I have never had much trouble on the bts. It works great most times and travel is a breeze. The signages are easy enough to use.

Trains are punctual and are not really crowded ( except peak periods ) . Trains are also well ventilated however train stations are sometimes a little dirty and very very hot.

as BKK traffic is heavy at most time. Avoid peak hours 8-10am, 6-8pm and especially Siam station. Most covenient if travelling far and especially with a group of above 4 people.

We arrived in Bangkok around 3:30 pm and the train was a nice way to escape the city's caothic traffic. We went all the way to Paya Thai and took a taxi there around 4pm to our hotel near Kao San, paid around 110 Baht.

Slow glide along BKK skyline. It's nice that they always maxed out the A/C on the train because the weather outside was always humid.
