The BTS continues to be the Best way to get anywhere in traffic clogged Bangkok.Even the signs to encourage people to get there faces out of their phones are a treat

During the midday when the blistering heat of the sun is unbearable, I thank God and the heavens for the BTS. It is fast, clean and comfortable. Goodbye traffic! Of course it is also pricey (47 baht max) than the local or airconditioned buses but the time you save and the comfort is way worth it.

We have used the skytrain many times on our trips to Bangkok, can be busy but felt safe and reasonable value for money- at least you know the price rather than tuktuk and taxi drivers making up off meter prices.

Not too much to say here really, the process is quick and easy. The rail is actually a sky rail so you get to your destination quickly and you also get to view some of Bangkok that you wouldn't see from down below. Safe for all.

But a Rabbit, stored value card, and ride anywhere without worrying about time of day or distance. For a great ride if you have time, hop on the train at Saphan Taksin and ride it to Siam, it gives you great views of Bangkok and then you end up at Siam, the epicenter of all things shopping and eating.

Trains every 3 or 4 minutes, but always busy. Spent more time getting change for the ticket machines, as they don't seem to sell tickets from the counter, just give change.
