  • Like the water taxis (really water buses) on the river, these fast canal boats are a great way to explore parts of Bangkok that aren't visible from any other perspective. The rides are cheap and safe....  more »
  • The long channel, followed by the transport boats-such a water tramway. It stretches through several districts, formerly mostly the poorest. The area was demolished, new buildings were created, mostly multi-storey. Here apparently you can see how the old Bangkok is changing as it civilizes. The Pratu-Nam stop is a busy communication point through which there are numerous officials and workers and vendors of a nearby bazaar.

  • Usually, I would agree to say it's a convinient, but by now the unprofessionalism has reached the boat. Putting a guy in a nice uniform on the pier is not enough. He also has to forward when need more boats in the morning. Total failure.
  • Interesting and extremely cheap way to explore more of the city. We do this everytime we visit Bangkok. I like to see how people are living close to the canal. The houses are very close.
  • Cheap and convenient. The fare-collectors cheat you or try to cheat you if you don't speak the language. All the time!! Know the fares BEFORE you get on the boat!
  • If you don't mind the smell and occasional shower with wastewater, khlong Saen Saeb is a fast way to go across the city.
  • This is another recommended choice for a trip. Traffic is a boat trip.
