Everything from cars, motorbikes and Tuk Tuk's form part of the traffic in Bangkok but a certain taxi driver couldn't be more proud of what he does every day.

Khun Johnny, or better known as 'Mister Johnny', is a taxi driver on the bustling streets of Bangkok who one day hopes to own the car of his dreams - a Porsche Cayenne.

Getting there
