Book your hotel in Bangkok near the BTS for greater convenience
If you’re visiting Bangkok for the first time, the best way to make life easier on yourself while you’re in town is to book a hotel in Bangkok near the BTS Skytrain.
The Skytrain is one of three rapid transit rail systems in Bangkok that are interconnected with each other. Together, they cover most of the city and can get you to pretty much every tourist destination in Bangkok. If you’re in town on business, the BTS Skytrain and the MRT both serve the major business areas of the city.
Other public transportation services in the city also tie into these rapid transit systems, making them the hub of public transport in Bangkok.

These water taxis offer a one-day unlimited ticket to tourists that allow visitors to the city to hop on and off the water taxis at any of the stops along the river.
You can take the BTS to the Saphan Taksin Station on the Silom Line, and walk down the stairs to Sathorn Pier where you can buy your ticket for the water taxis and visit the Grand Palace, Wat Pho and the Temple of the Dawn that are all on the banks of the Chao Phraya River.
