Take bts to avoid massive traffic. It's fast, air conditioned, cheap and very convenient. A little overcrowded during the pik hours.

Great way to see the sights of the city, getting around quickly and cheaply. You can buy a day ticket and just jump on and off at the different stations. Every thing is very well signed too.

BTS Skytrain was a most enjoyable experience. The scenic view was breath taking. We ate in one of the restaurants the food and service was great. Not to mention the shopping for souvenirs was fun and economical.

Highly recommended for anyone interested in public transportation and trains. The skytrain was clean, air-conditioned, fast, and offered an unbelievably smooth ride. Bangkok is a large sprawling city, and although it's not totally connected by this train, it's a great way to experience the city-scape...More

Is there any other way to get around? Easy, cheap, clean and goes everywhere! Loved it. Our hotel shuttle boat dropped us at main pier, access to the station very easy. Also did a long boat tour which also leaves from this pier.
