About Travel to Bangkok
Bangkok has lots of different public transport networks which together cover the entire city. Although meter taxis are good value for money in Bangkok they are not always the fastest way to travel, and foreign visitors in particular often struggle to find a taxi driver who will agree to use their meter, instead insisting upon higher fixed prices for journeys. Public transport in Bangkok is generally cheap and many of the services, particularly the more modern services, are fast and reliable.
The fastest and most reliable public transport systems are the BTS, the MRT and the Airport Link. The BTS service, also known locally as the ‘Skytrain’, has the largest coverage of the city’s suburban electric train networks. The BTS covers nearly all of Central Bangkok, except that is for the riverside area near the Khao San Road and the Grand Palace. The MRT network is an undergorund train service with two lines.
For leisure visitors to Bangkok the MRT is most unseful in respect of linking Bang Sue in the North of the city to Hua Lamphong Railway Station in the South, with stops on route at popular destinations such as Chatuchak Market, the Sukhumvit Road and the Silom Road. The Airport link runs from Central Bangkok travelling Eastward terminating at Suvarnabhumi International Airport, with interchange stations on route allowing easy access to the BTS and MRT networks.
For travel to riverside areas of Bangkok not currently connected to the BTS or MRT networks there are three public transport options: bus, canal boat and river boat. Bus services in bangkok are very cheap but generally quite slow. Canal boat services, on the other hand, tend to provide a faster journey and are just as cheap. The busiest of these in Bangkok is the Khlong Saen Saep canal boat service which runs East to West through Bangkok with stops on route including near to the Sukhumvit Road and Siam Square, and terminating in the West at a pier near the Golden Mount, which is walking distance from the Khao San Road. River boats services in Bangkok are also fast and cheap.
The Chao Phraya Express Boat service plies the Chao Phraya River, which runs North to South on the Western side of Central Bangkok. This service stops at piers close to a number of very significant places in Bangkok including the Khao San Road, Grand Palace and about 10 minutes walk away from Hua Lamphong Railway Station.
