Elephant Bus Tours has blown fresh air into city tourism in Thailand, with the country’s first open-top double-decker buses arriving in Bangkok.
The bus route crisscrosses the city, taking in Bangkok’s most popular destinations, including markets, shopping malls, cultural hotspots, as well as spas, restaurants, and temples. It allows passengers to check out interesting spots casually without being tied into a guided experience.
Using GPS coordination aligned with audio tech, the buses also provide informative, geographically accurate descriptions of all the famous landmarks that appear en route in seven different languages, including Thai, English, Mandarin, Korean, German, Spanish, and French. The open-top upper decks allow a pleasant breeze to wash over passengers, an effective counter to the city’s heat, while the bottom deck is fully air-conditioned.
In partnership with Spanish tour bus operators City Sightseeing, Elephant Bus Tours offers three different price points for unlimited travel on the striking red buses, over 24, 48 and 72 hours, all valid for six months.
