The #53 Line is a Great Route for a Frugal Photographer

The #53 Line is a Great Route for a Frugal Photographer. It does a circle through the main parts of Rattanskosin Island and connects with the Subway at Hua Lamphong.

If you get one with the blue sign it is free. Otherwise you pay 7B. That’s about 20ยข US.

It operates in both directions – the 53L and 53R.

Most Bangkok red buses have a painted sign on the side near the doors showing the route. The 53 is unusual that one of the signs is in English.

Do you know other good routes?
