Best known as the Skytrain, the capitol's first mass transit system is a quick way to get around. The system isn't very big, with only two lines, so it probably won't go exactly where you going, but it can cut a lot of time from a cross town trip. Single trip tickets cost 15 to 40 Baht (0.40 USD to 1.07 USD). One-day passes good for unlimited trips cost 120 Baht (3.21 USD). Multi-trip and stored value tickets are also available. Read more about how to purchase Skytrain tickets using the ticket machines.

Sukhumvit Line

Mo Chit »
Station is right outside Chatuchak Park, and a short distance from the Chatuchak weekend market.
Saphan Kwai
Nothing much to see here, except the remains of an old local red light district.
Aree
Soi Aree, off Pahonyothin Road near this station, is yet another one of those areas of Bangkok inexplicably filled with trendy little shops and restaurants. There's nothing in particular to recommend here, and nothing larger that a supermarket to warrant a special trip to Aree.
Sanam Pao
Sanam Pao is the main army base in Bangkok, as well as home to the broadcast studios of the army controlled television station.
