    We happened to take the Chao Phraya Princess Cruise from the Iconsiam Mall. The river is a travel to remember You get to see a few temples, The Grand Palace and the magnificent Rama Bridge. The Bangkok skyline is truly fascinating.

    A great experience travelling on these long tail boats but keep your hands in the boat. The canal water is absolutely filthy and the boats can be very splashy at speed.

    Now this is a unique way to really get around Bangkok. Best described as being dirty and dangerous... but also handy, vibrant and exhilarating.

    There are two options, the klorng boats, which run from 5:30am to 10:30pm, with ticket prices around 8B to 20B. These hold about 40-50 passengers, have dubious safety equipment, unreliable timetables but zoom down the canal at breakneck speeds. Whilst they have plastic tarpaulins you are fairly low to the water and always face the possibility of getting wet from the spray.

    The other alternative is the tourist hop on/hop off boats which run from Pratunam (bear the Central World Plaza) and Panfa Leelard, just behind the Mahakan Fort, at Phanfa Bridge. These are more expensive, but cheaper and quicker than a taxi, they give you the same experience as the local klorng boats but at a more leisurely and safer speed. Can purchase a one-way or all-day ticket.

    I used to live in one of the Onnut condos (LPN Sukhumvit 77, Onnut Soi 3 and 5) which stands about 800 m down Klong Prakhanong's starting pier, whose daily flow was part of the highlight of my 10 years' stay in that condo. Now I'm living in yet another LPN condo located along SeanSaep (Asoke - Bangkapi line), which is also good, although I've never tried it - just looking. I'm originally from Matsue city in JPN, which is also called
    "Venice(-like town) of the Orient", offering the boat rides (safer version than BKK's) exclusively for tourism purpose. My life seems to have been evolving with and along these Klongs.
