A canal boat service runs a significant length of Khlong Saen Saep which provides a very convenient and effective way to get to anywhere adjacent to the canal: in particular, it is well suited to the Pratunam area. We also used it to travel the full distance west possible to Phanfa Bridge which is great to access the eastern Rattanosokin area.

Prices are dirt cheap; I think it was B13 from Petchaburi to Phanfa: you have to change boats at Pratunam which is a pretty seamless issue. Getting in and out requires a bit of concentration as their are moving parts to contend with.

Tickets are bought on the boat.

Do it at least once - it is a fun experience.

The Klong Boats are a great way of getting around areas of Bangkok and avoiding the traffic. Again hop off at any of the stops and explore you'll discover great things on the way.

Really a remarkable experience. we did not have to have a pre-booking, just bought tickets when we reached to the boat. and had plenty of seats for us. boat riders ensure all of us safety, coz there were several kids in the boat. we really enjoyed the trip specially my kids. never had this type of experience before in their life. worth tour for what we spent for the tickets. Thanks for the all crew.

I read somewhere someone commented that it is "Dirty and Dangerous".

Well I have to disagree.

I find it quite efficient, fast and reliable service. The boats are clean and well maintained.

The only "dirty" part that I can think of maybe the canal water but then every boat has the transparent plastic that you can raised or lowered to avoid any water splashes.

The "dangerous" part maybe during the embarking and disembarking if one is impatient i.e. not waiting for the boat to be completely stopped. Otherwise, the rides/trips are in canals therefore hardly any waves or to experience motion sickness.

There is no traffic woes/jam.
Not forgetting the fare is only 9 bhat(!!).

My review above is basis my stay at Prince Palace Hotel i.e. taking the water taxis from Bobae tower pier to/from Pratunam Pier (Central world, Siam Paragon) and also to Ho Chang Pier (to MBK Mall)
