Bangkok Riverside

Bangkok Area Guides

The Chao Phraya is the main artery of the city, pumping life into Bangkok. Here the scene is constantly changing with water- taxis, dinner cruises, ferries and rice barges shuttling to and fro and from dusk till dawn there is a strong sense of movement and life.

Here, we have Bangkok at its best comprising five-star hotels and temples with authentic Thailand traits, as well as markets, street -food vendors and hawkers. A day on the riverside can be spent on land or off, exploring the dense of warren of sois by foot eventually working your way up to Chinatown or embarking on a meandering adventure through old-Bangkok on a khlong (canal) tour. Whatever your choice of activity it will surely be a memory you won’t forget in a hurry.
