Can anyone give us a approx price for taxi from Pathumwan Princess Hotel to Chatuchak market.
I would guess you might be looking at 100 baht plus. The driver will want to take the expressway, so that would set you back another 45 baht.
The BTS skytrain will cost 35 baht and take less than a third the time.
Around 150 baht, but its faster and cheaper to use the BTS from beside your hotel and get off at Morchit.
Take BTS man, you could waste 2 hours in the traffic. Its always super busy on that road esp.on weekends.
Just a suggestion from 3 who live here ...
...and one from someone who does not live there but visits regularly and who has experienced that standstill situation when caught in Bkk traffic...take the BTS.
And start early - around 8 am, so that you can avoid the sun and relatively more crowd in the train.
Thanks eveyone for your help. Looks as though BTS is a better way although we have never been on it before in our previous 5 visits to Bangkok. Can you please advise approx how long it would take on BTS and is it better to go on a Sunday as we dont arrive into Bangkok from New Zealand until 9pm Friday night.
You can catch the train at National Stadium BTS which is connected to MBK with is connected to the PP. After one stop you will need to change train at Siam. Tke the train that is heading towards Mo Chit.
You can walk along the skywalk from MBK/Tokyu thru Siam Discovery, Siam Centre and Paragon emerging at Siam BTS. From there just take the train heading towards Mo Chit.
Here's the BTS Map: bts.co.th/customer/en/images/master_routemap…
You can pick up a paper version once at the station.
