Travelling ThailandA few tips about how to get around
The asian equivalent to Uber is Grab. And Grab doesn’t only let you order a cab/taxi. You can also order a bike (and yes there is a driver with this bike), you just hop on the back. It costs from Ratchathewi shopping malls district to Khaosan Road 35 Baht, a Grab cab/taxi would be 140 Baht. This is a cheap option for anyone who feels comfortable on a bike in the crazy Bangkok traffic, especially since there is no helmet for the guest.

Another option that is totally worth checking out is the boats that run in the canals. Fares depend on the length on your journey (I paid 9.50 Baht from the Ratchathewi district with all the shopping malls to stop Phanfa Bridge which is a 10 min walk from Khaosan Road). You might have to walk from and to the boat stop a bit. However, considering the crazy traffic jams in Bangkok you might be even with that bit of walking quicker.
