This is the best of transportation system in Bangkok. It's fast, clean, cheap and very convenient, even though it's very crowded, especially the peak hour.

With the BTS skytrain, you can move around Bangkok with ease. No traffic jams worry with the BTS skytrains. Supplement it with taxi if your destinations is away from the skytrain stations.

A little daunting at first, but once you figure it out you'll use the sky train daily to get around. 130 baht gets you a day pass, highly recommended way to avoid Bangkok's legendary 24/7 gridlock. Yes, it does get very busy and very crowded at times.

We used both the subWay in the sky train but in my opinion the subway is better. I prefer to be underground where it is cool. Of cOurse bOth miss the traffic- the horrible Bangkok traffic. We stayed near one of the canals which neatly connected with the subway. The pricing seems abouT The same.

If you want a pleasant trip in Bangkok, avoid taking the BTS during rush hours (8 am - 9 am and 5.30 pm - 6.30 pm)

We always use the BTS skytrain to avoid a traffic that is very convenient, clean and fast. But we don't understand why it is stopped time to time in between the station.

Bangkok is one of city with bad traffic jam. Using sky train or BTS would be more advantage. Cheap, easy and never stuck on badly traffic jam. The signboard in every station is clear and you won't get confused with the language. The fare is minimal 15 bath and maximal 55 bath per way.

Traffic is a big problem, sometime we spent 2hours in a taxi. BTS skytrain is the best choice to avoid the heavy traffic in Bangkok. The price is cheaper than a taxi.

Bangkok is famous for traffic jam. Skytrain can be reasonable choice than a taxi or tuktuk. 3.IT HAS THEIR MAP ON THE BACK OF TICKET. Can you imagine how much... More
