Grand Hyatt Erawan – Local Transport

  • Walking: The hotel is located in the city’s prime shopping area. Erawan mall is under the hotel, CentralWorld is right opposite, and several others like Siam Paragon, MBK, Central Chitlom, Platinum, and Pantip Plaza are all less than 10 minutes’ walk away.
  • Metro and Bus: The nearest BTS (sky train) station, Chitlom is connected to the hotel via a skywalk through the mall. There are several bus stops around 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.
