"Transportation around Thailand" Metro - Subway Tip by bulldogtwo

Metro - Subway, Bangkok: 20 reviews and 32 photos

The train takes about 15-16 hours, leaves at about 1800 and arrives into Bangkok the next morning about 1030. The fare range is about 1100 to 1800 baht, 2nd and 1st class respectively.

As far as getting a water taxi. You are not far from the klong, about a block away from your hotel in the opposite direction of Ploenchit Rd. Once there I do not know where the access point is located so you may have to inquire at your hotel, if they even know. You can also get there by taxi of course or easier and faster would be the MRT, which won't get you all the way there but almost. I don't know of any web site that gives you info on water taxis in Bangkok but maybe another Vt'er will know and reply back.
Good luck and have FUN!
