Travel from Bangkok Station
Bangkok’s main train station is called Hua Lamphong Railway Station and it is located in the China Town area of Central Bangkok near to the Chao Phaya river. Trains from Nam Phong terminate at Hua Lamphong Railway Station, however, you can also choose the leave the train at Bang Sue Railway Station before you reach Hua Lamphong Railway Station. If your final destination is either the area around the Sukhumvit Road or the Silom Road then you can save time by alighting at Bang Sue Railway Station and continuing your journey on the Bangkok metro system (MRT). Train travel in Central Bangkok can be very slow and by switching to the MRT (which is very quick and fairly cheap) can cut 30 to 60 minutes off your total journey time.
The easiest way to travel onward from Hua Lamphong Railway Station is also to take the MRT. There is an entrance to an MRT station near the side entrance to the main train station building. If you are planning to travel to the Khao San Road area of Bangkok, or the riverside area near to the Grand Palace, then you need to either take a taxi, tuk-tuk or walk to the river and board the Chao Phraya Express Boat service. Neither the metro (MRT) or elevated railway system (BTS) currently connect with these either of these two riverside areas.
