Lifeline of the town

I saw the Chao Phraya river many times during my sightseeing trip to Ayuthaya. I first saw the beautiful river during my visit to the Japanese village in Ayuthaya. I again saw the river when I visited the Wat Chai watthanaram temple complex. I saw some tourist boats carrying tourist from Bangkok to Ayuthaya.

A “must do” excursion
Mar 2020 • Couples
Any visit to Ayutthaya is incomplete without a boat trip on the Chao Phraya River. It’s the perfect way to view many of the city’s relics. And there are plenty of options to suit any budget, time available and both with or without meals. If you have the time, it’s perfect to go in the late afternoon, to see the temples both in sunlight and sunset.

Peaceful calm ride for good views and food en route to Bangkok

Weather was great in January and non stop camera actions. Food served were surprisingly good for a provided buffet. The grand finale was when cruise boat headed into Bangkok. So beautiful

A Royal River in the Heart of Bangkok
Feb 2019
When visiting Bangkok, it is inevitable to come across this Royal River. Along it, there are many tourist attractions such as Royal Palace, Temples, Flower Market, many world-class hotels for great river views, and restaurants. A river cruise is a good way to enjoy the fabulous reiver view especially at night for the illuminated scenery.

Quiet Slow RIver

As this is the dry season the river was low and canals nearly empty (however the ones around the wats are full). Nice atmosphere to look at over lunch. Dinner time is dark although there are river cruise/dinner boats that float by occassionally.

Great boat trip.
Nov 2019 • Couples
We hired a small boat for 1,000 Baht for five of us. The trip went through a small river past local residences showing how the people here live.
We then emerged onto a larger river and stopped at an ancient Wat , then on to two more wats and finally we motored onto the large Chao Praya itself which was afloat with extremely large barges being towed by powerful tugs.

The riverside is populated with many restaurants, wats, residences and hotels that ordinarily one wouldn’t see on land.

The trip was a few hours long and included many sights and obviously we avoided the large crowds.

We would certainly recommend a trip like this
