  • Flight - Suvarnabhumi Airport and Don Muang Airport, which are respectively located around 30 and 25 kilometers from the city center, are Bangkok's two main airports. The Suvarnabhumi Airport, which serves numerous local and international flights each day, is one of the busiest in Southeast Asia. The city is serviced by several direct flights from nearly all Asian and European nations. Bangkok, which has two international airports, is easily accessible from India by a number of direct flights. High frequency flights are operated by airlines like Air India, Air India Express, AirAsia, Jet Airways, Thai Airlines, and IndiGo from several Indian cities like Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Ahmadabad, etc.
  • Road - Taxis are freely accessible throughout Bangkok and can transport you to any of the nearby cities. Although the city's taxis are metered, make sure to confirm the fare before beginning the journey. But, taking a car to Bangkok is not a practical plan because one will waste a lot of time in traffic. The city is connected to the rest of the nation by three important highways: Phahonyothin Road, Sukhumvit Road, and Phetkasem Road.
  • Rail - Chinatown is close to Hualamphong, the main train station in Bangkok. The station is easily accessible via the subway, which also connects Bangkok to every other place in the nation via its efficient train network.


  • Taxi - Suvarnabhumi International Airport is the closest airport to Wat Phra Kaew, and it will take around 25 minutes to get there. You may get to Wat Phra Kaew in the shortest amount of time and money by using this route, which will only cost you 40 Baht.
  • Train - You can also travel to the temple by Skytrain, getting out at Saphan Taksin station, and then taking a taxi or bus.
  • Water Taxi - Another enjoyable way to travel to the temple is by water taxi. Take a boat upriver to Tha Chang's pier. Then, it takes 5 minutes to walk from the pier to the temple complex.
