Easy and simple to use, Cheap compared to taxis. Most stations have escalators, you might have to carry bags down some stairs. Staff helpful and willing to give directions.

This airport to city link is a cheaper and easier way to reach central bangkok and connect with the BTS system. The trains are cozy with dedicated luggage shelves. It also beats the traffic during peak hours and ensures time. When we were returning back to suvarnabhumi airport from chaya phrai it was so crowded that i almost suffocated. it... More

Of course the airport rail link is often the best way to go to the airport or to go into the city. No traffic jam! But the big issue is if you arrive with luggage at your final station, the will be often no taxi. you have to use stairs.

Runs on time, good value for money. Clean and gives a good view of Bangkok. Take the day pass as soon as you get to a metro station.

Handy, fast and cheap but lugging bags up 6 flights of stairs to get to the right stop on the skytrain isn't the best way to start or end your holiday.

It doesn't help that through 'curious' reasons, there have been issues with the tracks meaning that the actual express train has been canceled and all passengers must take the regular long rail route. The platform is squelching hot -... More

Getting a taxi to Makkasan is nearly impossible - getting one back from there is even worse. In fact, I could have taken a taxi from the airport and made it home quicker. Taking a taxi is much easier.
