Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    This is the best way to travel in Bangkok. It is underground and is not impacted by the notorious traffic jams in the streets. It is very cheap and there are machines with instructions in English to buy tickets (also ticket offices are available). It is not as extensive as in other cities but it is very efficient. Very clean, air conditioned and very easy to use.

    The bus terminal is huge and is messy. Need to walk a lot to go to the main entrance. Waiting for them to move to Bang Sue station.

    Took the local train to Mahachai from Wongwian Yai in Bangkok for a fun adventurous day trips adventurous because you never know how things will go when travelling on a Thai train.

    With only minutes delay, our train left off. Travelling through back gardens of people. Leaving Bangkok and heading towards the small port town of Mahachai. Originating as a goods train to transport local produce from the fresh markets back to Bangkok, this train now has a commuter function which only.

    When travelling with young children: do not expect anything to be step free and prepare for some lifting of prams as trains have very high bogies. Airconditioning is provided by means of opening the windows and a fan. Nowadays you can also buy a ticket at the conductor and pay with card.

    You can travel further onwards to the (in)famous Talad Rom Hub (Maeklong Railway Market) if you take the ferry to Tha Chalom.

    All in all we had a wonderful day and our older one really loved it!

    The BRT is kinda like a bus/metro hybrid. It's a bus with a fixed schedule that runs in dedicated lanes so very little traffic delay.

    Tickets are a flat 15 baht fee regardless of distance. There are ticket machines and customer service booth. They have clean waiting areas and English/Thai information displays.

    It's really easy to use. Connects to Chong Nonsi BTS and Talat Phlu BTS.

    It can get crowded and busy but everyone respects the space and nobody pushes (unlike in China)

    Very impressive system. 6am-11.40pm. Runs every 10-20 mins depending on day/time

    This is a specialised bus terminal just for Nakhonchai Air buses which mainly travel between Bangkok and northern cities such as Chiang Mai. Certain sections have air-conditioning.

    The nearest BTS is Mo Chit station and you can take either bus #3 or #77 to go there.

    Inside the bus terminal, there are several inexpensive food stalls and 711 shop. The seats inside the bus terminal are comfortable and you can get free 1 hour wifi.

    What's the difference between this and Mo Chit bus terminal? Mo Chit bus terminal handles all bus companies and is very crowded.
