Travel from Bangkok Railway Station
Bangkok’s main railway station is called Hua Lamphong and its located in Bangkok’s China Town area 4.8 km from the Khao San Road and 6.8 km from the start of the Sukhumvit Road. There are several options for travel from Hua Lamphong Railway Station to other parts of Central Bangkok and the best option depends upon where you are going, how much time you have and how easily you can walk with your baggage.
The options for travel from Bangkok Railway Station are:
- Metro: Hua Lamphong Railway Station has its own metro station. There is a single underground train line running through the city with stops on route to the north of the city centre at the Silom Road, Sukhumvit Road and Chatuchak Park. The metro also connects with the BTS system (overhead suburban railway) and the Airport Link to Suvarnabhumi International Airport. If you can cope with carrying your bags through the metro system then it is the fastest and cheapest way to travel, although the metro does not go to riverside areas such as the Khao San Road.
- Meter Taxi: If you get a meter taxi from the official taxi rank to the left hand side of the platforms then meter taxis are a fast and efficient form of transport which is not particularly expensive. Travel by taxi, however, can be slow in heavy traffic to areas such Siam Square and the Sukhumvit Road.
- Tuk-tuk: Tuk-tuks can be relatively expensive and we only recommend them for short journeys to destinations in China Town and the nearby riverside areas. There are no fixed prices and foreigners tend to be overcharged as do non-local Thai people. Agree a price in advance.
- Motorbike Taxi: Motorbike taxis can be as cheap as meter taxis and a bit quicker in bad traffic, but more dangerous also. For short journey by solo travellers without much luggage motorbike taxis can be a good option. Agree a price in advance.
- Bus: Travel by bus in Bangkok is cheap, but slow and sometimes confusing as to which bus to take. Take bus services 40, 159 or 507 to travel to Bangkok’s Southern bus terminal. The A1 bus travels to Bangkok’s Northern bus terminal.
- Chao Phraya Riverboat: The most pleasant and cheap way to travel from Hua Lamphong Railway to the Khao San Road is to walk 1.2 km from the station to Pier Number 4 (The Marine Department Pier) on the Chao Phraya Express Boat route and take any boat heading north to Pier Number 13 (Phra Ahtit Ferry Pier) and from there its a 900 metre walk to the Khao San Road. The Chao Phraya Express Boat operates during daylight hours and costs between 10 THB and 32 THB per person depending upon which ferry you take.
