Tom: Jess, we both live in Bangkok.
Tom: We travel around every day. How do you find the traffic here?
Jess: It's pretty awful. Yeah, I think especially on friday afternoons and at rush hour every day, you can't really take a taxi or travel by car because you can't get anywhere.
Tom: What kind of options are there for traveling around?
Jess: There's motorcycle taxis which I won't take because I think they're too dangerous.
Tom: What do you take?
Jess: I take motorbikes a lot, but I like the choice that we have in Bangkok. There are motorbikes. There's also tuk-tuks, which are kind of three-wheeled cars. There's the skytrain and the subway and taxis and private cars and a whole range of buses. Do you ever take the bus?
Tom: No, I don't take the bus here. I think if I'm going to be stuck in traffic, I'd like to be in an air-conditioned taxi, not in a hot, sweaty bus.
