Quick and efficient - would only recommend more signage to be able to know where to go. We had to revert back across the river to get to the right stop after it was changed 6 months ago but no communication anywhere to say so.
Was helped by a friendly vendor.

This is a fun activity for all ages. Kids will especially love feeding the fish. Would highly recommend at least once.

I loved it. Try to take a normal ferry and ho on the river. A ticket cost around 20-30 baht. Along the river you have a awesome view to more or less the whole city. Remember: the river is a fake river. on of the old kings changed the direction of the river. Just a note on the side.

The huge river was made per man for transportation
A lot of boats still pass at this river
You can catch the boatbus to get everywhere on the river

This vast river is the main artery of Bangkok, full of river cruises, restaurant boats, river taxis and the ever present tugs, pulling up to 3 heavily laden barges from upstream in Ayutthaya and elsewhere en route. Whether by day or night, it is always alive with river traffic, and is a definite ' must-see' when in Bangkok.
