About Travel in Bangkok
Bangkok has two rapid public transport systems and other more basic some more slower suburban public transport services. The best known of these rapid public transport system is the BTS, which is also known locally as the ‘Skytrain‘ as it travel through the city on elevated train track giving passengers great views across the city. The BTS system has two lines, the Silom Line which runs from the Siam Square area to the other side of river to Bang Wa, and the Sukhumvit line which runs along the Sukhumvit Road through the Siam Square area and then northwards to Chatuchak Park. The other rapid transport system is the MRT, which is an underground train line starting from Bangkok Train Station in the China Town area of Bangkok and running north to Bang Sue Railway Station and then turning west to the other side of the Chao Phraya River.
Bangkok has lots of bus services, which for the greater part are cheap, slow and unpleasantly hot. For people visiting the city for pleasure then a better option is to try taking a Chao Phraya Express Boat service. The Chao Phraya Express Boat service is commuter ferry operation with 37 stops along the Chao Phraya River which runs north to south through Bangkok. Many of the city’s most interesting attractions, such as the Royal Palace and Wat Arun are accessible via Chao Phraya Express Boat ferries. Saphan Taksin BTS station is very close to the main Chao Phraya Express boat pier and is the main interchange station between the river ferries and the city’s rapid transport systems.
