Even as a Bangkokian, I occasionally use the service of BTS for convenience and to avoid traffic especially during traffic hours. If your travelling route happens to be on or near the BTS and MRT, I strongly suggest you to utilize this mass transport system. Price is reasonable. You can control your travelling time. The A/C is nice and cool... More

I enjoyed using the skytrain as it was much faster than using taxis or any way of transportation on ground level... the only thing I didn't enjoy was the excessive A/C, I was just freezing on the skytrain :-/

Fast, clean and efficient but crowded as anything in peak hours. A good way to get around the main areas of Bangkok but avoid like the plague in peak hours unless you want to experience how a sardine feels.

The BTS trains are often packed, very unlikely to get seats if you are going to the popular places! But it is good to get to places directly like Chatukchak or Siam or Terminal 21.... but not to Chinatown or some really nice cafes though. That you might still need taxi or tuk tuk.

Amazing layout of the system, it's super easy to figure out and gets you anywhere in the city in about a half hour. We used it lots to get around as it is faster then a tuk tuk or taxi!

surprisingly clean, organised, easy direction, easy access, pleasant air conditioning every time i visit Bangkok, i rely on BTS, MRT and local taxi. BTS and MRT are more favorable for most location and continue with the taxi or other means of transportation. during rush hour, it is advisable to purchase a rabbit card where you could easily top up.
