Overview

There are various transportation options provided for tourists – by land, by air, and by Boat.

Land

Traveling on the road is the main choice if you wish to go through provinces within Thailand

Public Transportation: either long-distance or short-distance trips in Bangkok or other provinces, tourists can travel around by bus, by train, by sky train, by subway, by van, and by Song Taew (small pick-up truck with two rows of bench).  

Taxi: Bangkok and big provinces have metered taxis. 

Tuk Tuk: a three-wheeled motorcycle which becomes a symbol of Thailand and can be found around Bangkok and in some provinces. 

Motorcycle Taxi: motorcycle taxis can be found close to street intersections or small allies for quick transportation and short distances. 

Rental Car and Motorcycle: visitors who want to have independent travel or do not want to waste their time waiting for public transport can rent a car or a motorcycle from local companies as well as international chains. Some companies also provide a dRiver for tourist’s convenience and safety. Vehicle rental companies can be found in big cities, airports, and bus or train stations. 

Traveling by car, motorcycle and bicycle is quite convenient for tourists because there are traffic signs available both in the Thai and English languages.

Boat

Thailand has two long coastlines – the Gulf of Thailand and the Andaman coast islands. Also, there are many Rivers and canals throughout the country including Bangkok, which once was called ‘the Venice of the East.’ The long-tail Boats are a main transport on rivers and canals in Bangkok and neighboring provinces. Visitors can also have a Boat trip or river cruise in Bangkok or a trip for snorkeling, Fishing or squid fishing in other provinces.

Air

There are many domestic air routes from Bangkok and provincial capitals. Two main airports in Bangkok are Don Mueang International Airport and Suvarnabhumi International Airport. 
Moreover, for those who want to have more privacy and independence, they can rent a private plane as well.

Thailand’s air transport has grown rapidly since the World War II. The first Thai airport was Don Mueang International Airport, which started providing service since in 1914 and was closed in 2006 when Suvarnabhumi International Airport was officially opened. However, Don Mueang Airport was reopened again in 2007 for domestic flights.

These days we have many international airlines from many countries all over the world operating from Don Mueang and Suvarnabhumi, making these some of the most important airports in South East Asia.

There are also international airports in tourist popular provinces of Thailand such as Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Phuket, Hat Yai, Udon Thani, and Krabi.

This network of airports bolsters the Thai tourism industry and encourages those tourists who don’t want to spend too much of their time travelling by bus, van, or Boat.
