Good public transport. However the ticketing system is not integrated with the MRT system and the range of the system does not cover Bangkok metro area as a whole making it not so user friendly as compared to other types of metros in Asian countries....More

Very convenience to roam around BKK without facing any traffic jam. Although the cost is almost same as taking a taxi if you are in a group of 3-4 pax

The skytrain is easy to navigate. If you want to get off the beaten path and explore, there are plenty of signage and others to help you. Rush hour was quite packed!

During peak hours and high travel season the BTS is irreplaceable. In my view the best option available to travel around the city.

Great way of getting around BK cheap efficient and operates till Midnight. Most machines only accept coins but ticket kiosks always manned to provide either tickets or change.

Used the rabbit card during our 3 days visits. Clean and convenient, but crowded. Have some difficulties when travelling with toddlers in the crowded train. At least, it beat the traffic jam in the city.

Budget 2 to 3 minutes per hop. But if you have lots of luggage, or not in good physical condition, BTS Sky Train might not be the ideal option since you will have to carry your luggage up and down flights of stairs to get to... More

It depends where you want to go. If you are just going to one area, for example Phloen Chit to Siam, it will be cheaper to take a taxi if there are 4 of you. If you are going around Bangkok or outside Bangkok for whole day... More
