From Asok to Grand Palace

We plan to start our first full day in Bangkok with a trip to the Grand palace from our hotel (Rembrandt). This will be a thurs around 9-10am.

We were thinking about attempting the bus, but the journey time is quite long according to google maps (same with taxi)- I guess its because of all the rush hour traffic.

I read some nearly 10 year old posts suggested taking the BTS to Siam then getting a boat on the pier that goes all the way. Is this still correct? If so, which boat would I need?

When using the search function; use the drop down arrow to change the "sort by" from Relevance to Date.

This will result in the newest post being displayed first.

Better to go at 9AM, versus 10AM; the sooner the better to beat he tourists buses and crowds.
