The BTS in Bangkok is undoubtedly the swiftest way to get around the city. It's a cheap, smooth, cool, clean, fast and scenic way to enjoy Bangkok. Major shopping malls, Chatuchak Weekend Market, all Sukhumvit Road's attractions, and even the riverside are accessible by Skytrain.
While the Silom line runs west to south, the Sukhumvit line runs north to east. So, if you're new to Bangkok, it's a great way to find your way around and see a large part of what the city has to offer. Note that Service runs between 6.30am and midnight, and the trains can be packed during peak hours (from 7am to 9am and from 4pm to 7pm).
