Most tourists travelling to Bangkok have heard of, or are familiar with Bangkok's Skytrain - The BTS. But if you are not quite so familiar with the MRT - it is definitely worth checking up on. Check the route and the stations. It can save...More

Public transit is the way to go in Bangkok. MRT and BTS can take you pretty much anywhere in the city. Stops are announced in Thai and English.

The MRT is newer than the overhead sky train and benefits form air conditioning on the platforms, wider stations and convenience of access with escalators on almost all entry points. I travelled with my parents in their 70s, and they found this aspect much better...More

Punctual, clean, not overcrowded and inexpensive. A very good way to move in a city where traffic jams are permanent.

Bangkok's MRT is a great way to get around the system. It's punctual, regular, clean and inexpensive. The MRT has a broad network that gets you to most of the city's main attractions.

Despite the lack of any major tourist attractions,
this lively neighborhood is a favorite of many.
Whether it's the (somewhat naughty) nightlife of Soi
Patpong, the various handicraft night markets or the
plethora of dining options that tickle your fancy, a
night out in Silom is a must on every itinerary. It's
worth a stop during daytime, too: join office workers
on a quest to tasty street food during lunch and shop
