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.
