I take a day tour by boat fares at various points of the river has several attractions along the river. I prefer to travel by boat Quick and easy You can admire the view on both sides of the river. I visited attractions such as Wat Arun.

We took the boat from Ayattura to Bangkok. The trip was not very interesting except for a few nice buildings along the way.

The longest river in Thailand, it goes through many states & is the biggest water giver to the villagers for their day to day living. Does not look that clean but its a life saver for the villagers. The river is used a lot for transport.

Commercial traffic (sand from up country on Barges) travelling at odd hours, may disturb lighter sleepers. Tourist traffic as to be expected, from town and further afield (Bangkok) with music and party's.

Relax trip.. well organised, just need to follow the assigned guide. Hungry enough when boarded the cruise for lunch, then enjoy the scene along the river. Thai food served is fine, no bad comment about that.

It's good to try travelling around by ferry. It's cheap and interesting way to learn how water transport works in Thailand.

We boarded our longtail boat to Ayutthaya and sailed along the Chao Praya River. Our adventure began and what a stunning adventure. From the hustle and bustle of Bangkok to the tranquility of Ayutthaya. The houses were amazing and alter in size and condition. What I found amazing was of the uses the river has for locals. We saw children... More
