Fairly simple stop without a lot of things around it (market, food stalls, souvenir vendors). Good to go to wat arun. Location is south of Thammasat university, not north as it is on Tripadvisor- north is Wang Na ferry pier.

It's yet an other pier like other piers but it's more popular, cause from here you can get to Wat Arun. You need to take a small boat which ferry you across the Chao Phraya river and you have to pay just 5 baht. there is a market as well at Tha Chang pier... there are some food shops and restaurants too. It's OK to spend sometime here...

we walked down here from Khao San road, and several times got wrong turn lol. As we decided to go to China town and the best and fastest way to go there is by the ship. So we tried to get ship at this pier because it is the closest one from our position, expectantly the pier is beautiful with old fortes and park!!. Ship is cheap, only 15 Bath and always full, it would be difficult to get free bench, but you would be happily stand at board and enjoy river scenery until the shipworker blow its whistle, it will ruin your hearing lol, seriously the sound is like million thunders cracking the sky, be remember always, be stay away from this shipworker

Fairly unremarkable place where the original market and pier buildings have been replaced with a new colonial style building with lots of individual units. I think people visit here in transit rather than specifically to see the pier. I definitely wouldn’t go out of your way to come but it’s worth a mooch if like me, you are taking the boat somewhere else.

Busy little pier with boats and people coming and going all day. A few stalls outside pier and up street to left. Amulet Market further up. Close to Grand Palace. Good cheap local food. Take small shuttle boat across river to more stalls and food, short walkabout. Canal tour operator located at exit to street, many canal tours. Can bargain. Can get tour from here to Koh Khred island.

This is where you'll be dropped off and then walk to the Grand Palace, along the way out you'll notice lots of stalls selling food, drinks & fruits. Do try out the tiny pineapple, it's tiny but packs a punch! Had a bowl of tomyum gong pork it tasted very good as well~

When you're done with mission you could either walk back or tell the taxi/tuk tuk to drive you back "Tha Chang".

This pier provides ferry service to the opposite side of Chaopraya river bank at Tha Wang Lang, Tha PranNok and boarding sightseeing boat trip along the river. The pier building is also small shopping plaza with food & fruits stalls,restaurants and Buddhist amulets.

The pier is the closest one to the Grand Palace - just across the road. One of the river piers along the Chaophraya River which traverses Bangkok. You can take in the views along the river using one of the river taxis, and stop off here to visit the Grand Palace and the surrounds.

If you want to take a photo of Wat Arun you should be here at sunset time 5-6 pm. Preferably in winter.
