If you are moving to Bangkok you will need to know that the driver seat is in the left side, that you will find massage places every 100 meters, and that a bike can hold on to 4 people hahaha

Bangkok is a city with its own unique culture, customs and interesting people. Thus, one should take time to know the mores, taboos and laws of the city. In addition, one must learn few basic Thai words that can help in communicating with people to be used in transportation, travel and in everyday activities.

Bangkok has a reputation for terrible traffic jams. However, someone moving to Bangkok should know the city’s traffic problems have improved significantly. Now that public transport options include ever-expanding Sky Train and Metro systems, it is possible to travel to many of the city’s neighborhoods easily.

It is extremely important when grabbing a taxi in Bangkok, to check that the taximeter is on. The taximeter is a device which calculates the fare from place to place. Usually, when people first visit Bangkok, they fall victim to scams from Thai taxis trying to earn an extra buck or two by not switching on the taximeter.

Bangkok is very busy, during the day and night. traffic here is really bad. You need to use the skytrain or metro if possible but then there will be so many people using as well. Time preparation is very important because you would not want to be late.

4. They should learn some Thai language.
5. They should be prepared for the worst traffic.
6. They can buy almost everything here.
7. You should be careful about what you say about the Royal family.
8. Bangkok isn’t just ladyboys and red-light districts.
9. You’ll be expected to give up your seat on the BTS or MRT for an older person, and you’ll frequently see them push to the front of queues while in shops or waiting for public transport.

Bangkok is a wonderful sprawling city where nobody sleeps. It is a bustling place where there is always something to do. Consider visiting the major attractions such as Emquartier and Siam Paragon. These two places are the cream of the crop when it comes to shopping. If exquisite cuisine is more to your palette, head to Terminal 21. Known for its affordable but delicious array of cuisine from around the world it offers a wide variety of local and international dishes alike for less than a dollar.
