Transportation in the capital and elsewhere

The best and fasted transportation in urban areas are motorbikes (scooter with 125cc), they can be rented everywhere for around Baht 250,- / day but it is very dangerous to drive with them because most people don't know about traffic rules and they just don't care. A good alternative in Bangkok would be to take a "Motocyc" taxi and the BTS (elevated train) or the underground. For long distance take the bus, they are in good condition, the roads are also quite good, means a perfect match.
