Adventure Through Little Pieces of Bangkok With Four New Spectacularly Decorated MRT Stations


The Tourism Authority of Thailand welcomes the opening of four new MRT subway stations in Bangkok’s Old City and Chinatown neighbourhood. 

Having first opened in 2004, the Metropolitan Rapid Transit or MRT is a system covering most of the Bangkok Metropolitan Region in Thailand. The line is made up of two sections: the MRT Blue Line between Hua Lamphong and Bang Sue and the MRT Purple Line that opened in 2016 which connected Tao Poon with Khlong Bang Phai in Nonthaburi.

This year, the MRT has extended the Blue Line which will make exploring Bangkok’s rich history and landmark attractions that much simpler. This extension spans 14 kilometres, which includes four stations, making the MRT Blue Line grow to 11 stations. These new stations are the Wat Mangkon, Sam Yot, Sanam Chai and Itsaraphap Stations, which are located in this order after Hua Lamphong Station from where the extension begins.

TAT Governor Mr. Yuthasak Supasorn applauds the extension initiative, saying: “The opening of these new stations greatly increases the ease and convenience of visiting some of Bangkok’s most famous attractions, and the TAT is thrilled.”

The four new stations are decorated to celebrate and honour the traditions and heritage of Bangkok’s old town, also known as the Rattanakosin area. This area is home to many of Bangkok’s most spectacular and revered attractions, such as the Grand Palace, Wat Phra Kaeo (Temple of the Emerald Buddha), Wat Pho (Temple of the Reclining Buddha), and bustling Chinatown.

Each station is built and decorated so spectacularly that they are tourist attractions in themselves: Wat Mangkon Station features a striking décor of red and gold and a dragon-inspired staircase; Sam Yot Station takes on a museum-type feel that includes old photographs on display, reflecting its historical surroundings; Sanam Chai Station boasts elegant decoration that invokes a Rattanakosin-era state room in reflection of its nearby royal heritage; Itsaraphap Station’s decorations features a swan theme, paying tribute to nearby Wat Hongrattanaram. 

These four new stations will start running from the 28th of September 2019 from 10am to 4pm. To learn more about Bangkok’s Metropolitan MRT, visit www.transitbangkok.com.
