Beware the tourist boat operators that promise fast express boats, but put you on slow boats with numerous other people. Just do the 15 baht ferry. You will get to the same place much quicker.

What a force of culture and commerce! I could spend days traversing this RIO. Love the long boats (make sure you try one)., but the ferry works well too! Amazing what you see when you leave Terra Firma.

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
