What a great way to go see the temples just drop on the skytrain and go to the river exit and take the river boat to the temples

Visited Bangkok for the second time in May 2013. On one of my visit days took a boat from Taksin pier to Wat Arun. Indelible memories. Boat a bit uncomfortable, lots of water splash, but nothing wrong with that, still alive and spirituality enriched even more

When I go I usually use the river taxi to get around. It's cheap, calmish and has a nice breeze. Good way to avoid being stuck in traffic
