It is really an amazing experience to take a long trip up the river. I often go to the last station. Take the public boat instead of the tourist boat. It is cheaper and same experience.

First of all, Chao Phraya Express Boat isn't the same as Chao Phraya Tourist Boat. You can recognise Chao Phraya Express Boat by their flags at the back of the boat: orange, yellow, and green flag. Although these boats run along the river, the different...More

We hopped on these boats again, as with previous visits, they are a great way to take a leisurely ride up the Chao Phraya river. Plenty of stops up and down the river, and just a good way to take a rest from the break...More

It's the easiest way to travel on Chao Phraya River. Just use a map or GPS because the information is a little hard to understand.

No way to buy tickets in advance and they try to rip you off big time. It should be about 10Bhatt but they tried to charge 50Bhatt for one stop. To be fair just about everyone try to scam you....

Chinatown / Yaowarat
Better known as 'Yaowarat' among locals, Chinatown is
Bangkok's bustling district that never sleeps. During
the day, the main street and its small alleyways are
filled with a vibrant mix of colours, scents and
flavours coming from the roadside restaurants and
all-day markets. The real action, however, happens
after sunset. Surrounded by neon lights, Thais and
tourists alike flock here around dinnertime to feast
