Travel in Bangkok

The easiest way to travel from Bangkok’s main train station to other destinations in Bangkok is to take Bangkok’s fast modern and efficient underground train service, which is called the MRT. There is an MRT station very close to the train station, and an entrance to that station, (Hua Lamphong MRT Station) on the right hand side of the platforms as you alight from trains in Bangkok. Follow the escalator down into the underpass and then follow the signs to the MRT station. There are ticket machines by the entrance to the MRT station which take coins and notes and have an ‘English Language’ option. Nearly all journeys cost less than 50 THB per person. The line runs from the train station to Bang Sue Train Station in the north of the Bangkok via the Silom and Sukhumvit Roads, and there are several MRT stations where you connect to the BTS overground commuter train network (the ‘Skytrain’) and also to the Airport Link, which runs from the centre of Bangkok out to the International Airport.

Some parts of Bangkok are not currently connected to either the MRT or BTS systems. The area by the river where the Grand Palace is located and the Khao San Road area are not connected. You can travel to these locations by bus (a slow but cheap option and a bit complicated to work out), or taxi, or tuk-tuk, or if you are a but more adventurous and able to walk a couple of kilometres you can take the Chao Phraya Express Boat service. The nearest Chao Phraya Express Boat Pier is Pier Number 4 (called ‘The Marine Department Pier’) which is 1,200 metres walk from the train station. The Chao Phraya Express Boat service is a cheap and pleasant way to travel around the city with stops on route near to the Grand Palace (Pier Number 8 – Tha Tien Pier) and the Khao San Road (Pier Number 13 – Phra Arthit Pier).
