The sky train is a fast and easy way to travel around Bangkok, it is as cheap as chips and is easy to buy tickets from the ticket machine, in English. You won't be disappointed with the service.

The BTS is the only way to get around in Bangkok, if you want to awoid getting stucked in traffic for hours! The trains are clean, the system works, also for disable persons and with small children.

One must stay close to the BTS system if you want a hustle free transport in Bangkok, you'll be able to move around with precise timing.

Follow it to the end of the line on Saturday to visit the largest outdoor market in Bangkok, anything and everything is there and I truly mean, everything

This was really easy to get tickets and get on and off. Its a shame there are only two lines covering central Bangkok as it would be great if it covered more of the city

I wish we had one in Brasil. Very good to go to the main sites of Bangkok and easy to locate yourself.
