Transport of Thailand in pictures

For six months, while we lived in Thailand, I occasionallyI photographed all kinds of cars, bikes, people on bikes, public transport. And now I want to share these photos with you. Therefore, this time there are few words and almost only one photos.

Public transport

I already laid out something in my articles. But it's okay if I repeat, let everything be in one place. As a rule, tuk-tuki (a variety of motorcycles with a sidecar), sang-theo (pickups, where there are benches in the back), something like mini
buses (can be made based on whatwhatever you like), and regular buses from old (short distances) to new and comfortable (between cities). In some cities, tuk-tuks or sang-theo may look different, as they are made on the basis of other aggregates. I wrote about public transport here - Bangkok Metro, Bangkok bus stations, Bangkok train stations

Buses

Small buses run for short distances,often old. In addition, some of them have air conditioning. Also, these buses are used for movement within the city, but there are also modern ones. Sometimes, on some routes go minivans. Between the cities, comfortable air-conditioned buses and a toilet (often double-decker) with VIP, 1st and 2nd class go for long distances. Classes do not differ significantly from each other - the width of the seat, food, speed of movement and the presence of a toilet.

Minibuses, Sang Teo

Sang-theo is covered pick-ups, inside whichmade the seat. This is the most popular form of transport in the city and the surrounding suburbs. It can also go more and more units, in the form of trucks, where the body is converted to passengers. Usually, the fare is about 20 baht (20 rubles) inside the city, or a little higher, if further.

Tuk-tuk in Thailand

Tuk-tuki are usually made on the basis of a motorcycle withstroller. Only the stroller is not on the side, but in the back or front. Mostly tourists move on them, as this is the most expensive form of transport. A knock-knock can also be in the form of a small car. The fare is from 100 baht ($ 100), as a bargain.

Old cars

For some reason I have a special love for the oldcars (for Russian it does not apply). But not to those who were at the beginning of the last century, but rather in its second half. One of the favorite - Ford Mustang 60s. Of course, in Tae I did not see him, but there was something similar. Moreover, I do not know any names or characteristics, I just like to look at them.

Modern cars

Since Thailand has many farmers, workers, andas the roads outside the tracks are dirt, the most popular cars here are pick-ups. When I first came to the vegetable market, I immediately thought that our summer residents would be like that, but the collective farmers would envy the Thais. On Toyotas driving around ...

Unusual to us

In Thailand, as probably in any other country, there are various means of transportation that are not characteristic of our country. What is this for tourists, something for locals.

Motobike

The most popular way to move. First week in chiang mai we wondered where the sidewalks, where the pedestrians ... Sothat's all that's why there’s no need to walk when there is a bike. And how they drive there is a separate song, 3-4 people each, with bags and trunks. Sometimes even the driver is not visible for things.

Life hacking 1 - how to buy a good insurance

Choosing insurance is now unrealistically difficult, so to help all travelers, I compile a rating. To do this, I constantly monitor forums, study insurance contracts and use insurance by myself.

Life hacking 2 - how to find a hotel 20% cheaper

First, choose a hotel on Booking. They have a good offer base, but the prices are NOT the best! The same hotel can often be found 20% cheaper in other systems through the RoomGuru service.
