Sometimes very crowded, recomment boarding on the end stations on Chao Phraya to get a seat with good sight. Also recommended transport to major attractions as Wat Arun, Grand Palace, Wat Pho etc. Avoid the relatively expensive tourist boats that goes the same or similar...More

In Bangkok if you possibly can both stay near the river and use the express boat. It's up to ten degrees cooler near the water, it's a bustling working waterway and a fabulous way to get to or just see many of the best sites...More

Best way to get around on the water. Some very key locations throughout Bangkok are best accessed via water. get yourself a map so you can plan accordingly

The Chao Phraya boats are a great way to get around in the city. They can drop you off at some popular site seeing places. And unlike the Get On/Get Off Tourist Boats that cost about $5 per day, these cost about 15 cents each...More

I used all day tickets in combination with skytrain on several days. Much easier to access many sites and monuments from this way than the street. Excellent boats & helpful staff.

Nice way to get around and see some of the main attractions. It costs only 150 baht for unlimited use during 1 day. You can buy tickets on board and it's a good way to avoid Bangkok traffic.

We had enjoyed our boat ride from sanpaktaksin to Wat Arun , It was cheap and it was an amazing ride to see Bangkok around the river banks

Traffic in Bangkok is horrible. We got into the boat, enjoyed the scene of BKK along theChaophraya River, and stopped by at several interesting places, and ended at the BTS station to get back to our hotel. We wish we could have more time enjoying...More

Ideal for budget conscious and first-time travelers. For only 180 baht per person (per day basis) enjoy the unlimited "hop on and hop off the boat" of your preferred destination with your friends, families or special someone. It comes with a blue mini tour booklet...More

Smart but crowded, be careful not to mistake the express boat with the tourists boat, they stop at the same place and local ticket sellers try to mismatch them as ordinary ticket. Look for the orange (flag) line boat not the blue line, it is...More

Chinatown / Yaowarat
Better known as 'Yaowarat' among locals, Chinatown is
Bangkok's bustling district that never sleeps. During
the day, the main street and its small alleyways are
filled with a vibrant mix of colours, scents and
flavours coming from the roadside restaurants and
all-day markets. The real action, however, happens
after sunset. Surrounded by neon lights, Thais and
tourists alike flock here around dinnertime to feast

Hi Brisbane P, Definitely by taxi. Express boat would be very stressful as it is a commuter service, meaning mostly crowded and only hesitates at stops.

It is not a tour. It is public transportation along the river. See my TA review for information concerning the stopspiers for the Grand Palace, Wat Arun, Chinatown & more
