Photographer's Note

Here I am, in a typical Bangkok cab. I was inspired by all the red lights appearing at night-time as it create this feeling of ambience.


These typical Bangkok cab like this Toyota Altis can be rented out from the taxi renting place for 550 per shift. The driver has to pay for the gas themself, so the cost per day is around 800 baht, anything after that it's their profit.

It's amazing how Taxi Meter in Thailand managed to stay the same price since the beginning when it was introduced. It's mainly because they use gas instead of gasoline. With the gasoline approaching 28 baht a litre these days, and gas at only 8-9 baht per litre, it's such a bargain for these drivers! The cost of driving these taxis are not affecting by increasing oil price, very interesting!
