I took a ride on the busy sector Ekkamai to Chidlom and reached my destination swiftly avoiding the bad Sukhumvit traffic jam . Waiting time for train was also minimal. However the BTS can be improved - I had to climb many stairs as there are very few escalators ( difficult for elderly and people with mobility problems) , the... More

They only utilize machines that require coins and even once you have stood in line for 20 minutes in a queue for personal service, the just give you change for notes then indicate for you to move on, where you then have to go back and wait in another queue for the machine again. Still vastly superior to the subway... More

Bangkok street traffic is very congested. The Skytrain can get you there much faster, if you are near a station.

The BTS is an excellent service to travel around Bangkok, it does get very cramped around 4 to 6pm. Much better than taking a Tuk Tuk

not the most effective net work and at prices you can easily get a taxi which is going to be faster in most cases especially if you want to go the the old town

So so easy to use. There are machines to pay by coin and others by note or you can go to the ticket booth and either buy your tickets there or ask for change! Everything is clearly signposted so you can't go wrong :)

Clean, punctual and AC. Can be crowded but civilised queuing in line compared to scrum in London. Reasonable cost. Always need more stations.
