Explore Bangkok by BTS: Sala Daeng (S2)

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.

Sala Daeng is a BTS station on Silom line that is located on Silom Road, near Sala Daeng Intersection.

Here is the map for the area around Sala Daeng 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 Sala Daeng Station

Let’s look at the map.

Silom area is one of the main business areas in Bangkok. The area is full with office buildings. From the map, you will see that Silom is an interchange station. It connects with MRT Subway at ‘Silom Station’. So, you can change from BTS to MRT or vice versa here. Some tourist chooses to stay around this station because it is an interchange station and this station is also close to Saphan Taksin Station, a BTS station that connects with Chao Phraya Express Boat.

From the station, there is a skybridge connecting you to Silom Complex, a shopping mall offers you a wide range of restaurants.

Lalai Sap Market, a famous market among office workers, is only 5-minute walk from the station. At this market, you would find stalls selling local foods and fashion clothing.
