Getting Around Bangkok: BTS

Bangkok is famous for having terrible traffic. But the city is trying to do all it can to ease the lengendary traffic jams and make it easier to get around in Bangkok. The BTS Skytrain is a relatively new train system in Bangkok. There are currently only 2 lines, but with a connection to the airport rail ink, it’s a good way  for most tourists to get into the city. The BTS has a section on their website devoted to  tourist attractions that can be reached via the skytrain.

But my favorite thing about the skytrain was the following sign:

Please offer this seat to monks.
