Traffic congestion in Bangkok, where I live is, worse than I ever experienced in Honiara. I was often frustrated travelling the short distance between Rove and Panatina due to the heavy traffic but getting around the city of Bangkok by car, bus or taxi can be quite exhausting especially during the wet season. With a population of some 10 million inhabitants transportation is crucial to people’s lives, work and the economy.
I avoid travelling by road whenever possible because, fortunately, the city has very good rail services, both above ground and below ground. The below ground service – the subway- is fast, economical, reliable, efficient and trusted by thousands of workers that use the service every day.
