Chao Praya River, Ayutthaya

3.7
Known as the lifeblood of the capital city, Chao Praya River provides transportation, trade routes and sightseeing opportunities. Eat a meal alongside the river and watch boat crews at work transporting goods, or join locals and tourists on ferries that commute between city locations. For a more unique experience, hire a long-tail boat that can explore the canals, or take a river cruise with dinner included. If you plan to spend the whole day using the ferry, consider a tourist boat ticket, which allows unlimited trips for the day and points out sites of interest. Our Ayutthaya attractions planner makes visiting Chao Praya River and other Ayutthaya attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
