MRT Sukhumvit Station (SUK)
Exploring Bangkok on foot is a real challenge. The winding streets and alleyways can leave even a seasoned traveller scratching their head and walking around in circles. Taxi drivers can also leave you frustrated, driving a hard bargain at times. There is an alternative to these problems though, Bangkok's MRT.
The MRT system opened its doors in 2004 and has been a great success, growing to 18 underground stations at present. The system is relatively easy to navigate and actually works out a lot quicker if you need to travel a considerable distance. Getting from one side of the city to the other during rush hour is virtually impossible above ground but the same distance can be completed without a sweat underground and gives you a truly local experience.
Sukhumvit Station is in the centre of a lively tourist area with plenty to do. Entertainment and shopping centres are located here as well as a wide range of restaurants and bars.
Tickets can be booked in advance (you will receive a discount if this is the case), or simply find a ticket counter in any of the stations if you wish to travel on the same or next day.
