If the BTS doesn't get you where you want to go, try the MRT underground. You can't share tickets between BTS & MRT though. Excellent service and option of getting around Bangkok

Good to travel around some places in bangkok but they need to find solutions for the Sukhumvit station, its unbelievably long on rush hours, understandable but its really really long

If ever wanting to get to some locations in Bangkok in a hurry, take the MRT underground train. The train system hits many city locations and for a fraction of the price it would cost for say a taxicab. However, as one might imagine, if...More

Bangkok's MRT is very clean and efficient. Most of the time, it will take less time vs a taxi especially during rush hour.

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
