Definitely you cannot come to Bangkok and not using the skytrain BTS. The cheapest way to move around in the centre of bangkok. It can be very busy at rush hour but most of time fluid traffic.

I travelled to Bangkok in 1980 and thought that I would never go back as the traffic was horrendous. My husband had never been so we visited and have visited quite a few times since then. The Skytrain makes travelling in the city much easier....More
