Getting Around Bangkok
  Bangkok Travel Tip

Because so many of the prime attractions are along the river, the ferry is the best way to get around. Hotels located on the river usually have their own shuttles, however, the local ferry is much more interesting, just take care when boarding.

Every important district has a ferry dock and the people line up as if waiting for a bus at a bus stop. And if they don't get on this one, another one will come along. Taxis are available and the prices are fair but if you get stuck in a gridlock you could have probably walked to your destination quicker.

Busses suffer the same consequences. At one point we were on a bus on a bridge in view of our hotel about a block away. It took us a half hour to cross the intersection. One passenger decided to get off the bus and he hurt his leg in the process, because the bridge was not constructed for pedestrians.
