Best way to get around in central bangkok

Hi guys,

My family and I (7 People) will be flying to Bangkok next Sunday.

It's our first time there so what the best way of getting around in Bangkok with seven people? Which method would it be more convenient or cheap to get around? Would it be grab or uber or other options?

Cheers!

Hi,

If you are staying on or near Sukhumvit the best way is to use the BTS Skytrain.

The easiest way is for each of you to get a rabbit card and ride the BTS to your shopping, eating, sight seeing places.

If you're going further afield, you'd need 2 taxis.

Hi,

Some places can be reached by BTS and Riverboat:

The easiest way would be to hire a shuttle van. This will get you where you want to go, when you want to go, door to door.

Whenever our friends, a family of 8 from Singapore, roll into town, that's what they do.

Depending how many and where and when going, BTS / MRT may not be the best option, along with depending where accommodations are.

3 people in a taxi, if any walking involved and no major traffic is just as easy, possibly cheaper than dealing with the crowds at rail lines, steps to and from. Especially if along BTS line. MRT seems to be a better value now of days.

If all 7 travelling together, then limo van definitely a plus, for certain days to knock out the sight seeing. Sorry, no rec.

A loner, obviously by my replies.........LOL
