Thailand is a modern country with a modern public transport network. The country has an extensive range of airports and its domestic air routes make even the farthest flung corners of the kingdom accessible to the visitor. Thailand also has an excellent road and rail system complemented by a very cost-efficient urban bus services and an intercity bus and coach system that links the entire country and provides even the most advanced countries with a genuine definition of efficiency and convenience. But where the public transport system doesn’t reach, the entrepreneurs take over and imagination kicks in. As a result, there are some pretty unique methods of transport on offer. What follows is an overview of some of the types of transportation you might experience on your trip to Thailand.
The Suvarnabhumi International Airport and the Don Mueang International Airport in Bangkok are important gateway to Thailand. There are daily flights to Europe, North America, Asia and Australasia. Thailand has an extended domestic flights network which connect most important cities directly or via Bangkok.
Suvarnabhumi Airport Express (SA Express Line)
This line provides transportation service between Bangkok City Air Terminal (BCAT) from Makkasan to Suvarnabhumi Airport within 15 minutes, which stops only at Makkasan Station
Travel by train is surely a pleasant way to travel around the country; The largest railway station and gateway to most of Thailand is the Hua Lamphong station in Bangkok, located near the intersection of Rama IV and Krung Kasem.
The Mass Rapid Transit Authority (of Thailand), or MRTA (or usually just MRT) is a work of engineering genius. Although at present there’s only one line, the MRT takes you from northern Bangkok (Bang Sue – near a railway connection) to just south of the centre (Hua Lum Phong – Bangkok’s main railway station) at a phenomenal rate.
The BTS descended on Bangkok as would a divine entity, restoring order from chaos, and improving the life and conditions of all. Bangkok’s traffic was always bad, and of course the years it took to build the BTS made the traffic even worse, but the inconvenience was worth it – the BTS is a godsend.
Before the introduction of the ‘Taxi Meter’ you could spend 10 minutes arguing over the price of a journey. That’s all changed, and Taxi Meters are standard as far as cost is concerned – prices start at 35 Baht (just less than a dollar) and it’s 2
Baht a kilometre after that, all charged on a meter!
Thailand has a well organized network of inter-city buses that connects all parts of the country. Buses are a good mode to access all provinces in Thailand, running both to and from Bangkok and between each other.
To hire a Tuk-Tuk you have to negotiate the price with the driver. Often, the Tuk-Tuk is not cheaper than a taxi, especially on shorter journeys.
Motorcycle taxis always wear a vest which identifies where they are permitted to base their operations, and with a number on their back which is unique to the individual.
The ‘Baht Bus’
The Baht Bus no longer costs 1 Baht; expect charges of between 5 Baht and 20 Baht depending on where you are and what you are doing.
The ‘Express Boat’
Express boats run down rivers stopping at each quay and picking up passengers. With fares of only 4-10 Baht, if they are heading in your direction, they are the quickest way of getting anywhere, especially in Bangkok.
Ferries operate connecting the mainland and popular islands including Surat Thani to Koh Samui, Phuket to Phi Phi and Trat to Koh Chang.
Koh Lanta consists of 52 islands including the largest, Koh Lanta Yai. It’s located approximately 70 kilometres south of Krabi Town.
Koh Lanta’s scenic beauty may not quite compete with some other areas in the province. However, if you’re looking for complete peace and quiet away from the bustling tourist areas, with a few home comforts, head there!
Koh Lanta Yai preserves its community spirit in both family and business life. With clear, cool waters and superb white sand beaches stretching along a 27 kilometer coastline, its paradisiacal appeal remains unmarred by mass tourism.
The island itself runs 30 kms from North to South, with theko lanta beaches West coast established as the main tourist area with totally 9 beaches, offering accommodation for all budgets, a variety of activities, and an attractive choice of bars and restaurants.
Excellent swimming conditions and a fabulous stretch of white sand surrounded by the mountains of Ko Lanta’s national park make this small beach very impressive. If scuba diving is not suit for you, This Ko Lanta offers a range of daytrips that visit stunning remote islands with spectacular shallow coral reefs.
Ko Lanta is a diver’s paradise for beginners and the experienced. There are very few places on the planet where divers can enjoy and underwater world so rich and diverse. And imagine learning to dive in water that’s the same temperature as your bath water at home.
Eco-tourist-friendly, Tung Yee Peng is the best Mangrove forest located on the eastern coast of Ko Lanta. Tung Yee Peng is a project operated by UNDP (United Nations Development Program)
Most resorts are family-run, and built with basic, natural materials such as hard woods and bamboos. Some offer full facilities with pool & Jacuzzi, internet, satellite TV and tub with hot shower. There are a few four or five star resorts offering Spa treatments and various luxuries.
Ko Lanta can access from Krabi, Trang or Phuket either by public ferry or van. There are only a few trips a day.
