Anantara Siam – Local Transport

  • Walking: The hotel is located on Ratchadamri road, with a great selection of malls, restaurants, bars, cafés, and shops within walking distance.
  • Metro and Bus: The nearest sky train station is Ratchadamri, just steps from the hotel entrance. There are bus stops on the main road on both sides of the hotel. It’s easy to take a bus in Bangkok if you know the route and stop, but the conductors and drivers don’t speak English.
  • Taxis: Metered taxis are available in plenty, and the hotel staff will easily call one; or use the Grab taxi app. Tuk tuks also dot the street right outside the hotel, but they do not have meters, so bargain hard. Motorcycle taxis are available at every corner, but again, bargain hard.
