getting Around Bangkok
If you’re not familiar with Bangkok, like me, don’t worry I’ve found a few resources to help to help plan routes and get from A to B using public transport such as buses, the MRT (subway) and the BTS (sky train). You can also take a meter taxi or motorcycle taxi, and use Grab app to book taxis or motorcycle taxis.
