Bangkok Motorbike taxis are the quickest way to navigate rush hour traffic (bar helicopter). They easily nip and weave through busy streets making it the preferred option for those on a hurry. They also offer cheap transport in Bangkok. Bangkok motorbike taxis are generally used locally for short distances between public transport and residential areas. However, it is possible to negotiate a price for further journeys for travel in Bangkok.
Motorbikes can be seen as “extreme” public transport. While relatively safe it is best to ask for a protective helmet. If no helmet available expect to arrive white faced and windstrewn hair.
Where: Bangkok motorbike taxis can be found at street (soi) corners, busy shopping / office areas and outside public transport routes. You can also flag bikes down on the street. Look for bikers wearing numbered and coloured bibs e.g. for travel in Bangkok centre drivers use orange bibs (as pictured).
