In a big city this is an excellent way to move quickly. The signage is excellent and buying tickets simple. Change is available. Around peak hour it can be hectic but that's Bangkok, enjoy the buzz!

A great way to get around the city. Quick, clean and cost effective. The fare is distance based. Easy to navigate as the fare collectors will help you get to where you want to go.
