From Amari Watergate Bangkok:

There are two stations accessible by foot: BTS Chit Lom and BTS Ratchathewi. Both are a 10-15 minute walk from the hotel.

To get to BTS Chit Lom, you can cross the street to Platinum Fashion Mall and take the newly opened Sky Walk that connects directly to the station. You also have the option of walking to BTS Siam and Siam Square from here, which take another 10 minutes or so.

BTS Ratchathewi is found down Petchaburi Road from Amari Watergate Bangkok.

From Amari Boulevard Bangkok:

Amari Boulevard Bangkok is less than 5 minutes away from BTS Nana. All you have to do is walk out of the hotel’s soi and turn left toward the station.


Both hotels are found along the Bangkok BTS Sukhumvit Line, which mostly travels along Sukhumvit Road. Trains run all the way past Bang Na to Siam Square. It then follows Phahonyothin Road and ends at BTS Mo Chit, right next to to famous Chatuchak Market.

At BTS Siam, the Silom Line and Sukhumvit Line come together, and you can interchange between them.

Fares start at 15 THB and one-way tickets can be purchased from vending machines. However, you can also purchase top-up cards or tourist tickets if you’ll be travelling a lot. Just visit any station’s information counter for more details.
