In Bangkok there's an environmental way to travel for tourists – bikes. This created a network of rental stations, where you can borrow a bike, ride it around the city, and then return it to any other station. On the one hand, it's convenient, but on the other hand, lacks and shortcomings:

  • Traffic in Bangkok is too dangerous to travel by bike, and dedicated bike lanes there. Where Bicycle paths are, they will still be busy parked the motorbike or commercial mobile shops
  • Free rental period of only 15 minutes, then paid in full
  • Not mobile app map stations
  • To begin to use them, you must first visit the office with your passport

If that doesn't scare you, here's the usage instructions:

Rental system called Pun Pun Bike website http://www.punpunbikeshare.com/but it is only in the Thai language, although already three years promise to make for English.

Rental stations are located in tourist areas in the centre and near attractions, all of them 50. But the Peninsula district Ratanakosin, where the Grand Palace, Wat Pho, Khao San road tourist area and many interesting places, spared. A map of the stations can be seen on the rental station, and on the website, but the website only in Thai language. Also here is a Google map with marked stations https://www.google.com/maps.

The station is automated, so you take the bikes unattended, they shall be exempted auto lock, and return them to "stall". Therefore, in order to begin to use them, you first have to visit the office to register with your passport.

Office, title, conditional of course, we are talking about stations manned by people and carry out the registration. These stations are on the streets of Phra Athit and Bangkok. There will need to fill out the registration form to purchase a smart card. It is something like a credit card, which then will need to pay in terminal stations. It costs 320 baht (653.88 RUB, see the currency of Thailand and the exchange rate), after purchase it will be credited with 100 baht, and the rest will have to replenish. With this card, go to any station, relate her terminal and enter a pin, after which the bike rasplachivaetsya of "stall" and go timing. From this point, you are fully responsible for leased vehicles, so do not be amiss to have a cord-lock. The security will not prevent a bike helmet and elbow pads.

The countdown stops when you return the Bicycle to the same or another station, and then removed the money from the card:

  • the first 15 minutes are free
  • up to 1 hour – 10 baht (20.43 RUB)
  • up to 3 hours – 20 baht (40.87 RUB)
  • up to 5 hours – 40 baht (81.74 RUB)
  • up to 6 hours – 60 baht (122.6 RUB)
  • up to 8 hours – 80 baht (163.47 RUB)
  • more than 8 hours – 100 baht (204.34 RUB)

Very strange payment system, isn't it. Somehow, for 1 hour from 5 to 6 will have to pay 20 baht for 1 hour and for other hours at 10 baht. If you return a bike after midnight, you will receive a fine of 500 baht.

Returned the bike to the station is also very simple: put it in free space, and again put the card to the terminal. If the free space at the station will not be possible to call the telephone operator where you tell me where is the nearest free space.

Hello! Yes, this is the best route to Asok, but if you need it Nana, it is easier to drive to the last station Phaya Thai and change there to a green line Skytrain to Nana. So it will be a little more expensive, but only one transplant. ...
