“Best way to avoid traffic in Bangkok”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2012

If you can use this service, do it especially in the mornings and evenings and 100 percent on a friday evening when Bangkok is stuck, especially if it rains. You can buy a rechargeable card, just pay with coins or buy a day ticket. Major sights are connected: Siam Square, silom and Patpong, Sukhumvit Road and the weekend market.

“Fast and efficient”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2012

This by far the best way to get around Bangkok. We live in Bangkok and own a car but often leave it at home as it is quicker, less stressful, cheap and very efficient.

“ditch the traffic and use Skytrain”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2012

Traffic in Bangkok is the worst! If you take a Tuk Tuk you end up breathing all the gas fumes and in a taxi you just sit in it for hours. Thanks to Sky Train you can avoid all this.
