Siam Station (Thai: สถานีสยาม) is the cross-platform interchange station for the BTS Skytrain in Pathum Wan district, Bangkok, Thailand. The largest and busiest station on the BTS with 40,000 - 50,000 passengers per day, it is where passengers on the Sukhumvit Line and Silom Line Lines change trains.
Siam station is unique in the way that it is the only BTS station utilizing an island platform to facilitate transfer between lines, while all of the other stations are built with side platforms. The upper level allows transfer between trains heading to Mo Chit and the National Stadium. The lower interchange level allows transfers between trains heading to Wongwian Yai and On Nut.
The station is located on Rama I Road to the west of Pathum Wan intersection in the heart of Siam District. The station is linked by skybridges to the Siam Paragon and Siam Center shopping malls. It is also adjacent to Siam Square. Additionally, an elevated footpath (called Sky Walk) connects Siam station to Central World Plaza, the Ratchaprasong intersection and Chit Lom Station.
