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.


  • BTS - Take the BTS Skytrain to Saphan Taksin Station first, then walk a short distance to Wat Arun. Afterward, proceed to Exit 2 of the station.
  • Ferry - Take the Chao Phraya Express Boat (15 Baht) from there to Tha Tien Pier. then take the 4 Baht cross-river ferry to the temple.
  • Taxi - Metered taxis are a convenient, effective, and comfortable way to travel around Bangkok. Use just the metered cabs, please. You are being conned if the driver refuses to use the meter. Use taxi-sharing applications like Grab as well.
  • Motorbikes - Bangkok's fastest, albeit less secure, means of transportation is the motorbike taxi. One is simple to locate in populated regions. They typically cost between 60 and 90 THB.
  • Local Bus - The most difficult and least expensive mode of transportation in Bangkok is via bus. Several routes exist, although they are all exclusively labelled in Thai. Also packed and frequently without air conditioning are buses. But in certain places, there isn't any other choice.
