"Take the water taxi from Tha..." Boat Trips, Ferry Rides and River Cruises Tip by j-san


Take the water taxi from Tha Chang (near the Wat Phra Kaew) up the river to Bang Yai.
You will see the way people live on the river. I really enjoyed the part closer to Bang Yai. The people were relaxing in the houses, buying snacks from their door steps, children splashing about and waving. You would stop right at the door of someones open house and the dog would be there barking the school kid off to school etc. Loved it!

Address: Many to choose from in Bangkok.
Directions: It was a real pain to find the water taxi as at the Tha Chang (pier) you are stopped at the gates by touts and tour group guides offering you 600Baht tours etc. (10times the price of the ordinary wate
othercontact: See my Travelogue for more pics!
