The Chao Phraya River must be seen at night and in the day. During the day we stopped along the river at some of the many Historic sites but at night we were in a special dinner boat and enjoyed an amazing Thai dinner as we past these same sites lit up at night as we dined. This is a... More
We took the tourist boat which allows for you to get on and off as many times as you would like. It was hot and smoggy and after a few hours we both wanted to get back to our hotel and relax by the pool. We took a number of pictures while on the boat and these show the radical... More
We fully enjoyed the long boat ride on the river. A bit choppy, we had fun in the middle of traffic. Then the boat toured side klongs to see some of the older homes on the river. The area by our hotel is all redone so none of the "old" Bangkok remains. It was fun floating by some huge Wats... More

All life is to be found on the river. My advice is to pick a hotel, hop on and off the river taxis and enjoy! If you stay on the river your hotel will have a free boat to Sathorn Pier where you can get the MTR, taxi or tuk tuk. We bought a one hour tour at the pier... More
Travelling the Chao Phraya River by tourist ferry is a great way to sit back on take in the sites after a busy morning visiting the Grand Palace, Wat Arun or Wat Pho. Take a long boat for a chance to see the city by the canals.
We bought a day ticket on the Chao Phraya Tourist boat at a cost of 150 Bahts which was excellent value. You can travel up and down the river all day and the boat services eight piers which enables access to most of the famous tourist attractions of Bangkok. Great value.
Bangkok is essentially a riverside town, and many of its major monuments (as well as fascinating minor monuments) are best visited from the river. Boats are cheap and plentiful.
