Getting Around Bangkok – BTS Skytrain for Newbies

September 28, 2011   /   byAnkita Sodhia  / Categories :  Bangkok, Destinations, Sightseeing, Thailand

Bangkok is notorious for its congestion. Here are some tips to help you navigate this city effectively 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) – where you can interchange between them.

BTS Skytrain fares are between 15 – 40 THB and tickets can be purchased from ticket vending machines. Be sure to keep some change on hand – but if you don’t have any the cashiers can help you out. You can also purchase top up cards with a specific amount of cash or trips on them.
