The Chao Phraya River is the lifeline of Bangkok. It is the main waterway of the city. In the north, it eventually merges with the Mekong. In Bangkok, its shores are lined with stilt houses, some inhabited for generations. In other areas, its banks are lined with hotels and condominiums. Ferries, longboats and an assortment of other vessels ply the water serving natives and visitors alike.
