Getting Around Bangkok




Getting to Bangkok





Route 1
From Northern to Bangkok, driving along Phahonyothin Road.

Route 2
From Southern to Bangkok, driving along Phetkasem Road.

Route 3
From Eastern to Bangkok, driving along Sukhumvit Road.

Visitors can travel by bus to Bangkok from Thailand's neighboring countries with varying levels of ease.

From Malaysia, one can cross by bus into Thailand through various border checkpoints in Songkhla, Yala, and Narathiwat provinces, although most busses will head to the hub of bus travel into, out of, and around southern Thailand, Hat Yai. From Hat Yai there are direct busses to Bangkok.

Most busses from Laos originate in Vientiane and cross the Mekong River to the Thai border town of Nong Khai, where it is possible to arrange for a bus transfer to Bangkok.

The primary route on a Cambodian bus to Thailand is across the border at the respective towns of Poipet and Aranyaprathet. From Aranyaprathet one can easily arrange bus or minibus transport to Bangkok. Timetables

Bangkok serves as a major international hub for air travel, with the new Suvarnabhumi International Airport (BKK) hosting over 40 million visitors and transit passengers each year. Dozens of domestic and international air carriers bring passengers to Bangkok from most major cities in Asia, Europe, North America, and Australia.

In addition to outstanding dining and shopping, the Suvarnabhumi Airport features a transportation center that provides visitors with easy transfer from the airport to destinations throughout the kingdom as well as rail, bus, taxi, and limousine service to all districts in the Bangkok metropolitan area. The city center is only 30 kilometers west of the airport and features a new electric rail line that provides easy access to the city center.

The former primary airport, Don Muang, located 20 kilometers north of the city center, no longer services international flights, functioning as a minor domestic airport and airstrip for charter flights to and from Bangkok. Timetables

At present, the only standard train service to Bangkok is via the Malaysian border town of Butterworth. Travelers from Singapore and Kuala Lumpur can travel by train to Bangkok, but not without stopping to change trains. The journey from Singapore can last up to 48 hours as two changes of trains are required and there are numerous stops along the way to Bangkok.

First class sleeper cars can make a train trip to Bangkok more enjoyable, though comfort and convenience come at a price; one can travel the Eastern & Oriental Express, a throw-back colonial-style luxury train that services Butterworth and Bangkok on a once weekly schedule. Timetables


Guide to Bangkok

Bangkok, also known as "Krungthep" [กรุงเทพ] which means 'the City of Angels', was ranked as the best city in the world in 2008 by "Travel and Leisure Magazine". Bangkok is famous for its temples, the Grand Palace, some of Asia's largest shopping malls and Asia's largest outdoor weekend market (Chatuchak). All sites can easily be reached by Skytrain (BTS) or Underground (MRT). Bangkok is highly appreciated for its wide selection of restaurants, everything from authentic street-side eateries to a number of fine dining establishments. In addition, Bangkok has probably the best nightlife in Asia. The wide choice of accommodation, from high end international hotels to guesthouses meets the demands of every traveler. For relaxation, Bangkok offers plenty of Spas and wellness centers as well as medical facilities of high Western standards. Bangkok really started to develop after World War II. The economic centre shifted from the orderly planned city of Rattanakosin in an eastward direction, leaving Bangkok without an obvious centre. Book Now & Save on Bangkok Hotels
