Yeah, the sky train – I have just read an article on this form of transport and the person praising it. Ok, its fast, compared to a taxi it is very fast and can be cheap as well if you buy the 30 day pass and recharge it with 30 or so credits. The person who wrote the article was saying that the standard was better than being on the Tube. I have been on the tube a few times and I think its pretty much the same – I can often get a seat on the tube and often can get a seat on the BTS.
One thing which is really annoying on the BTS is the beeping that happens just before they close the door! It is soooo loud on the Sukhumvit line – it hurts my ears so much – please turn it down just a little.
Has any anyone ever noticed the Silom line trains can smell of cannabis when you get on after changing in Siam? I am 100% sure it is not cannabis, but it does have the same smell, maybe its the air freshener they are using.
