Whilst in Bangkok tourists should probably make use of the hotel taxi service where they are unfamiliar with the Thai language and do not know their way around the city. Avoid using tuk- tuks as the drivers of these often exploit the visitors' lack of knowledge with regards to the city and drop them off at sex shops and other illicit places. Before going on organized tours tourists should make sure they use registered travel agent services only.
As the days can be extremely hot in Bangkok, it is advisable to make use of a cap or a hat to avoid heat stroke. Always carry the following numbers with you in case there is an emergency.
Tourist Police: 1155
