Aaron arrived on Friday the 13th and we’ve made the most of our time so far. We explored Bangkok via the sky-train the subway. The subway is the nicest and cleanest mass transit train I have ever been on. It is fast, efficient, and easy to use. The only drawback is that there is only one line. It offers connecting service to the sky-train which is also a very nice system. There are two sky-train lines and between the two systems you can travel around Bangkok to almost anywhere you want to go. This method of travel is much better than taxi or tuk-tuk. While taxis are nice, air conditioned, and incredibly cheap… they’re prone to sitting in giant traffic jams that make LA driving look like Eastern Montana.
