Safe and easy to navigate. However, depending on where you are going, a taxi is the same price for a large group. We also had to stand in long lines on occasion.

This train is very easy to use and affordable. It also allows you to see many parts of the city from above. Its one of the fastest ways to travel in Bankok and helps avoid the traffic.

Great experience using the BTS as it is really efficient and comes every few minutes, it really is easy to commute with and has English signs for tourists to read too. It is also wheelchair accessible with the lifts within the various BTS stations.

Easy to use and the quickest way to get around. Avoid rush hours. And follow the arrows on the floor, they are very disciplined and you should be too.And bring all your small coins, otherwise you will have to queue.

Tripadvisor put this as an attraction suggestion but when I thought about it, it really is a shining example of how easy the Thai people have made transport in Bangkok and countrywide easy for both locals and tourists alike. The BTS is like a second...More
