I love Thailand, but like most people I hate Bangkok traffic.
Driving in a country that is ranked the 2nd worst in the World in terms of road fatalities has its own unique challenges. I’m not suggesting that Rafferty’s rules apply, but many people just drive by what feels natural to them.
You may have already experienced Bangkok traffic from the back seat of a Taxi or Tuk Tuk, either remaining blissfully unaware of what’s going on around you or thinking that the speeding and near misses were all just a whole lot of fun. But it’s a completely different feeling when you’re actually sitting behind the wheel of a car in Bangkok.
I hear many expats claiming that driving in Thai is easy, but they fail to mention that they live upcountry and that they have never been in control of a vehicle in Bangkok.
Please join with me as I share my top ten tips for surviving a journey on the streets and highways of Bangkok and Sumat Prakan.
All the footage was captured by my dash cam over the course of 5 days.
