Walking Tips (9)

Pedestrian Friendly Area

Bangkok is a pedestrian friendly area, specially on the main shopping districts as they have many elevated pedestrian walkways (that are covered) and a long sky walk at Ratchprasong Shopping area from Chidlom to Siam Station plus the pedestrian at ground walkways are large. due to the notorious bangkok traffic, if you want to go on short distances to shop around or walk or eat, then walking around is the best way to do and it sure burns the calories away when eating the wonderful thai food and street foods that you may eat along the way.

BTS Sky Walk from Chidlom to Siam Station

there are many elevated pedestrian walkways in bangkok as the city is pedestrian friendly. what takes my fancy is that also have a very long elevated walkway that runs parallel to the BTS Sky Train at Sukhumvit Road that starts at BTS Chidlom Station up to Siam Station. (the walkway is just below the skytrain tracks and it has many entrances and exits and runs for more than 1 kilometer up to Siam Station and the best deal here is that there are no vendors and beggars around the walkway. among the areas easily accesible from the Sky Walk are: Central Department store, Amarin Plaza, Gaysorn Plaza, Erawan Shopping, Central World, Siam Paragon, Siam Discovery, Siam Center, and Siam Square. then you can walk for 500 meters at the ground section to MBK!

walking aorund bangkok

getting into bangkok for us was by a scheduled pick up at the airport, although we heard of a japanese couple who were charged 3000baht + 150baht toll gate charge to travel to bangkok city centre, they went to the japanese consulate to compalin & they manged to cctv footage of the taxi etc & got their money back
the average cost 6miles by tuk tuk is no more than 60baht, we went to tour at madame tussards where our tour organisers had transport for us, after we walked back to the hotel, as the sky train was just out side the venue, mbk was across the road siam centre just around the corner, pratunam shopping mall just 15minutes away & a massive food mall which caters for all taste, great fish & chips mate, all in all the trek takes around 30minutes to walk back to hotel but a couple of hours since we shopped all the way back to our hotel roughly 2.5kilometre wounderful heaps of food on way, fruit etc,
say no to tuk tuks & make sure that the taxi has the meter on, no meter on they will make up a price etc

Bangkok Pedestrian Traffic Crossing Light

Near the famous Soi Cowboy night club street is one of the busiest intersections in Bangkok. If you mistime the lights at this intersection you could flattened by the wave of speeding motorcycles.

To help you make it across there is the standard red pedestrian traffic light for when your waiting, which turns into the green walking man for when it's safe to cross.

However when your crossing time is almost finished the green walking man turns into green running man to let you know to pick up the pace and get to the safety of the sidewalk.

Bangkok is a huge, sprawling city. When you look at a map, you have no concept of the vast distances between major tourist areas. It would be very difficult to do a lot of walking in Bangkok.

However, walking within the neighborhoods (such as along Sukumvit) is very convenient. There are plenty of cross walks and pedestrian overpasses, and there are sidewalks in most places.

Walking - the best excercise!

Wonder why Thai people are so skinny?!

They walk a lot, in fact with all the bridge and staircases ard, as compared to Singapore!
Singaporean are so much fortunate!

I walk and walk........and continue to walk..........

Overhead Bridge

The traffic condition is bad... There is no fix direction for the traffic flow. The flow changes depending on the traffic condition. There are signages to show the flow of traffic. To save time, please just use the over head bridges. There's plenty around. The air is also better up there... Much better!
Taking the MTR is also not a bad idea... But it's super crowded during peak hours... and there's no escalators to the platforms... Use the stairs!

after the skytrain, now the skywalk

Good news, there is now a special protected suspended "bridge" or path for walking people.
This great idea (and path) is linking Chitlom station to Siam station.
The skywalk is open from 06.30 till 24.00 and is totally free.
Walk safe in the shopping area !!!!
