Explore Bangkok by BTS: Nana (E3)

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.

Nana Station is a BTS station on Sukhumvit line that is located on Sukhumvit Road at Sukhumvit, Nana Intersection, Watthana District.

Here is the map for the area around Nana 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 Nana Station

Let’s look at the map.

Nana BTS Station is located in the area we call ‘lower Sukhumvit’. From the station, you can walk to Sukhumvit Soi 3-Soi 11.  This is one of the popular tourist areas in Bangkok. You will see that the area is full with hotels. You can expect to find three, four, and also five star hotels in this area.

The best time to explore this area is at night. Nana does not have a very huge shopping mall like other BTS stations on Sukhumvit line, but it offers you nightlife in Bangkok. Many tourists choose to stay at Nana because there are several pubs and bars in this area and they can take BTS Skytrain to other areas in Bangkok.

Sukhumvit Soi 11 is well-known for trendy pubs and bars. From the station, you can walk to Nana Plaza, one of the red light district areas in Bangkok, which is located at Sukhumvit Soi 4.

This area also has a big night market. At night, the road is full with stalls selling cheap clothing, accessories, souvenirs, and so on. Well, be careful of fake goods. Most of the products with international brands such as watches, t-shirts, and handbags over there are the fake ones.

Hope this information helps. Enjoy traveling Bangkok!
