Very good for getting around, but can get crowded during the morning and evening rush hours. Did not like the constant TV and sound adverts on the train

We all know that Bangkok is famous for its traffic. Avoid getting ripped off by taxis and tuk tuks by jumping on the Skytrain and paying a very low fare to get from one end of Bangkok to another very quickly.
