Highly recommend you take a day or evening cruise, the views and lights are spectacular and you don't know how cosmopolitan BKK is until you see the views from the river.

Plenty of boats plying the riverways. If you get seasick, please avoid this activity. Do it during dusk to see the change of light, and also the night lights of the buildings from the river. You can reach Icon and Asiatique from here.

Bangkok is a city with long history of Buddhist traditions and South Asian culture. The historic quarter of city is located on the banks of Chao Phraya river. Spectacular temples, glorious Buddhist monasteries, local markets, museums and the Grand palace are on the side of the river, so a boat ride on Chao Phraya will be a great way to explore it. I was on a solo trip to Bangkok last December, the climate was sunny and comfortably warm, nice to have long and easy walks through the less crowded streets, temple courtyards, seeing local life and tasting yummy Thai dishes. I was staying at Rambuttri road, nearest point to catch the boat is from Phra Arthit Pier. Full day hop on hop off ticket will be a good option, costs around TBH 200. The boat have stops at all important places, and the temples/ markets are within walking distance from the stops- Wat Pho, Wat Arun, Grand place, China town, Flower market etc. . Before moving to the next destination Chiangmai - Phuket, this is a great way to enjoy the Bangkok. Cheers…

A great way to spend an evening in Bangkok. Have dinner on one of the many river cruises and see the city at night. Stunning.

Looks spectacular from a distance. Only ever went on to the river to cross from attraction to attraction. The price of crossing is very cheap, and it’s very handy. The water is very choppy and a little intimidating whilst you’re on it!
