Getting around Bangkok

The Bangkok Skytrain (BTS) and the Bangkok Subway (MRT) are the two most convenient ways to travel around Bangkok. 

The BTS and MRT are independent transport networks, so you need to buy separate tickets if you change between them. However, you can change from the BTS to MRT at intersection stations; simply exit one station and walk into the other station. 

Intersection stations are: Asoke BTS / Sukhumvit MRT, Sala Daeng BTS / Silom MRT, Mo Chit BTS / Chatuchak MRT and Ha Yaek Lat Phrao BTS / Phahayolthin MRT.

Get out at BTS Bangna Station and take the covered skywalk to access the BITEC Congress Center.
