The Bts or the above ground Train service runs regularly. It connects to the Mrt (underground train) at Asok Bts. You can buy the tickets from the ticket machine which requires change and they only give one ticket at a time one way. In some train stations there are ticket machines that takes paper money and can buy more then... More

I qualify this as an attraction. It's very usefulll to use it and in the same time, you discover the city from the sky.

We used this as a primary mode of transportation from our hotel with our 4 year old twins. It was clean, cheap, and easy to use, and gets you to a lot of the main tourist attractions. It was, at certain times of day, very crowded, but still a great mode of transportation.

It gets you around town quickly and cheaply! And if it doesn't get you exactly to your destination you grab a taxi for the last stretch....

The system is easy to use. When you buy your ticket you pay the price and and the ticket lets you on and off later on. There are booths at the station to change your note in to coins

The best and fastest way to go around Bangkok at most affordable prices. If you're planning on taking any more than 3 or 4 rides in a day, better to go for a full day pass costing 140 Baht - which is excellent value for money! You can easily find change of money at the station counters, and its very... More

We purchased a 15 trip rabbit card, which we used over our week in Bangkok. The BTS is extremely efficient and spotlessly clean.

I don't know why this is reviewable as an attraction, but sure, why not. Whether you're in Bangkok for a day or a year, there's virtually no way to get from place to place without taking this. The major roads are far too clogged to make getting around via taxi viable. It's extremely clean, on par with Singapore's MRT, and... More

I juz got back from Bangkok. We tried the 1-day unlimited ticket bought at 140baht/pax. Very worth it. The card can access unlimited trip untill 12am mid night at the day of purchase. And we can keep the card as great souvenir.

I found the BTS Skytrain a breeze to use and loved it. I think it would be great if it was open until later though.
