The easiest way to get around the river hop off hop on anytime you want all day long. Is a must do while in Bangkok, take a ride and relax. Explore the city of Bangkok from the riverside, surely it has a different view.

Taking the boat to visit the holy trinity (Grand Palace, Wat Pho and Wat Arun) is a truly pleasurable experience. Connection is smooth from the Saphan Taksin BTS station to the cruise pier. The ship can get really crowded in the morning.

Chinatown / Yaowarat
Better known as 'Yaowarat' among locals, Chinatown is
Bangkok's bustling district that never sleeps. During
the day, the main street and its small alleyways are
filled with a vibrant mix of colours, scents and
flavours coming from the roadside restaurants and
all-day markets. The real action, however, happens
after sunset. Surrounded by neon lights, Thais and
tourists alike flock here around dinnertime to feast
