Subway is a good and cheap transportation mean when traveling around Bangkok. Although it is much cheaper and easy to travel by ferry, there are some places you can’t get by boat, so in those cases a good alternative is to use this system (you don’t have to bargain with taxi drivers or be extremly overcharged). Especially when you need to get to and from the airport!
The fares to pay depend on the number of stations you need to travel, so you will have to do the math according to the table we describe below.
