One of ways of transportation in BKK. Convenience for travelling around BKK. It's cost saving than taking taxi or other tut tut.

The BTS is a very efficient and quiet train system in Bangkok. Train interval is approximately 5 minutes or so. Generally, if you take the train from busy stations, you won't get seats. The only one thing I don't like about the BTS is the price. If you are travelling as a group, it may be better to call a... More

People are jammed in but everyone seemed polite. Prices were very good and the Skytrain was clean as well as the stops. It sure beats trying to drive in the Bangkok traffic which is unnerving. There are people available to help you find your way around if your a tourist.

By far the best way to get around bangkok seeing as the roads are gridlock most of the time . If using for the first time it can be a little confusing and the women in the ticket office do little help you . Basically to get on the train you need to buy a ticket from the ticket machines... More

Navigating through Bangkok can be very challenging with the usual traffic jams. The Skytrain is an excellent way to not only save time but also see the city from above. It has become very popular, hence it does get very busy. Unfortunately most ticket vending machines accept coins only, you might want to buy a multi trip pass if you... More

Even though it was crowded, it sure beats taking a taxi or tut tut as the roads are often congested!

Super easy to use, fast and efficient. Make sure you have change from the change booth before you get in line for a ticket.

The Skytrain is very easy and cheap to use to get around Bangkok, also direct to the airport which is very convenient.

The BTS Skytrain is convenient as it has multiple train lines that are closely connected throughout the city. Aside from the rush hour traffic, it is usually clean and safe. I just wish it had a station that extended out towards the temples, Khao San Road and Chinatown area.
