The best way to.move around Bangkok, and easily combined with taxis and motorcycles. The Rabbit pass works really well, allowing to.avoid getting ticket by ticket fares. Can be crowded!

Very easy to use and helps you avoid the crazy traffic congestion in downtown Bangkok. The ticket vending machines are very user friendly.

Quick train for moving around Bangkok more rapidly than with the underground. Be aware of the long stairs to reach it!
