Used the sky train to get from central pier to patpong market. Very easy to use. Either pay with coins at the machines or pay at a kiosk. Cost 30 Bhats each way.

Fast way to transport around the city. The people always give up their sit for my young daughter. Can be crowded but as always is with other countries’ public transport. Nothing bad to say

Nice modern skytrain. Though not modern in terms of ticketing, old cash only set up. You can probably get a prepaid card somewhere, thought not on site at the regular stations. Little line ups for the coin only machines, a long-ish ones for the cash...More

From Pratunam, walk towards Central Dept store and across you will find the BTS station. Take the BTS to Saphin Taksin. Get on a river boat and you will have access to all the places you want to visit.
