Firstly it’s extremely busy, At Asoke BTS packed platforms are the norm. Queues can be extremely long to even purchase tickets or to get change for the ticket machines. This situation is mirrored at Sukhumvit MRT station. So if you plan on living in Asoke and using public transport, daily it is usually worthwhile to buy a Rabbit card.

However none of this is surprising, Asoke is one of the busiest parts of Bangkok. Hotels are everywhere, tourists and ex pats are also everywhere, usually frequenting some of the thousands of bars and restaurants in this area. Asoke is also one of the busiest business districts. Many major international companies have their Thailand headquarters in and around Asoke. Asoke BTS itself lays in the shadow of two huge office blocks, The Exchange and the Interchange towers. Thousands of workers flood to these two buildings alone every single day.
