If you're the people who take the BTS, go to the last station, Saphan Taksin and from there you have many choices. Some people like the tourist boat but it's not my favourite because stops at the same piers that the express boat and also it's so difficult to understand what the guide is saying, so you have to pay 100 bath when easily you can pay only 18 bath going by express boat (with yellow flag) and is very easy to know in which pier you have to disembark by looking a map if you want to go to the temples; you'll see, when you back, you can take even the blue boat and pay only 9 bath, just that it stops every pier.
I forgot to say that the ticket bought to go by tourist boat is a one-day pass ticket, for one day unlimited trips, not only in the tourist boat but in the express boat (same company).
