    Thong Lo BTS station

    by blueskyjohn Updated Jul 30, 2015

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Thong Lo, also referred to as Thong Lor is on the Sukhumvit Line of the BTS sky train system. The stop is at Sukhumvit Road and Soi Thong Lo. Thong Lo is located in the Klong Toei District. The area here is popular with locals and there are a number of night clubs and popular restaurants. I've been to this area for the restaurants.

    The restaurants I've been to from this BTS station include:

    The Gardens Restaurant
    Supanniga Eating Room
    The Root Cafe

    BTS Skytrain

    by antistar Written Mar 17, 2015

    For most people this is the main city transport system, and it links most of the popular tourist destinations. The Skytrain runs high above the streets, and you must climb several floors to reach the track - if you are lucky there might be a escalator, but don't count on it. The ticket system is confusing, and requires that you only use 5 and 10 baht coins. If you haven't got the change (and who has?) there are usually machines to make the change, or you can ask at the BTS counter. Then you need to enter the number of the station you want to reach and put your coins in the slot. Alternatively buy a day ticket and avoid the hassle of individual tickets.

    Note: This isn't the same ticket system as the subway.

    The ideal way to get around Bangkok is to use the Skytrain or Subway as the trains are regular, quick and inexpensive but study the maps first and figure out the most convenient way to reach each destination. The trains and stations are extremely clean, and there are a variety of tickets, passes that you can buy, just look at the link below. There is one subway line, two skytrain lines and a branch that takes you to Suvarnabhumi Airport.
    By looking at the link below you will see that there is a list of stations along with what attractions are in the surrounding area, so start planning now.

    Taking BTS vs Taxi for a group of 3 or more

    by Jimbo222 Written Sep 12, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There were 3 of us staying in Bangkok around Sukhumvit road near On Nut BTS. What we found out is that cabs in Bangkok are relatively cheaper compared to Manila. Moreover for a group of 3 or more it's actually cheaper to take a cab than taking the train.

    The tip though is that there's a language barrier between customer and driver so make sure to have a local write down the location and the instructions to going there.

    We had experienced 2-3x mishaps wherein the driver brought us to the destination we didnt intend to due to driver misunderstanding the written instruction.

    The good part of taking the BTS is you avoid the communication part as they have machines in English to buy the card.

    Sky Train or BTS is a convenient way to get around Bangkok. The link below is directly to the English site. It appears the best deal for us would be to purchase a 1-day pass for 120 baht (US$3.60) for unlimited number of trips for that day.
