The royal barges take to the water usually once or a few times a year on special occasions. Hundreds of men will row these amazing royal boats across the Chao Phraya. Unfortunately, many of us are not lucky enough to be in Bangkok for this occasion. Otherwise, you can come here on the other side of the Chao Phraya near the Saphan Phra bridge. It's a small museum,but they do show video of the boats in action.

You can combine this with a klong tour
