Siam station (Thai: สถานีสยาม, RTGS: Sathani Sayam, pronounced [sā.tʰǎː.nīː sā.jǎːm]) 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 and Silom Lines change trains.
Siam station is one of two BTS stations utilising an island platform, the other being Samrong. At Siam, this is to facilitate transfer between lines, while at Samrong it's to be a transfer point when the extension was a separate line on trail run, it's pointless nowaday. 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 Bang Wa and Kheha.
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 via skybridges to the Siam Square One, Siam Paragon, Siam Centre and Centerpoint of Siam Square shopping centres. It is also adjacent to Siam Square. Additionally, an elevated walkway (called Sky Walk) connects Siam station to Central World Plaza, the Ratchaprasong junction and Chit Lom station.
