  • Metro: The first and quickest option is to take an underground train. Adjacent to the train station is an MRT (Metro) station which go on one route through the City, via Silom, Sukhumvit Road and up to Krung Thep Aphiwat Central Terminal in the north of Bangkok. The Bangkok Metro system is modern, clean and efficient.
  • Express Boat: A second slower, but more pleasurable, option is to take an Express Boat along the Chao Phraya river. This is a good option if you plan to travel to areas near the river such as the Khao San Road. From the train station you need to walk about 1,200 metres down to the Chao Phraya river to the Harbour Department Pier. For a description of the journey in reverse see our guide to How to get from Khao San to Bangkok Hua Lamphong Railway Station by public transport.

Hotels in Bangkok

There are some very good hotels near Hua Lamphong Railway Station, which is in Bangkok’s Yaowarat (China Town) district. Yaowarat is an exciting area and the location of Bangkok’s most interesting temples, markets, and restaurants. Bangkok’s China Town has for many years been a much less popular area with foreign tourists than the Khao San or Sukhumvit districts of Bangkok.

However, this is changing rapidly with better access and facilities being introduced to the China Town area by the city’s municipal authorities, including helpful English language signs having been installed on most major roads in the area. The hotels in the area have also improved with a thriving boutique hotel scene including some very well done conversions of Yaowarat’s wooden riverside homes, such as the excellent Loy La Long Hotel.
