Simple to use, very cheap, at the kiosk you state your desired destination and they give you small black discs that you scan on the barrier and when you've reached your destination pop the disc in the machine to take back. This form of transportation is a must in Bangkok in the rush hour, this or the taxi scooters.

The skytrain was clean and efficient good. Alive for money and got us everywhere we wanted to go. A little hard to negotiate but easy to turn around if you go the wrong way. Helpful staff in the stations. Quite packed at peak times. Good air conditioning.

In the hot and humid city it was a pleasure using the BTS sky train not only for an efficient method of reaching different areas, but for the delightful air conditioning system. The stations are well maintained and very clean and tidy. There are efficient queuing systems, information points and security bag searches at each station. Food outlets are at... More

The connectivity of the train network across the city to various parts of Bangkok is simply fantastic. Getting around couldn't be easier and affordable as this. Kudos to the transport planning for this!

Took took the Sky Train from the river area to BTK mall, was easy, cheap and much faster than a taxi. Just have your baht ready and take some time to figure out how to buy the ticket. Inside the train there is a light up display of which station you are approaching so even with the language and alphabet... More
