Bangkok's traffic is notorious. However, with excellent and modern public transport systems in place, Bangkok is surprisingly easy to navigate your way around. The Skytrain (BTS) and underground (MRT) rail systems connect the main shopping, entertainment and business areas of the city, while Chao Phraya river boats and express boats can be used to explore many historic sites and attractions at the riverside - also a way to escape road traffic to go places to/from our location (using Thewes Pier situated nearby). Taxis are cheap and appear on virtually every corner. Tuk-tuks (a three-wheeled motor car; akwsys a favorite Bangkok attraction (it"s worth a ride at least once albeit the marked-up price todays to cater to foreigners' interest for a fun ride. TukTuk's price goes by distance of a flat fee from Thb 50 or 100 to high up 500. You can practice your negotiation skills!

I am a retired international civil servant with the United Nations (working in different capacities; from assisting women, children and refugees and community services to disaster management). I travel often to visit relatives and friends around the world and go to new places where I have not been. I sometimes do volunteer work at the Oakland public school where my daughter teaches. My life motto is "Live and Let Live." I like my privacy and respect that of others. At the same time, I always find it a pleasure to meet new people during every journey I make.
