Travel Within Bangkok
After arriving into Bangkok you have several options for onward travel in Bangkok. The most expensive of these is travelling by tuk-tuk. Tuk-tuks drivers wait outside the station for passengers. They do not use meters or fixed fares and are known for trying to charge as much as a passenger is willing to pay. They are, however, useful if you planning to stay near to the station and need to travel only a short distance. The next most expensive option is to travel by meter taxi.
If you are planning to take a taxi remember to use the official taxi rank which is overseen by the police, taxis which wait at other locations around the station tend not to want to use their meters. Taxis are helpful if you are travelling with children or lots of luggage. The downside of using meter taxis is if you are travelling during busy times of day, such as before or after the normal working day, when the roads around Central Bangkok become heavily congested and journeys can take 3 to 4 times long as they would during quieter times of day.
A cheaper, quicker and more environmentally friendly option than travelling by tuk-tuk or taxi is to take public transport. There is an MRT (metro) station accessible via an entrance in the train station. From the train station you can travel direct via the MRT to popular destinations such as the Silom and Sukhumvit Roads, and you can also use the MRT to connect with the BTS overhead train system and the Airport Link train system to Suvarnabhumi International Airport.
One place you can’t currently travel to via the MRT or BTS networks is the area near the popular Khao San Road. Rather than use a taxi or a tuk-tuk to travel to the Khao San Road area from Hua Lamphong Railway Station you could instead walk 1.2 km to Pier Number 4 (The Marine Department Pier) on the Chao Phraya River and take a Chao Phraya Express Boat headed north. The journey takes about 30 minutes and costs less than 20 THB per person to reach Pier 13 (Phra Arthit Pier), and from there its a short walk to reach the Khao San Road.
