How do I get to Silom Road to Study IELTS by BTS?
Getting to Silom Road is easy. If you are near public transport in your home area. Sala Deng BTS station is just a stone throw away from Insight English. The BTS is otherwise known as the Sky Train due its convenient concrete pylons that raise the track about 20 meters above the roads below.
Those that do travel by the BTS get a different perspective of Bangkok from above rather than being in the middle of hustle and bustle of the roads and crowds below. However, be warned because rush hour on the BTS can become a bit of a bun fight at times!
If I want to study an IELTS course in Silom Road, can I take the MRT?
What’s great about modern day Bangkok is the fact that you are spoilt for choice when it comes to public transport coming into the CBD. The MRT is one of the quickest and most convenient routes into Silom. You’ll need to get off at Silom Road MRT station, which is by and large connected to the BRT station via a sky walk.
What is the Sky Walk?
The Sky Walk is a raised walking platform that is around 150 meters length. You don’t need to walk on the roads when you first arrive at Silom Road MRT. Instead, all you need to do is walk a bit along the sky walk and once you arrive at the BTS you will need to walk down the steps to the left.
Bear in mind there are two sets of steps. The steps you need to find Insight English will directly in front of you on the left. So you should in fact still be heading in the same direction as you are walking from MRT.
How do I find my IELTS course centre with Insight English?
If you are coming by MRT then use the aforementioned sky walk. Once you arrive at the BTS and walk down the steps you will need to just keep on walking straight for about 150 meters until you see some steps and a McDonalds. This is the building you will find Insight English and the IELTS testing centre.
