Great way to get around!

You must use this system to get around in Bangkok. Takes you to most major destinations, avoids the traffic, and cheap. No problems using it.

Yes, if you want to escape from Traffic jams of Bangkok. you need to travel on this, very helpful in reaching so many places in bangkok. We tried this BTS and reduced our travelling times and saved our money.

Fast and cheap. Last one goes around 11:50pm so make sure you don't miss it. Day pass is a good deal.

Clean and modern, the BTS Skytrain enables easy connection to the more touristy part of town rather than having to sit in traffic. Connections between different parts of public transport to enable an east end to end journey are not as convenient in as in other major cities in the world, but this certainly ranks highly amongst Asian travel for...

I actually lived in Bangkok, Thailand, when the BTS first opened. I also have lived in the U.S. capital, Washington D.C., and from the first day, the BTS was every bit as modern and efficient as that D.C. system. I recently visited Bankok again, and the BTS is as good as ever. Much more popular, with good-sized crowds making frequent... More

Really reasonable costs for a day pass, stations are easy to find, and trains come every 5 mins or something. Not sure how easy it would be for people with limited mobility or wheelchair users, there are ALOT of stairs, and I didn't notice any lifts

In the sometimes (!) heavy traffic in Bangkok, taking the sky train is the most efficient solution: it is quick, clean, air-conditioned and cheap. The additional good news is they are expanding the train to other locations.

Clean, simpel, punctual, cooled! Even though I dont like public transport, this one convinced me with a simple and clear ticketing- system and good connections. Besides from Public Transport in Singapore I hardly use it, this one suits me very well!

Spending some time in Bangkok? Take the BTS trains and do NOT choose Taxi! The traffic is a complete mess and the jams are crazy.. You're likely to get stuck for an hour at some of the most busy intersections! BTS and M-trains are the absolute best way to get BKK! Cheap, fast and convenient. You find yourself above or... More

Bankok has improved by heaps since the last time i have visited. Adding the BTS is the best thing for the city Have used the bts on a regular basis and it's always reliable. There is no need for a timerable as they come every 5 mins
