The BTS Krung Thonburi station is a BTS skytrain station located on the Silom Line in the Khlong San District of Bangkok. This BTS station is located on the Krung Thon Buri Road. The area is a low key area with residences and small mom and pop shops and smaller office towers compared to the rest of Bangkok. The station is the first station which crosses the Chao Phraya River and meets with the BTS Saphan Taksin Station on the other side.
If you take a short taxi ride then from the station then you will have access to many high-end hotels located a short ride away or use the BTS system to find an even larger selection of restaurants and hotels in the area. This is a very laid back part of Bangkok without the rat race feeling to it.
