Great to get around but so overcrowded it's almost dangerous
Sometimes you have no choice but to use it as traffic is so bad

Newbees: jump into the BTS Skytrain to get a great view on Bangkok.
Clean, safe, with a high rotation of trains (you never wait more than a couple minutes).
The only drawback is the weird fact that tickets are not compatible with the subway...
Think about the Day Pass is you plan on hopping in and out.

This transport is cheap and easy to use for a tourist, if you are going to use it more than a few times get a "rabbit" pre paid travel card, makes it so much easier than buying single tickets.

We took the train from Chatuchak park until Ratchathewi. Right from ticketing to the entry was effortless. The people on the station as well were helpful in letting us know the line to be taken. A lovely experience. For all travellers on budget or otherwise, I would suggest to take the buses or the skytrains, they are 10x better than the taxis or tuktuks.

The BTS Skytrain is an easy and fast way to get around most of Bangkok. For an easier experience, instead of using the ticketing machine, you can go up to the counter to buy from the counter staff. However, only cash is accepted. Credit card is not

Take a little bit of time going over BTS routes and stations in relation to where you would like to travel around Bangkok and it is an effective means of transport.
Trains run like clock work and if you just miss one then another is only a couple of minutes behind

I used the BTS and MRT extensively as I roamed around Bangkok. Inexpensive and efficient service that complemented my use of taxies and tuk tuk.
