Commuting in Bangkok

Postby BrownOnionThighs » Tue Oct 26, 2010 11:12 am

I was not sure if this should be here or in 'commuting' ... not quite touring anyway.

I will be staying in Bangkok for about 2 months and was hoping to get a bit of riding in. Now I have done a bit of driving in BKK and that's scary - not sure how I'd go without the two tonne of sheet metal around me.

Does anyone have any experience riding in BKK? Is this even a plausible proposition? Here's roughly how I'd drive the route.

I've seen a few people just riding on the roads with the traffic, but that's pretty much suicide I reckon. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.
