After we understood that walking in Bangkok is really not an option, we found out about this ferry. It’s fun to sit next to the locals. Wobbly ride, so hang tight and don’t open your mouth because of the splashing water (which doesn’t look to...More

Got on at the pier closest to Ratchatewi and got of at Phan fa bridge - 9 Bht ride as opposed to the all day tour of 200Bht. Take a map and visit the forts, museum, golden mount etc etc all close by.

Yes it's quick and somewhat easy when you find the pier, but the Saen Saep canal is an open sewer. It smells and the water splashes on you. You need to consider your health and take other transport to the Grand Palace. A better method...More

Fast - there's no mucking around, the boat arrive, everyone jumps onboard (YUP, really 'jump' as there's always a gap between the boat and the boarding place). The boat pretty much started when people were still trying to get on! My first boarding experience was...More

If you are staying within easy reach of this canal, it is really the best option for getting into the city to see some of the main sights. We used it twice from Phetchaburi pier to Phanfa (by the Golden Mountain) took about 20 minutes...More

Take some of Asia’s biggest malls, hundreds of
street-side vendors and a dozen of posh hotels and
you’ll have Siam - Bangkok’s commercial district that
will make any shopper’s heart beat faster. From cheap
electronics and wholesale goods in MBK to designer
handbags in Siam Paragon, you’re almost guaranteed to
find what you’re looking for in one of Siam’s many
malls. Take a break from the commercial craze and
