You definitely need to experience this for sure as this is a great way to visit the places on the route. We were there for 3 days and we used it extensively to travel as its quite easy and convenient and better than taxis (specially if you don't like negotiation). BTS does not cover the entire Bangkok parts but it... More

BTS Sky Train is the great choice for those who want travelling around the city. at Siam station is so much crowded that you can buy single tickets from other station to use at Siam Station.

Great way to get to other travel hubs e.g. MRT and to travel the main tourist routes of BKK. During weekends and peak hour it's a bit of a squeeze sometimes, but not always and this is just art of being in a megalopolis I guess.

Trains are modern, clean and arrive on a good frequency, with a tight network of stations. The only downside is the antiquated coin ticketing machines, tourists actually form a queue at the control station just to change their notes for coins! Not the most productive job for the station staff, nor impressive for the visitors.

The skytrain is the perfect way to quickly get around Bangkok. It comes regularly, is air conditioned, is a good price and has good hours. Try to book a hotel near to a station and it will make any stay in Bangkok a lot easier.

Still one of my fav. way to travel around esp. when now everywhere seems to be jamming in Bangkok. Expecting jam packed crowd during knock off hours but everyone on-board still has their tiny little space to breathe. Link from Airport to Phya Thai station is quite convenience to take upon arrival but strictly no no for departure route. Cabins... More

It is cheap and have a good coverage for my needs, but extremely crowded in rush time. It was difficult to enter in the first 2 trains. Just got in the 3rd. But people were very considerate with the other is line.

After touching the key card and the plastic door automatic opens and closes. It's normally closes too quick. I got hurt several times. Once, I heard a VERY loud voice of hurt from a foreigner and he got stuck with the door! Please IMPROVED, by having longer time to pass thru.

no escalator is provided from ground level to concourse, only several stations have provided escalator leading to platform from concourse, it only provided a long staircase, too many passengers and too expensive but convenience.
