Good experience for travelers.
It’s easy to go different places by BTS. Quite clean and not too crowd. Traffic jam in Bangkok is serious but there are still not too many people choose to take BTS. Maybe it’s because the tickets are quite expensive for residents (around 30-70 baht for single way)

Resident will not speak loud in BTS and they queue with good order.

Waiting time is a bit long compared to Hong Kong (Around 5-7mins for one )

You'll need to know which station you need....from the map, it isn't obvious. But if you can't figure it out, the attendants we talked to spoke excellent English. Less than $1 to go 2 stops. Crowded but orderly.

The transport system in Bangkok is so easy to navigate. You cannot get lost. We were happy and comfortable getting the train everywhere.

The skytrain is really easy to get to and from the airport into the new part of bangkok. It’s super cheap and takes 30-40 mins depending on traffic. It’s absolutely great! To/from Phayathai for 45 baht.

Though sometimes a little crowded, especially in rush hours, this system is a fantastic way of getting through bangkok's traffic by moving on a wailways 20m above the busy log-jammed streets.
It's always clean, efficient and inexpensive for westerners. It also gives an opportunity to see Bangkok from above ground, which you can't otherwise do because its such a flat city.
