Lak Si; A Chapter of New Developments To the Extended Horizons of Bangkok

Lak Si is connected via MRT Red Line, Pink Line and Green Line that will directly lead it to BTS Siam station. In few years, Airport Link from Don Mueang Airport to Suvarnabhumi Airport will be completed, providing the most convenient connectivity for external and internal of the country.
