The Skytrain is one of two public transit options (the other is the underground MRT). It is always clean and seems to be on time. Stations are announced in multiple languages. It's best to buy a multi-use card if you're going to be in BKK for several days.

BTSSkytrain cuts across the city along Sukhamvit Rd. Much fasterthan a taxi during rush hour. BTS has separate fare than the MRT, which is paid with a separate fare. All fares are distance based.

Easy to navigate and in English. Ticket dispensers mostly only take coins but each station have fast teller kiosks exchanging notes for coins. You pick your destination by matching the code number of the map...I.e. From Asoke to Siam Square is coded 28.
