Transportation in Bangkok?

Hi,

Just need a bit of advice, do you have to buy separate tickets for BTS and MRT or is it like London Underground? E.g if you buy a day pass for the BTS do you still need to buy an MRT ticket for any journey you need to go on there?

Just thought I'd mention that you'll be able to get a map of both systems from most of the BTS stations which will be very useful.

Interested to see that you come from Guildford. Traveltom (Mr Travelkat) was born in Shalford and went to Pewley Secondary Modern Grammar School. Small world isn't it.

Enjoy your trip to Bangkok. It's a wonderful, exciting and vibrant city.

Thank you, as I am staying near Asoke will probably need both tickets most days. Thanks for all your help! :) & Travelkat - I drive past Shalford every day on the way to work, small world!
