Amazing Adventure invites you to feel the heartbeat of one of the most famous Asian cities, Bangkok; it is very easy to do – just choose a public bus as a mode of your local transportation when you visit Bangkok, and you will feel yourself like a real Bangkokian.
Local buses until now remain the main mode of public transportation in Bangkok. Mass rapid transit lines are still developing, and there are 30 or 40 kilometers from BTS or MRT system to some capital’s districts. That is why Bangkokians use public buses on everyday basis.
There are several purposes of choosing a local bus for local people. Firstly, bus routes in Bangkok are really long; they can last for 50 kilometres. So, in many cases local people can go to work, or return home using only one bus without any transfer (or doing maximum one transfer). Secondly, local buses are much cheaper than mass rapid transit line systems; even a ride in an air-conditioned bus will cost to a passenger maximum 25 baht; meanwhile, travelling by BTS or MRT can cost more than 100 baht one-way (especially if there’s a need to change lines).
But travelling by a bus is an interesting experience for tourists, too. First of all, such a travelling is a real adventure tour; sometimes, bus drivers behave themselves like a “Formula One” drivers. Secondly, it is a unique opportunity to see life of a big city from the inside, to feel how the heart of Bangkok beats. Finally, you can join one of the teams and take part in a treasure hunt – it is popular in Bangkok, too. Choose any type of bus – old-fashioned one that have only fans, and its windows are open, or new air-conditioned bus with permanently closed windows, and enjoy your travelling across the Bangkok. By the way, using a local bus is a way to take the cheapest excursion tour ever – as little as for 8 baht you can see real Bangkok life along with many popular tourist attractions!
