Fast, cheap, no traffic delay and not hot even in the afternoon. Can stop near an MRT (subway) station such as Kamphaeng Phet. Stepping on and off the boat is not for someone with knee or leg problems. You have to be fast and can...More

The small canal runs through the heart of Bangkok and is an important part of the Thai capital. Taking the boat is a good experience to see the daily life of Bangkok residents.

The boat doesn’t stop very long to pick up passengers. As soon as it is close enough to where you are standing, hop in and find your seat or you’ll be SOL. If you sit at the side, pull the plastic shade, so you won’t...More

Using the waterways is an extremely cheap and atmospheric way to get around Bangkok. You need to be fairly secure of your footing getting on an off, but this pair of 70+ had no problems and felt like locals. Avoid peak hours though if you...More
