    How to get to Sampeng Lane Chinatown on the MRT 

    The way to get to Sampeng Lane by public transport is to take the MRT Metropolitan Rapid Transit
    (subway) to the Hua Lampong Station. Walk out exit 4. Straight ahead you will see bus 40 waiting there usually. It takes you to Sampeng for only 8 baht. Have fun seeing the sights and sounds of Chinatown!
