Owner description: Bangkok’s answer to mass transit started operating in December 1999 and is a convenient and useful way of getting around the city.

The current outings in Mumbai about Skybus/Mono Rail & Metro Rail aren't on positive node. Hence I feel lucky to get glimpse & experience of travelling through BTS.
BTS is very well connected. I saved MAP obtained from their website on mobile for convenience purpose.

We opted for it when we went to Chatuchak/Jhatujhuk Market. We took train at Phaya Thai & get down at Mo-chit.

Both stations are equipped with MAPs written in English & Ticket counter staff also speak & understand it.

Procedure of obtaining tickets(very simple & easy)-
1) The ticketing system only works on Coins so first check out Fair for One way/ Return Journey towards destination on chart.
2) Exchange Baht Notes with appropriate amount of coins.(If you got enough coins skip this step)
3) Select desired station & Put coins into machine.
4) Put ticket into validating machine & it will open the gate for you.
5) Don't misplace ticket as its key to enter & exist station without it I found no way to enter/get out of station.

Inside BTS-
It was office closing hours so as expected it was rush inside but soon got cleared. Victory Monument looked phenomenal. Overall its easy to access & most convenient mode of transport.

Tip-
Keep camera ready, Many things too shoot & capture.

The best way to travel. Always on time, no traffic and never says no ( like taxi drivers).
Very cheap, and easy to use. Just buy rabbit card and it will take you on all public transport around Bangkok.

This service makes life in Bangkok simple and accessible. Just watch out for the entrance and exit gates when carrying bags, as the sensors cause the barriers to close on you before you are through.
