Bangrak Pier welcomed us with lots of people, extreme heat and very expensive cabs. The best way to discover and move around the different islands is to rent a scooter. And yes, it is possible to ride on it with two people, four backpacks and not fall off 😊 Tried and tested! Cost to rent varies from 200 to 300 baht ($6-9) per day. Most places require you to leave your passport as a deposit, some only take a photocopy of your passport. We never had issues leaving our passports at the various local vendors.
