  • Always fun on the boat. Easy to tourist attractions (temples, Palace, Chinatown etc.) along the River to achieve or to an end for the fun to sail. Takes very little. The ordinary service boats are often full, the special boats for tourists (few baht more expensive) are more conveniently. Route BTS Saphan Taksin (central pier) to Phra Arthit Pier (Near Kaosan Road), the ordinary service even further to Nonthaburi. Good to the crowds at the River to see and the views of the coast. You can make beautiful pictures.

  • The boat ride on the Chao Phraya River deserves for the nice view and if you want to get places quickly. Be careful though to expect, prices can vary widely from one place to another, do not trust taxi drivers or those sitting around too. Recommend you do it in medium/large size boats, because on those little you get some great wash and because the water is very dirty doesn't do much pleasure! In any case a few hundred Bath he can spend on this experience.
