Seeing Bangkok from the river is a must for a visitor to this city. But, avoid the day rates with the tourist boats that promise to let you hop on and hope off. They are ridiculously expensive compared to the normal river buses which charge...More

Chao Phraya is a river located in the heart of Bangkok. There are plenty types of water transportation, from basic motorboats to fancy ferries with restaurant and live band. It is a good option to take a ferry from Royal Palace to flower market.

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

If you want to be pampered I suggest the Peninsula which is on the river and has 3 ferries. Worth it.
