“Easy, quick and inexpensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

My title pretty well sums it up. Make sure you check the times of daily operation as it's not 24 hours a day.

“Gets you into town without sitting in the heavy traffic”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

The rail link is efficient to get into town.
Simple to find, On time and clean. train communication good as messages are displayed and tannoy speaker messages of the details of the next station.
Can get very busy though.

However if travelling into Sukhumvit where most of the hotels are you have can go the long way around via Phaya Thai (end of Line) and change to the BTS line or..

The quicker route is to get off at Makkasan and walk to the MRT Phetchaburi underground where you can travel to sukhumvit station. However note that Bangkok rail system stations do not link very well with each other. (bad design of station positions).
This means that you have to walk +-500m through busy traffic packed streets dogging traffic and shopping stalls to find the MRT. It is not difficult to follow this route as you just follow the other 50 + people doing the same thing.

“Good connection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

It's difficult to drop in Bangkok, being scary from the taxis and their incredible prices. Fortunately you can reach the city in 30mn with this shuttle, with air con, and for a few baht. You'll be then drop at a Skytrain station, really useful to reach your place then

“Fast and cheap.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

It's a really good, cheap, fast and efficient rail link from Bangkok's main airport to the heart of the modern centre, just make sure you know where you are going if you arrive at night.
