How to get to Sai Tai Mai

South bus terminal is located far from the center of the city in the Thonburi district on the street Boromratchchonnani Rd (Sai Tai Mai on a map of Bangkok). Metro next to him no, get out of the city by taxi or bus.

The taxi ride from the centre depending on the area will cost 200-350 baht (from 422.79 RUB, see the currency of Thailand and the exchange rate). The closest Khao San road, then – Sukhumvit.

Much more economical and can be reached by city bus, the trip can cost from 10 baht. Some areas will have to change. To plan a route by bus to the terminal from the desired location, you can use the route planner on google map, but keep in mind that there information is sometimes presented out of date, so double check the routes on the official website of the city buses of Bangkok - The bus stop is right at the entrance to the terminal, and the bus rolled in here off the highway to drop off or pick up passengers. But maybe some of them stop only at stops on the highway, check on the place.

That's convenient routes (as of 2019):

  • No. 35. Goes through the Chinatown, railway station Hua Lamphong, the Democracy Monument (district Khao San road).

Good day!

From what station to sit (Purely to see the city) and how to get it from our hotel?
Thank you! ...

Marina, take a boat ride and reach the Temple of dawn - all the same different things.
If you just want to Church to get, you need to get to the pier and take a ferry. And if you want it on the boat ride, I understand you just interested in a regular boat and not a cruise, it is another. But IMHO, ride the Shuttle boat - a dubious pleasure, especially during rush hour. It is still a vehicle, do not think that you are there to see. In principle, about how to get there here we have written in detail -
But, nevertheless, here's the layout:
If you just ferry to cross, then I would chose the option to fully get across the water, but will have a little walk, but the city view, if you have not seen. Actually for me I Bangkok love that only would do so, I mean, more walk walked. In short, from the hotel along the Mall, Indra Square exit on the main street of Ratchaprarop and turn left. Walk to the canal pier to Pratunam. There on the boat get to the end of Phan Fa, is near temple of the Golden mount. And from there on foot through the whole district to the pier, Tha Tien, from where we ferried to the other side. We heard that Tha Tien like closed for renovations, but there is so nearby pier ferries run, on the spot will understand. Of course to go far, but a lot of things along the way will see, there is after all the most interesting places, maybe some temples along the way to visit.
When we did not want to walk a lot, then you can take the subway to the Marina to get with transfers. First on the airport metro two stops to Makkasan, and there on the subway and transfer to Sanam Chai. Sanam Chai is a new station according to the map, I'm there ...

If Suvarnabhumi, then most likely sit in the airport on the metro ARL to the end, and there ride the BTS to Siam station. It's faster than a taxi to go. ...
