ibis Styles Bangkok Khaosan Viengtai - 3 stars hotel - BTS Skytrain

BTS Skytrain

It’s time to explore! There’s no need for a car when it comes to discovering Bangkok! The city’s public transport options are easy to use, with the BTS Skytrain a popular choice. Since its start back in 1999, the BTS Skytrain has been a key part of travel around the Big Mango.

How to use the BTS Skytrain?

Passengers enter each station and use the coin-based ticket machines, or buy their ticket from the staff at the counter. The main choice is between various one day single-destination tickets or pre-paid cards. Top up these “rabbit cards” with cash amounts or trip amounts. Discounted rates available for students or the elderly. Nowadays, you can use the cash stored in your rabbit card to pay for things in participating shops!

Exploring Bangkok easier than ever

With its network and routes ever expanding, it’s becoming easier to ditch taxis and cars for the BTS instead. Many attractions, offices and shopping malls are reachable via skywalks from the nearest BTS skytrain. It’s a convenient way to help you reach your destination without wilting in the Bangkok heat.

Here are some key BTS skytrain stations to keep in mind:

  • Mo Chit Station: This is the spot to explore Bangkok’s famous Chatuchak weekend market! Follow the direction of the crowds to shop ‘til you drop!
  • Phaya Thai Station: Swap over to the Airport Rail Link from this station! Barring busses, it’s a budget-friendly way to get to and from Suvarnabhumi airport.
  • Siam Station: Travellers looking to switch over to the dark green (Silom) line can do so here. It’s also known as a shopper’s paradise! Visitors can browse glitzy malls like Siam Paragon and Siam Center or the roadside stalls of Siam Square. Use the elevated skywalk to head towards CentralWorld or Central Chidlom. Those looking to pay respects at the Erawan shrine should either get off at Siam or Chidlom station.
  • Asok Station: If you’re seeking Bangkok’s nightlife in all its forms, get off here! Airport-themed mall Terminal21 is right next to the station. Asok is also one of the two interchange stations with the MRT underground trains.
  • Sala Daeng Station: The second MRT interchange station! This station connects you to the Silom area of Bangkok. It’s home to more nightlife, the business and embassy district, as well as Bangkok’s popular Lumphini park.
  • Saphan Taksin Station: Time to experience life by the river! Hop on a tourist boat, or connect to a network of riverside shuttle-boats. These can take you anywhere from five-star hotels to shopping destinations like Iconsiam.

From your hotel to the BTS skytrain

If you’re staying at ibis Styles Bangkok Khaosan Viengtai, getting to the BTS skytrain is easy with some creative routing. Hop on a motorcycle taxi to either BTS National Stadium or BTS Ratchathewi in a brisk 20 minutes. If travelling by taxi, add some more time to factor in traffic. Otherwise, the hotel is actually closer to the MRT underground station Sanamchai. Hotel guests can grab a ride on the hotel’s complimentary daily shuttle. From there, swap over to the BTS line at either MRT Sukhumvit or Silom stations.
