BTS stations and their meanings

Only some of them are.

That's why my post said "mostly". More names that way than not? Of course The Royal Thai Naval academy isn't or Kasetsart Univesity or maybe even Siam Interchange.

The BTS names are quite easy but MRT not so.

 

What is CHong Nonsi

Ploen CHit. I thought 'chit meant close wind'/ Ploen

Pu CHao?

And Bang CHak, again can't get a straight answer.

PloenChit

Ploen is delighting/delightful

Chit is heart/mind

 

Next street down is Chitlom (Next to/beside the wind) and the small soi next to Central is Soi Somkid

 

Old Roads/Sois have names that aliterates 

Upper Sukhumvit Sois from Nana to Thonglor have names that run off the tongue more than just numbers like that

Soi Sawadee

Soi Paidee Madee 'goes well, comes well' said to be named so because when the soi first came into being, a chief of police live there and there are no crimes in the soi whatsoever.
