Four new MRT subway stations have just opened in Bangkok’s Old City and Chinatown neighbourhood, which will make exploring the area’s rich history and landmark sites that much easier.

The stations are part of a 14-km extension to the MRT Blue Line, which involves 11 new stations in total. These are the Wat Mangkon, Sam Yot, Sanam Chai and Itsaraphap Stations, which are located in this order after Hua Lamphong Station, which is main historic railway station from where the new line begins.

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

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