  • The river is convenient to move around on the local river minibuses. It ships with an Orange flag. Directions 15 baht in rubles 30 rubles per person. At 7 the Marina, you can hire a private boat tour through the canals of Bangkok. Spend time on such entertainment. We have the cost for four people came out in 1500 baht. With Banca stands the bargain.

Where to stay in Bangkok

As a commercial, cultural, and tourist center, Bangkok offers a great diversity of accommodations. For long established and chain hotels, try Sukhumvit Road and the areas surrounding the central Siam Square, where budget and luxury rooms are available in abundance. If you are looking for the backpacker zone, head to Khaosan Road, where you'll find a wealth of inexpensive, simple accommodations surrounded by businesses tailored to traveler's needs. Consider staying at a guesthouse to gain a deeper understanding of Thai life.
