Asia Going...Gone!

Going Around Bangkok

On any given day in Bangkok, taking the BTS or sky train is one of the most convenient ways to go around the city. By taking the sky train, you escape Bangkok traffic which saves you time and I must say, frees you from the usual stress of explaining to taxi drivers where you are going (because if you are not a Thai national, that would mean there is a language gap that has to be crossed). Before you get on a sky train, there is a location map for you to refer to at the station. When you have checked the map and the corresponding fares, you are now ready to drop your fare (in coins) at the appropriate slot and voila, you now have your precious ticket to ride 🙂
The BTS or sky train stations are in key locations in the city. If you take a Bangkok map, you can easily spot the places where you might be interested to visit. You can then check the nearest sky train or BTS station for you to get on and get off. You can then walk a short distance or take a cab, if this is really necessary. You don’t have a lot to explain this time since the distance is short enough and you don’t have to feel that maybe you’ re lost. As taking the sky train shortens your travel time, this also means more time for you to enjoy the City of Angels 🙂

Are you ready for your ride?

 
You need your ticket to go in & proceed to the waiting area or to go out from the station
