TH04: "Isn't it fun fun fun, to be in number one"

A ride on a not crowded minibus service #1.


I had been led to believe that it may not be a straightforward experience taking the public transport, especially the buses, with my complete lack of Thai language. Based on my grand total of two rides, I think it could not have been better. The ticket was less than a tenth of what a taxi would have cost me, I got a comfortable seat and the interior was well ventilated (number of ceiling fans + open windows). 


The driver is on the right side, not visible, and the lady in dark blue, up left is the conductor. She was kind enough to point me out where I needed to get down. So overall, an uneventful ride, fortunately.

Public transportation is the best way to get around in any city.

Another new experience
It sounds like a very enjoyable ride.
I remember my daughter telling me that I would have to be quick and probably have to board Bangkok buses on the run, Ayush. Fortunately I was able to get on board without mishap and thoroughly enjoyed the ride; just as you did here.
When people are helpful it makes being a visitor so much more enjoyable
Unusual sight : I like it
I bet you enjoyed the ride Ayush! Fine capture.
Right on! I love this bit of photojournalism!!!
having had the opposite bus experience to this (crowded, hot, dirty) I know where I'd rather be!
