This was our second time on the river. More than wonderful! The sights were many and varied. We took an offshoot into a canal where tings have not changed for 200 years in some places. It was an excellent way to see authenticity out of the way of the touristy parts. We also took pleasure in buying wares from two of the boats that approached ours. It was a lovely time spent on the river. I would do it again.

Handy river for getting around Bangkok. Also nice to sit by and watch the river shuttles, long tail boats and barges go about their busy day.

The river that runs straight to Bangkok. Filled with action. Cross it, to see Wat Arun or watch long tail boats and tugboat barges sail by.

You won't find a relax trip here, the amount of boats, the smell of water.. The trash, dead fishes on water it will make you regret... We made a trip around 3 hours and the time on boat was disgusting..
