Transportation

Your Own Personal Bus Plunge

Johnny Foreigner has some strange habits at times.

In Thailand it seems common for buses to drive around with the doors open:

Bangkok buses often seem to drive with the doors wide open. Given the heavy traffic here, it’s not usually too much of an issue given the bus is unlikely to exceed a speed of 4mph.

I’ve never seen this in any other country. Even Chinese buses drive with the doors closed, but I guess that’s to stop the human Tetris inside from spilling out onto the streets.

So if you ever get on a bus in Thailand, take extra special care to avoid starring in your own personal bus plunge.

Update: I have now seen a lady fall out of a Bangkok bus. And what was sad is that nobody really rushed to her aid. So please take care when using any form of transportation in Thailand (or anywhere else for that matter).
