Bangkok Bus Station


Transport Co and Lignite bus services terminate at Sai Tai Mai, Bangkok’s Southern Bus Terminal. It is located on the other side of the river to main areas where visitors to the City mostly stay. Sai Tai Mai is not within easy walking distance of a metro or elevated railway station. Your options are:

  • Take a bus (slow and difficult to work out).
  • Take a taxi all the way to your final destination in Bangkok.

  • Travel Tip: If you are going to the Khao San Road area you are better off simply taking a taxi the whole way; the BTS system does not currently have a station close to the Khao San Road.
