Bangkok’s transportation infrastructure is modern and well-organized. The city has several electric rail systems, tens of thousands of taxis and fleets of buses, making it easy for travellers to go to cultural attractions, shopping malls, restaurants and entertainment venues.

Bangkok Mass Transit System (BTS)

Riding the BTS is one of the most convenient ways to get around Bangkok. Three BTS stations – namely Asoke, Mo Chit and Sala Daeng – are connected to the MRT. Meanwhile, the Phaya Tha BTS station provides access to the Airport Rail Link. 

Metropolitan Rapid Transit (MRT)

The MRT is the underground train system. Three MRT stations – namely Sukhumvit, Chatuchak and Silom – are connected to the BTS. Meanwhile, the Petchaburi MRT station provides access to the Airport Rail Link.

The Airport Rail Link station in Phaya Thai is connected to the BTS, while the station in Makassan is just walking distance from the MRT. The train service runs from 06:00 to midnight.
