It’s time to touch their pink venom one more time, for BLACKPINK is coming back to Bangkok for an encore concert. We have the ultimate guide on how to get there and survive it.
How to survive BLACKPINK’s Bangkok Concert this 27-28 May 2023
They’re in your area once again—BLACKPINK will be in Bangkok on 27-28 May, 2023. They’ll be playing at 7pm on both days at Rajamangala Stadium, Thailand’s national stadium located in Hua Mak subdistrict. Ticket prices start at THB 2,800, with the highest price being the VIP package for THB 14,800, which entitles you to a ticket, access to soundcheck session, early access to the stadium and merchandise store, as well as an exclusive collectible laminated card with lanyard.
What else should you know prior to arrival at BLACKPINK’s Bangkok concert? Keep reading on and find out.
How to get to Rajamangala Stadium
Parking isn’t really much of a problem at Rajamangala as much as the traffic surrounding it. When there’s a big event in town, BLACKPINK doing a Bangkok concert for example, there will be plenty of time to sit in the car and pray you can get out that area in an hour. Bangkok public transportation provides a lot of alternatives:
Train – The BTS and MRT doesn’t go as far as Hua Mak, so the closest you can get to is via the Airport Rail Link. Simply transfer to Airport Rail Link at BTS Phaya Thai or MRT Petchaburi, then ride the Airport Rail Link to Hua Mak station. That will get you close enough for a brief motorcycle taxi or taxi ride to the stadium.
Bus – Bus numbers 22, 60, 71, 92, 93, 99, 109, 115, 207, 501, and 545 also work. You can also download the app ViaBus to plan routes from your home.
