I have already laid out something in my articles. But that’s okay if I repeat, let everything be in one place. As a rule, for movements serve tuk-tuki (varieties of motorcycles with a sidecar), Sang-teo (pick-ups, where there are benches in the back), something like mini buses (can be made based on anything), and ordinary buses from old (short distances) to new and comfortable (between cities). In some cities tuk-tuks or sang-theo may look different, so made based on other aggregates. About public transport I wrote here again – Bangkok Metro, Bangkok bus stations, Bangkok railway stations
For short distances, small buses run, often old ones. In addition, some of them have air conditioning. Also such buses are used for movement within the city, but there are also modern. Sometimes, on some routes go minivans. Between cities, long distances run comfortable buses with air conditioning and toilet (often double-decker), where there is a vip, 1st and 2nd grade Classes do not differ significantly – width seat, power, speed of movement and the presence of a toilet.

Sang-theo – it is covered pickups, inside which made the seat. It is the most popular form of transport in the city, and the closest suburbs. You can also walk more and more units, in the form of trucks, where the body is converted to passengers. Usually the fare is about 20 baht (20p) inside the city, or slightly higher, if further.

Tuk-tuk in Thailand
Tuk-tuki are usually made on the basis of a motorcycle with a sidecar. Only the stroller is not on the side, but in the back or front. Mostly on them Tourists move as it is the most expensive form of transport. A knock-knock can also be in the form of a small car. The fare is from 100 baht (100r), as you are bargaining.

Mototaxi on Phuket
For some reason I have a special love for old cars (for Russians this does not apply). But not to those who were at the beginning of the past. century, but rather in its second half. One of the favorite – Ford Mustang 60s. Of course, in Tae I did not see him, but something similar It was. Moreover, I do not know any names or characteristics, just me I like to look at them.

Since Thailand has many farmers, workers, as well as roads tracks are unpaved, then the most popular cars here are pickups. When i first came to the vegetable market, I immediately thought that our summer residents, but collective farmers would envy the Thais. On the toyota driving around—
Toyota Hilux – one of the most popular cars.

In Thailand, as probably in any other country, there are various means of transportation, not peculiar to our country. What is this for tourists, something for the locals.

The most popular way to move. First week in Chiang Mai we wondered where the sidewalks, where the pedestrians … So that’s all just therefore, there is no need to walk when there is a bike. And how they drive there is A separate song, for 3-4 people, with bags and trunks. Sometimes even the driver is not visible behind things.
4 people on one bike – the usual thing
