Most of the stations do not have escalator or lifts. Staff of the ticket office speak like a bullet train and you need to ask them to repeat a few times. You need to climb the fleets of staircases!

Travelled on the BTS for a sort distance on a busy Saturday Great service, prompt and clean. Not expensive Will use it all the time instead of taxis

Take the time to learn the routes and how to purchase your tickets. This is the best way to travel around the city.

Very good way of transportation in Bangkok, but in coalition with Grab in long way, I prefer Grab for a up to 4 people. In short ways it's affordable and best choice.

Once you've used it, you 'll love it. Cheap, regular, quick. Travelled a lot this way. Loved the way people line up to get on - makes perfect sense! Nice and air-conditioned too!

Best way to travel around Bangkok. The traffic is ridiculous and it never stops seems like it. Oh and get a Rabbit card to avoid lines. But you will have to pay to get it. You can use it at resturants and stores around Bangkok...More

The BTS Skytrain works like clockwork, with clear maps and verbal instructions in English as well as updates on-screen inside the trains. Seats down both sides plus ample standing place works well.

The BTS, likethe other modes of transport in Bangkok, is amazing. The ease of access across the city is almost unparalleled in the rest of the world.

A good way to get around the city. Easy to use and all stations are announced in English so you know exactly where you are

Very easy to use, the Thai people are very polite and helpful, if you get lost, ask. Way quicker and cheaper than taxi.

Not that I’ve seen. There are three types of machines; basic ones at every station that accept coins only, and two larger types at some stations that accept bank notes.

Thais are generally kind to the elderly. But BTS is another story as didn't see much good access for the disabled. Some stations do not even have escalators, just stairs, plenty of them and my wife, who has back problems... More
