Explore Bangkok by BTS: Bang Chak (E10)

BTS is Bangkok elevated rapid transit system, which is known as Skytrain. With BTS, you can go to the major areas in Bangkok without facing traffic jams. Currently BTS has 2 main lines: Sukhumvit line and Silom line.

Bang Chak is a BTS station on Sukhumvit line that is located near Sukhumvit Soi 93, on Sukhumvit Road.

Here is the map for the area around Bang Chak BTS Station. I have got this map from BTS official website. The area map for the other BTS stations can be found here. To enlarge, click at the map.

What to see around BTS Bang Chak Station

Let’s look at the map.

You will see that there is nothing much to see in this area. It was a residential area for middle class people, but recently I have seen more and more condominiums in this area.

People who live in this area usually go to Bangchak Market to buy ready-to-eat food. If you want to see how local market looks like, you can visit this market. It takes just only few steps from the station. Not so many tourists visit this market.

If you are a silk lover, visit Jim Thompson Outlet. It is just only 15-minute walk from the station.

Hope this information helps. Enjoy traveling Bangkok!
