The best way to get around Bangkok and stay cool and avoid the slow, heavy traffic of the city during rush hour. It is easy to figure out the system and has convenient stops that are easily within walking distance of most attractions. Good transfer points as well. Not too crowded during the midmorning thru afternoon.

Make sure you find the escalators otherwise can be tricky to get up there with cases or Backpack. We linked with the airport line and then took a Tuk Tuk for a short journey to our hotel. Nice way to see the city, so easy to buy ticket much easier than in London.

We took the skytrain several times. It is a great way to get through Bangkok. Easy, fast and not expensive. I can highly recommend it!

This is a great way to get around Bangkok. Of course, it doesn't go everywhere, but you can at least get part way there if not all the way. If you are using it a lot, I recommend getting a one day pass. It's economical if you are going to be using it a lot in one day and you... More

Had a 2km walk back to the hotel. After filling up on some delicious Thai food, didn't feel much like walking 2km. The sky train station was right there at the shopping center where I had just eaten. I headed up a flight of stairs bought a ticket for 15 baht (40 cents) and enjoyed the view from above. I... More

Be careful of the ticket gantry, it is narrow and closes very fast. It becomes a bit of a issue if you carry a lot of things, and trying to walk through the gantry as swift as you can.
