We use the BTS sky train a number of times during our 4 days in Bangkok. We could have taken a taxi but we preferred the sky train to avoid the never-ending rush hours and traffic jams. We note that some of the stations do...More

Super easy way to travel across Bangkok, as long as your destination is near the limited routes! Can easily get close to your destination and then either walk or TukTuk it the rest of the way

It is very easy to use and great to avoid the horrible Bangkok traffic. Also, we found it to be very clean. It can get super crowded.

This is the quickest way to travel about in the city. Once you get used to the ticket system its fairly easy to use. Its not the cheapest way to travel but its the most efficient and coolest!

The BTS is very efficient, clean and safe. It beats the heck out of Bangkok traffic. The only negative is the it is not as extensive as rail is in other cities, but it is great nonetheless.

Clean, cheap, punctual. We travelled all over Bangkok via the sky train. We found the ticket machines easy to navigate although always have change with you as they don't take notes. A typical 15 minute fare is about 35 baht. Finding a seat is easy...More

As a family we had two days in Bangkok and used the BTS skytrain extensively. We bought day passes for 150bht each. It's easy to use and the routes are clearly marked. The skytrain is fast, reliable, efficient and clean. Certainly beats haggling with taxis...More

Good way to get around to places near BTS stations. Frequent trains - although crowded pretty much all day. Cheap, clean and plenty of help available. Having coins is a plus and will get you through faster.

Cost seems to be a bit high, particularly when we compare with the Uber rate for a family of 4 or 5 people. Citizens very co-operative and seeing our family (of tourists), a lady gave place to my daughter to sit.

Oh dear! A tough one. Please pick your top 20 destination and I guess you will see most of them (not all of them) have a station nearby.

Peak hours are 07:00 - 09:00 and 16:00 - 19:00 M-F. The service runs between 6.30 and midnight. We travelled in the late afternoon and early evening and it was crowded but not crammed.
