Skytrain to Orchid Sheraton on River

by darlaf

Glad to hear that Skytrain from airport up and running-how would I get from airport all the way to Orchid Sheraton (on river)-I'm trying to take taxi for as short as distance as possible-my kids get car sick....Thanks, Darla

Ready for an adventure?

Presuming you will be arriving to get to the hotel before midnight,....

... take the Airport Rail Link City Line to "PHAYATHAI". Transfer to the BTS skytrain, purchasing fares to "SAPHAN TAKSIN". You will need to transfer trains at "SIAM". At "SIAM", transfer to the train heading to "WONGWIAN YAI".

From "SAPHAN TAKSIN", depending on the time, you can catch a river shuttle to Royal Orchid, or take a short taxi ride.

The BTS shuts down at midnight. If you arrive after midnight, you'll be stuck taking the SRT to downtown (either city line or express line) then taxi from Makkasan or Phayathai.

Spot on Curt,great directions but they probably carry a lot of lugguage with their kids in tow. I would take the airport train and after just take a taxi from the station to Orchis Sheration. Cheers Tommy x

Thanks for the replies-how far of taxi from station to Sheraton? We are coming in around 2PM-does Skytrain have place for luggage? Thanks again-Darla

Re: Skytrain to Orchid Sheraton on River

should be ten to fifteen minutes without traffic. The new airport shuttle train should have space for lugguage. At the station you catch the cab after you are in Bangkok city. Cheers Tommy x

Just to add to the previous posts, in case you don't know, Darla.

Royal Orchid has a free shuttle ferry from SAPHAN TAKSIN to their property. They've got a private jetty by the river.

Enjoy Royal Orchid... and Bangkok :)

The rail link from the airport has room set aside for luggage, but the BTS does not (in the event that you do decide to transfer from the airport rail link to the BTS). Personally, with the poor ticketing and turnstile arrangement at the BTS stations, I would not want to attempt to travel the BTS (Skytrain) with much luggage, much less with small kids, particularly since you'll have to change BTS trains at Siam Station.

I'm not certain what the rail link's fare situation is for children, but you should be aware that if 2 or more persons will be paying the rail link fare (I believe it is B100 or B150 per person on the express) and will be hopping into a taxi for the final few kilometers to the hotel (~B80-B100) or will be taking the BTS to Saphan Taksin station (B35/person) and then climbing aboard the hotel's small boat with luggage and kids, then it may well be cheaper to take a taxi all the way from airport to hotel (yes, I understand that this might not be suitable for your kids, but the convenience is substantially greater than the other alternatives).

Enjoy your stay.

Travel Tips for Bangkok

Airport Tax

by chiabh

The airport departure tax is 500 baht... Unlike other airports, this is not included in your air-ticket... So make sure that you have the necessary money when you leave Thailand thru the airport...

Only Thai baht is accepted... If you do not have the Thai currency, you can change at the many airport money changers...

You can purchase the airport departure tax at the booth next to the the entrance to the restricted departure hall... or at the automated machine for the purposed...

Bangkok Tip

by Billy_26

Fruitshakes
That first sip when the cold icy shake falls down the back of your throat, your whole body starts to tingle as the coolness takes away the heat of the day. Even better is that no guilt is attached as the cost is small and you don't feel bad the next morning. You feel re-juvinated. ahhhh don't you want to go over to the blender and make one now :)

River Cruise - Holy Rosary Church

by Audrey118

The Holy Rosary Church was restored recently is the third Catholic church built in Bangkok. This Gothic-style church was constructed in 1787 by Portuguese Catholics who moved from another Roman Catholic church, Santa Cruz, on Thonburi side after the destruction of Ayutthaya by Burmese invaders.

Thai etiquette

by trisanna

While in Thailand or bangok, you should respect the way other Thais treat each other. Here are a few Thai etiquette tips
- respect religon
-respect the King and the royal family. Never say anything that could be construed as criticial about them.
-the government plays the Thai anthem on every day at 8 am and 6pm. Before all sporting events and movies the anthem is heard. Please stand up for this.
-Please dress respectively
-never point toes at a Buddha image
-women should not approach or talk to monks, unless stated somewhere (like monk chat or they come to you)
-Don't touch anyone's head
-Don't pass things with your left hand
-Always keep cool and never loose your temper. You and the person you are talking to will loose face. Losing face is a major issue in Asia. It's very disrespectual.
-Don't wear shoes in a long Thai's houe or in a bot (at a wat).
