Sky train covers all the main areas in Bangkok and is reasonably priced and easy to use. Very clean and safe but can be very busy most of the time and standing in the train is the norm especially on popular routes. Fully airconditioned in the trains. Protect your valuables as the trains are really crowded. Found this time there... More

The sky train (or BTS) is a fab way to get around Bangkok. Very safe way to travel and cheap - get a day pass for unlimited travel all day. Easy to understand map. Be aware that not all stops have escalators so you need to get used to steps! Also you can walk between some stops on walkway above... More

It is air conditioned! Also, to purchase a ticket, particularly if you haven't gotten a handle of Baht money yet, go to the window, tell the person what stop you are headed to (or point to it) and they will give you change for a Baht bill.

Like the efficiency. Buying tickets is hard unless you know how! However, the ticket attendants are quick and helpful.

It's just like taking the Metro in Los Angeles. Everything is listed (maps), and the speaker announces which exit is coming next.

Can't take you there, this is the next best.... Of course, a tuk tuk, how could I forget. My apologies to all of the nice tuk tuk Pilots.

Super easy, cheap and quick way to get around Bangkok - the trains are very clean with air condition! Only downside is there are just two main lines so the service doesn't cover the whole city (especially main tourist attractions)

Clean and very safe, easy to get around and helpful staff. Connects to the BTS to simplify getting around BKK. Just do it to save time and avoid the BKK traffic congestion.
