We had great time in a boat that took us to the most representative places of the river. We could see landmarks. Don’t miss it!!

There are a variety of boats that travel the Chao Phraya River. The local boat to Nonthaburi is my favorite. Unfortunately, since I posted my first review 8 years ago, it has been overwhelmed by tourists. At a cost of than 50 cents for the local boat, who could blame them. Therefore you must arrive at Sathorn Pier between 11am and 1pm on a weekday. Buy your tickets before boarding (because it’s the right thing to do.) If more than 20 people are already waiting don’t board but wait for the next boat. Everyone will rush for seats on the starboard side but an outside seat on the port side should suffice. After most of the tourists depart, enjoy the final 30+ minutes of your 80 minute journey to the last stop. Walk around Nonthaburi, sample different foods, enjoy the absence of row upon row of souvenir shops selling the same things. Return to the boat and make sure you get an outside seat on the port side (or wait for the next boat.) Enjoy your return trip to Sathorn Pier. Photo opportunities abound, especially with the afternoon sun at your back

Plenty of options to cruise down this river, from inexpensive ferries to private longboats, which are fast and fun. Plenty of interesting stops you can make, from temples to shopping centers, and it beats the heck out of Bangkok traffic.

Went up and down this river when we took the ferry to all the tourist spots. Little unclean but the ferry system on the river helps connect parts of the city

One of the best things to do in Bangkok, whatever way you chose to travel it. Go during the day to see all of the amazing sights along the river.

While on tour with our group, our guide took us in the local river boat on the river and through the lock system lowering us down to the water level. Thoroughly enjoyed the time spent on the waterways

I just cross the river on my way to Wat Arun. The river is clean though the water is sandy and black in color.

Just hop on one of the many water buses or long tail boats and cruise the river. You can see tons of temples and skyline views along the way. Fairly easy to navigate the stops.

I have been on and near the river for many times now. It's important to visit the river to understand the background and history of Bangkok. If you are on the ferry then you would see many hotels, monuments, temples and other boatmen who live on the river.

At night pay a visit to one of the several boat restaurant to enjoy a thai steamboat while relaxing in the chao phraya breeze.
