It was boring there is not much to see but some nice buildings.. We personally didn't like it so much as it was also raining a little and the boat people were very rude.

This river is linked to mei Kong river which is the longest river in Asia. There’s a story related to a dragon many years ago inside this river..

Go the the pier and get a ticket on the spot for a ride to the Palace Area. The boat will stop at a few places and you will get to see both sides of Bangkok. I was there in a low and rainy season,...More

There are plenty of highlights to see in Bangkok and the River is certainly one of them! Be sure to take a trip on one of the many boats and head from one end of the city to the other to get some great views...More

Oh my last trip to Thailand a decade ago I remember how peaceful riding the boats was compared to travelling by road. I guess now I compare it to travel by BTS. On this trip the boat was very full. The driver didn't do much...More

The Chao Phraya River was a highlight of our stay in Bangkok - a mini cruise down the river from the hotel and back was an excellent experience - highly recommended.

Do a river cruise! An extremely relaxing way to explore the city and see the beautiful buildings, temples and structures!

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
