An excellent and fast way to get around Bangkok. Tickets are inexpensive and several stations are located near shopping centres. Are crowded in peak hours, but that is the same in all major capital cities.

I use MRT nearly every day as a resident in Bankkok. As a pensionist you get half price. Just ask for "elder ticket" at the ticket counter.

I always take the MRT or bangkok metro to Chinatown (Hua Lamphong station), Terminal 21 (Sukhumvit station), Chatuchak or JJ market (Kampheng Phet station) whenever I visit Bangkok as it is fast, reliable and convenient. No more tuk tuk or metered-taxi bringing you to Diamond...More

if you want to avoid traffic and travel cheap (atleast than in taxi), MRT is a good option. Since I am used to using metro in Delhi, I loved it. took one from Chatuchak market.

For the first few days I lived in a part of the city that wasn't serviced by the MRT or the BTS and Oh how much easier would it have been if it had. The MRT and BTS undoubtedly offer the best means of transportation...More

We used the MRT system for one trip just to say that we have been underground in Bangkok. What we saw was a very clean and efficient method of transport.

Silom
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
