  rot thaeksih (taxi)

 

Thailand

Three lanes of taxi-metered cabs on Bangkok's Silom Road. There are reportedly an estimated 240,000 taxis in the capital alone and apart from a few parking spots at airports, Thailand has no taxi stands as is common in many western countries.

 

Taxis therefore keep on circulating with traffic or try to find a spot in front of a hotel, and very often large numbers of them congest the streets near popular entertainment venues.
