I think this offers a great means to see Bangkok's temples from a different vantage point. Try to take a night cruise to see the templaes lit up.

It's cool to travel by boat in Bangkok and worth doing at least once. You get to see some of the sights along the river and the various boats are interesting. Depends on where you're going, taxi or tuk tuk may be cheaper though, with...More

Chao Phraya is the lifeblood of Bangkok. Now that most of the streets are busy and crowded, this is fastest way to go to Old Bangkok (Grand Palace and other Temples). There are a lot of hotel that maximizes the view of the river. Normally,...More

The river in Bangkok is never peaceful be it with barges, water taxis, tourist boats or long boats. It is really nice to walk along in the evening and there are various bars and restaurants. It is also interesting in the day.

We took a boat along the river to get to our next destination and thoroughly enjoyed it. The river is a main highway in Bangkok, one that I would encourage every tourist to use as it makes sightseeing so much quicker, easier and comfortable.

Amazing river with so much to see on both sides and up the channels. Was really a great experience and would definitely do it again next time I go to Bangkok.

Cruising the river is always fun. Certainly beats being in traffic. Can be a little rough at times (not bad) and the long boats can get a little crowded but it is worth it.

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
