For a solo traveler, it's easier to explore the city of Bangkok with Grab Bike than using MRT / LRT. Time and energy are more efficient. Between the costs of using MRT / LRT and Grab are only a small difference of + -THB 5-8

Traffic is nothing but a nightmare in Bangkok. if you can combine walking and using the MRT, it will probably be faster than a taxi.

Cheap, efficient and clean transportation away from traffic, travelling underground to avoid Bangkok's notorius gridlock. Vending machines produce token to insert into turnstile type gates into gates.

Fast and very reasonable prices. For eldery people some times difficult to climb up all the stairs, sometimes lifts can be used but not all stations.

Everywhere I go, I love to use public transportation. But here in Bangkok they didnt have a tourist pass like Singapore and Hongkong do. So sad as we dont have a special card during the time there.

We always use MRT when we visit Bangkok. It's a nice and safe way to get around. Both my wife and I are retired, and they do have discount for seniors.

For a city of 8 million people, the MRT and Sky Train systems are what every city should have, and are really the only effective way to move about the city without being impacted by traffic congestion. The trains are quiet, spacious (even at rush...More

Travelling on the MRT is a easy & quick way of travelling around Bangkok. Trains are frequent, quick, air conditioned and clean, they can be crowded at peak times.

Bangkok has public transportation figured out. The subway system is a great way to get around. The stations all seem to have escalators up and down unlike the Sky Train. The cost is very inexpensive and the trains run at a great frequency.

This is by far the fastest way to travel .It is clean & air conditioned (a BIG plus in tropical Bangkok) During rush hour it is often FULL but the next train will be along in 10 minutes (but it also be full)

Despite the lack of any major tourist attractions,
this lively neighborhood is a favorite of many.
Whether it's the (somewhat naughty) nightlife of Soi
Patpong, the various handicraft night markets or the
plethora of dining options that tickle your fancy, a
night out in Silom is a must on every itinerary. It's
worth a stop during daytime, too: join office workers
on a quest to tasty street food during lunch and shop
