River cruises are everywhere, we jumped in a tuk tuk and he drove us to the riverside we picked up a boat which took us on a long tour which ended at the grand palace. We past the floating markets, fish market and the views are amazing of the city.

Avoid Wat Arun for starting Longtail-Klong-Tour. High prices and unfair handling, as our tour was not the agreed route or duration. There is one dominant elderly lady managing this small-boat-pier at beautiful Wat-Arun and she is dishonest, deciding herself where her guests are heading and it is a total rip-off. Apart from that, of course the captain did not want to understand us on our private little journey.

I have taken a boat on this river many times. It is without doubt one of the best ways to see Bangkok both by day and by night. You avoid the traffic jams you encounter if taking a taxi or tuk tuk. You can sit back (if you manage to get a seat) and enjoy the sites as you are taken up (or down) the river. The Orange boat is the best one to take to save money. I thing the fare was under 20 Baht for a very long ride. The the tourist boat isn't too expensive if you want to guarantee to get a seat and not wait in such a long queue.

They originally wanted to charge us 3000 baht which we felt was well over priced. We got them down to 1800 but on leaving the boat at a different port than we set off, the man at that port was selling the boat trip for 400 baht! Haggle hard. It’s worth doing but you’re likely to get a little wet and there isn’t a huge amount to see, it’s a little run down and smelly.

It's easy to get around the river but there is alot of litter in the water and it's really choppy at times which is quite scary on a longtail.
