"Chao Phraya River Express boats" Bangkok Transportation Tip by jrs1234

Bangkok Transportation: 1,184 reviews and 1,466 photos

  Entrance to a riverboat pier
by jrs1234

Try a trip on the river on the cheap Chao Phraya River Express boat. But watch your step as you get on and off! You'll get some excellent views of the city, and it can be much faster than travelling by road, if it's taking you in the direction you want to go. The photo is of the street side of one of the stops, this is what you need to look out for. It stops usefully close to a Skytrain station, too, at Sathorn pier - useful for getting to or from the Patpong / Siam Square / Sukhumvit areas of the city.
