Getting In

By Public Transit
Siam Square can be reached by both the Sukhumvit (light green) Line and Silom (dark green) Line on the Skytrain. The most convenient entry point is at Siam Station at the Siam Center shopping mall and situated in the middle of the Siam Square area. Siam Station acts as the interchange station between both lines, so expect a lot of commuters during rush hour.
The Sukhumvit Line and the Silom Line provide direct connections with the districts of the same name.

Save on your hotel -
  • Sukhumvit Line - The line continues east and passes Chit Lom Station, which is close to Ratchaprasong and Phloen Chit (serves the road of the same name). There is also a direct connection with Phahonyothin and the Chatuchak Weekend Market if you take the Sukhimvit Line to the north. 
  • Silom Line - One stop west of Siam Station is the National Stadium, MBK Center, Jim Thompson's House and the cheap guest houses at Soi Kasemsan 1. If coming from Rattanakosin or Khao San Road, take the Chao Phraya Express Boat to Sathorn pier. From there, continue your way along the Silom Line to Siam Station.

By Boat
If staying at Khao San Road, the best option is to take the Saen Saep Express Boat to get to Siam Square. It is a short walk to the Golden Mount in Rattanakosin, where you can board the boat, which operates daily from 5:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. The Golden Mount Line brings you to Sapan Hua Chang Pier for Siam Square and terminates at Pratunam Pier.

By Bus
Siam Square is one of the most congested districts of Bangkok and with the complexity of the city's public bus system, you're better off using other means of transport. However, if coming from or going to the Grand Palace area in Rattanakosin, the bus is the only direct connection with Siam Square. 
  • Bus No. 15 starts at Phra Athit Road and then passes Ratchadamnoen Klang Road (for Khao San Road), Lan Luang Road, Chakkaphatdi Phong Road, Bamrung Muang Road and then getting off at the intersection of the MBK Center, Siam Square and Ratchaprasong before the bus continues to Silom Road.
  • Bus No. 47 starts at Rama IV Road in Khlong Toei and then heads to Silom, through Phaya Thai Road and then getting off at MBK Center. You can also board at Tha Chang in Rattanakosin (near the Grand Palace), which then passes Ratchadamnoen Klang Road (for Khao San Road), Lan Luang Road, Chakkaphatdi Phong Road, Bamrung Muang Road and then MBK Center.
