    One Day Pass

    BTSのワンデイパス(140バーツ)

    You can purchase One Day Pass at the ticket window.

    BTSの改札横の窓口(ワンデイパスの購入場所)

    The cost 140 Baht could be more expensive than your 1-day ticket cost but you can save your time because you don’t need to queue the ticket window.

    I recommend this 1 day pass for the traveler who stays in Bangkok for 1 day or 2 days.

    If you will stay more periods, I recommend Rabbit Card.

    Rabbit Card

    f:id:saku_bangkok:20180901154709j:plain

    Rabbit card is rechargeable IC card. You don’t need to purchase on every ride by this card.

    At least 200 Baht is charged when you purchase Rabbit Card. The detail is

    • The card issuing fee:100 Baht
    • Initial charge amount: From 100 Baht (100 Baht each)

    You can purchase and top up Rabbit Card at ticket counter besides the ticket gate.

    POINT

    From 15th February 2019, you need to register passport information when you purchase Rabbit Card. Please bring your passport when you purchase Rabbit Card.

    Return Rabbit Card and Refund

    You can return Rabbit Card and get a refund at the ticket counter.

    改札脇の窓口

    You can get refund the balance of the card but you can’t get refund Card Issuing Fee (100 Baht).

    Rabbit Card is valid for 5 years, so you can keep the card if you travel to Bangkok frequently.

    By the way, you are able to link your Rabbit Card with Rabbit LINE Pay. The article below explains how to link. It will make the card more smooth and convenient.

    Siam station is the other station which has a different layout, because the Sukhumvit Line and Silom Line are connected at this station.
