Quite a few men in Bangkok are employed as motorcycle taxi drivers.

Off every major street in Bangkok are smaller neighborhood streets called “Soi’s.” On every soi is a crew of motorcycle taxi drivers that transport people short distances (Thais don’t really like to walk). Weaving in and out of traffic on a motorcycle is one of the most thrilling things to do in Bangkok!

This particular street employs the most motorcycle taxi drivers I’ve ever seen, at peak hours there are often over 50 drivers waiting in line and zooming back and forth.
