Go on a boat tour! Chao praya river is a river that flows to bangkok. Yes the water is not clean but alongside you will see beautiful architectures. I paid 220 for boat riding.

As a tourist attraction, Chao Phraya River is not much. This “attraction” warrants my high rating because of its significance to Thailand (which Thais have never referred to as Siam), its culture, and food production/transportation. At the confluence of the Pa Sak and Lop Buri...More
