Central Bangkok is known for its heavy traffic flow, hence the sky train is always the smarter choice. it is not only convenient but reliable , punctual and cost saving. Check your routes to ensure your destination is do-able by Skytrain.

the bts is cheap and very easy to work out how to use even if you don't speak thai although does get very busy so expect to be jammed in like a sardine at some peak times. but much better than getting shaken down by a taxi driver all trains are air-conditioned and a trip will set you back a...

Great way of getting about Bangkok. Cheap, a bit packed, but runs well and very easy to follow routes.

We stayed in riverside condo just across the river opposite Shangri La hotel. We just had to take the condo shuttle boat to reach Saphan Taksin BTS station to go on Silom line to major shopping centers. BTS is great if you stay near a station.

learn it - use it. it will save you a lot of money vs debating a price with the taxis. It goes everywhere you want to with some walking. If your staying along time, buy a one day pass or a rabbit card, it will save time when traveling during rush hour - no need to wait in line for... More

The BTS Skytrain is a very cheap and an effective way of getting around Bangkok. It is exactly like the London underground, except even easier, cleaner and cheaper. You cannot get lost! All above ground and a good way to see the sights as you travel.
