So what if you get lost? You are travelling - you might discover something new. Take a card with your hotel name on it so you can take a taxi back if you get lost. Is it so hard to hail a cab- or Tuk Tuk? It seems like 99% of the people on this site are incapable of real travel. Take a chance. Get out and try something on your own without a mommy to protect you for once.

I am not a fan of tuk tuk's. They are slower obviously than most taxi's and the fumes in Bankok are bad enough you do not want to be riding behind tailpipes and the little engine fumes of the tuk tuk. If you want to do it for the experience for a mile trip, why not, but with all a trip to Asia costs a taxi or Ratt and Poom (CM) or Tong and Kai (as I said earlier I can only rave about Ratt).
She went out of her way making 2 trips and 7-8 calls and 3 emails to a porclein cottage factory that was making me a custom tea pot. It took one crafts-person almost 3 months to make and it cost me $105USD and in New York they are $600-$750. Because Ratt was concerned about the cost of DHL from Bangkok and that it might get broken she had her visiting sister, from Boston, bring it back to the US for me and her sister send it UPS-FRAGILE ($26 UPS charge). Now that is not going the extra mile, I do not know what is.
