Took the BTS on my way to CHATUCHAK market. The train is clean, comfy and right on time. From the sound of the engine it is well maintained. Their train routes are easy to adapt and follow. No intersecting routes.👍

It’s my first time by myself in Bangkok and I had some worries about taking the train, but BTS took those worries away. It was easy to use and the staff were polite, albeit some language barrier in some stations. Trains were so clean too!

Try to avoid rush hour, besides that it is a very nice and easy way to travel. Remember to keep your ticket all the way, you need it for exit.
