The boat doesn’t stop very long to pick up passengers. As soon as it is close enough to where you are standing, hop in and find your seat or you’ll be SOL. If you sit at the side, pull the plastic shade, so you won’t...More

Using the waterways is an extremely cheap and atmospheric way to get around Bangkok. You need to be fairly secure of your footing getting on an off, but this pair of 70+ had no problems and felt like locals. Avoid peak hours though if you...More

probably one of the cheapest and most fun is by boat on the canal. It works just like BTS/MRT with various stops depending on which boat you take: Golden Mount Line or Nida Line. Payment will be made while the boat is going to the...More

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

Great way to get around Bangkok. They start very early and finish around 20.30, a little earlier finish at weekend. Boats are every few minutes. It is insanely busy at peak hours. Very cheap e.g. from Pratanum pier (this is the pier where you have...More

This is a very interesting trip to see a whole new universe of life along the side of the Klong. Exploring Bangkok from the 'inside' by boat can be a lot of fun. Large boats serve as transport to office goers, smartly turned out, more...More
