Thailand is indeed one of the most beautiful holiday destinations in the entire world, boasting an abundance of great, flavourful street-food, incredible landscapes (forest covered mountains in the north and pristine beaches in the south) and a truly fascinating culture, so it’s no wonder why so many people travel there each year to get a taste of it; the tourism minister reported that nearly 30 million foreigners visited their beaches, temples and bars in 2015 and the numbers for 2016 & 2017 are expected to be higher, reaching record figures.
Getting around Thailand is relatively easy, with a number of options. You can fly from Bangkok to the Southern region with relative ease, and there are plenty of coaches, mini-bus services and taxi firms.
The only cause for concern for some people is how notoriously dangerous the roads in Thailand can be. This article is not intending to put you off travelling to Thailand, but to consider your travel options carefully. For example, the number one cause for these accidents on the road is careless driving and speeding – If you consider a private taxi driver who is working around the clock, desperately trying to get from one job to the next as quickly as possible.
This is not to suggest that all taxi firms are unsafe, but it may be worth looking into a more reputable transfer service in order to secure a safer and more comfortable journey. We would also suggest you avoid the many tuk tuk drivers that will be battling for your every journey – you will regret it when you are sitting behind a Bangkok bus in the blistering heat with no air con and a mouthful of exhaust fumes.
Comfort Before Cost
There are a number of reputable taxi and transfer services that pride themselves on safety. While you will evidently be paying more for such a service, you will be able to relax, safe in the knowledge that your driver is in no rush to get you to your destination, but will abide the speed limits and place your comfort and safety at the very top of their priorities.
You can find companies that are very strict with their hiring policy, and ensure that all of their drivers are safe, responsible and insured.
Travelling made easier
By exploring this avenue of transportation you will find that travelling will no longer feel like such an encumbrance. There is nothing worse than being cramped up on an overcrowded bus for several hours with a load of strangers. Instead, you can relax in a comfortable, air conditioned car with only yourself, your travel companions and your very own private driver.
Such companies offer comprehensive transfer services, with guaranteed punctuality and comfort. You will be greeted with a warm welcome, a cold refreshing towel and some iced water to keep you hydrated after a long and exhausting flight – what more could you want?
You do have the option of flagging down a taxi outside the airport, but you will then be competing with a tonne of other travellers, weary from their long journeys. After an exhausting and long flight, what could be worse than having to wait even longer to find transportation to your hotel?
By exploring the various companies that offer airport transfers in Thailand, you will be able to make your travelling infinitely easier. Simply get off the plane, collect your luggage and then be greeted by your very own driver. No need to haggle over price, nor should you have to worry about being ripped off. Everything is pre-paid and arranged; all you need to do is climb into the comfortable taxi and let your driver do the rest
