Where you book your stay when you visit Bangkok is a determining factor on how quickly and easily you’ll be able to get around the city. Booking a Siam Stadium hostel puts you right in the heart of the city and right near the BTS Skytrain as well.
Bangkok is a vast, complicated city full of alleys, one-way streets and cul-de-sacs. The Siam Stadium serves as an easy landmark that every taxi driver knows. But booking your stay in Bangkok at a Siam Stadium hostel also means that you have the option of not having to use taxis at all during your stay.
The BTS Skytrain has a Siam Stadium Station that provides a much quicker and more efficient way of getting around Bangkok than braving the city’s notoriously congested traffic.
Faster Way to Access the Attractions of Bangkok
The BTS Skytrain is interconnected with the other two rapid transit systems of Bangkok, the Airport Rail Link and the MRT. If you’re flying into Suvarnabhumi Airport, you can take the Airport Rail Link into the city, transfer to the BTS, and take the BTS direct to your Siam Stadium hostel without ever having to spend a minute in the traffic of Bangkok.
To reach all the historical sights along the river, simply take the BTS to the Saphan Taksin Station on the BTS’s Silom line and walk down the stairs. You’ll find yourself at Sathorn Pier where you can buy an all-day tourist’s pass that allows you to hop on and off the water taxis wherever you like.
You are free to see all the sights along the river including the Grand Palace, Wat Pho and the Temple of the Dawn.
Reaching Chatuchak Park and the world-famous Chatuchak Weekend Market is easy as well. Simply take the BTS to the Mo Chit station at the end of the Sukhumvit line, and you’re at the entrance to Chatuchak Park.
Between the BTS, MRT and Airport Rail Link, you can access all the most important areas of the city both from a historical perspective and from a fun point of view.
Spend a night clubbing at the hotspots along Ekkamai Road, or spend a morning browsing among the ancient shops of Chinatown and exploring the historic Rattanakosin Island area. Take a cruise down the river to Asiatique and take in a Thai puppet show before dining on a riverside meal of fresh seafood.
By using the public transit systems around your Siam Stadium hostel, you’ll not only be able to access all the attractions on your list quickly and easily, but you’ll save money as well. You won’t be sitting in stalled traffic watching your taxi meter tick your precious travel money away.
Instead, you’ll be able to get across town to see the attractions you want to see and still have time in your day for shopping, eating and exploring. And, after all, isn’t this the way traveling is supposed to be?
