Shangri-La Hotel Bangkok is centrally located in the Bang Rak district and easily accessible via the BTS/MRT network of trains. Being situated along the banks of Chao Phraya River, another traffic-free option to explore the city is through the water taxi.

  • Airport Transfer - Shangri-La Hotel, Bangkok is located about 34 kilometers from Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK) and 28 kilometers from Don Muaeng International Airport (DMK). A comfortable and affordable way to reach the hotel from the airports is by booking a Grab Car or Uber from your smart phone. Fare ranges from THB400 to THB450 (US$12-14) which already includes toll. A more convenient alternative is to book the hotel's limo service at THB3,000 (US$92.00) per way, prior to your arrival.
  • Getting Around - the most recommended way to go around the city is by taking a Grab Car via the Grab Car mobile application. Even the locals prefer this than taking a taxi because it is reliable and service is much better. Just make sure you have mobile data then you are good to go. If you don't have mobile data, then your next best choice is the regular taxi. Make sure (insist in some cases) that the driver uses the taxi meter. Don't agree on a fixed price. If you are looking for more adventure, you can try the BTS Skytrain and the MRT Underground. The nearest station to the hotel is the Saphan Taksin BTS Station.

  • Attractions - Whether you are looking for natural or cultural wonders in Bangkok, you don't really need to travel far. Chao Phraya River is an attraction on its own. Dining at the hotel's Salathip restaurant, you can witness performances of Thai classical dances. Other popular attractions of Bangkok such as The Grand Palace, Wat Pho and Wat Suthat are easily reachable by river taxi.
  • Shopping - If you are looking for great bargains, you can check-out Silom Night Market and Chatuchak Night Market. Always try to haggle as you can buy most items for up to 50% of the original price.
