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.

This was our first trip to Bangkok and were impressed by how easy and inexpensive the BTS is. Our first day we started out in a taxi and the traffic was so bad we jumped out and opted to figure out the rail/metro system.

We used the skytrain regularly while in Bangkok for 4 days. It does get crowded, but it is clean and efficient. We were able to make our way across the city (even with a 1 year old) very easily. Overall I was very pleased the Bangkok BTS Skytrain and the underground metro system! I do agree with others, however, that... More

We found this to be a clean, cheap and convenient way to get from the airport to our hotel. We ended up using this several times throughout our stay to get to and from various parts of the city.

This is definitely the best way to get around Bangkok- its fast, easy to use and a day pass is a cheap way to get to all the major sights without the need for taxis or walking in the heat.
