Getting Around

Bangkok is notorious for its congestion. Here are some tips to navigate this city effectively.

By public transit

BTS Skytrain

BTS Skytrain
From the Amari Watergate Bangkok

BTS Chit Lom station is approximately a 10 - 15 minute walk from the Amari Watergate. Cross Petchburi Road (in front of the Amari Watergate), proceed over the foot bridge with Central World on your right and you will come to the sky walk. Walk to the left (away from Central World) to get to the ticket machines. Walk to the right to get to Siam Paragon (about 10 minutes away).

The Sukhumvit Line travels alongside Sukhumvit Road, Siam Square and then follows Phahonyothin Road, where it ends at Mo Chit (N8), near Chatuchak Market.

The Silom Line and Sukhumvit Line come together at Siam (CEN) - here you can interchange between them.

BTS Skytrain fares are between 15 - 40 THB and tickets can be purchased from ticket vending machines.

MRT Underground

Take a left out of the hotel, followed by a left at the corner, and walk straight for 10 minutes.

The Airport Rail Link connects directly to Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi International Airport.

The Express Line starts at the airport and brings you directly to Makkasan (City Air Terminal) in about 15 minutes at a cost of 150 THB.

Trains run every 15 minutes from 6:00 till midnight.

The City Line stops at all stations and at Phaya Thai, you can transfer onto the BTS Skytrain and continue your way.

Bangkok’s Metered Taxis

Taxis

Metered taxis are a comfortable way to get around town - but there are some key things to remember.

Key Things to Remember:

  • If the driver claims that your destination is closed, doesn’t know where it is, or tries to take you elsewhere, just get out of the taxi
  • All taxis are now metered
  • The flag fall fare is 35 THB
  • Most trips within downtown cost less than 100 baht
  • Except from the airport there are no surcharges - even at night; don’t believe drivers who try to tell you otherwise
  • A lit red sign on the front window means t the taxi is available
  • Many drivers will "forget" to start the meter in order to overcharge you
  • Most will start the meter when asked politely to do so
  • If the driver refuses to use the meter after a couple of attempts, simply exit the taxi
  • Be sure to either know the correct pronunciation of your destination, or have it written in Thai, as most drivers speak little English
  • Be sure to have small bills (100 THB or less)
  • Tips are not necessary

Bangkok’s Tuk-tuks

Tuk-tuks

A Bangkok experience is not complete without at least one Tuk-tuk. But remember these key points.

Key Points to Remember:

  • Tuk-tuks are not good for rides of more than 5 - 10 minutes
  • Rides longer than the above are not worth the price - which is usually much more than a metered taxi
  • As always be weary of scams - avoid jaunts to tailors and gem stores
