The skytrain is easy to use and is pretty reasonably priced for travelers. If you plan on using the BTS often you can also purchase daily passes or monthly. When you pay per trip you select your destination at one of the machines outside the terminal and pay according to the distance that you will be travelling. The BTS is a great way to get around the city and covers most of the places that visitors plan on visiting.
