Travel Tips

Bangkok's roads are easy to get confused. Some of them have several names, and some are simply numbered.

If you are planning to travel on your own, then remember that the branches from the main roads are called"soi" (alleys or alleys). Each lane has its own number. In this case, even numbers of soi are on one side of the street, and odd numbers are on the opposite. When composing an address, the soi number and house number are always indicated.

You can buy a map of Thailand and instructions for it in most hotels in the city.
