The majestic Chao Phraya River in Bangkok is very well known and is the dynamic pulse of life in the city. The river provides easy access to many parts of the city and some of the most luxurious hotels in Bangkok. The river is a constant hive of activity with all kinds of boats, from hotel shuttle boats to longtail boats for hire, to public ferries to giant really long garbage barges! Some of the best views in the city can be had from on or around the river, including the amazing Temple of Dawn from the river as well as the historic riverside shopping district. The temples that can be seen from the river look so majestic.
“The Chao Phraya River is the heart of Bangkok and the riverside one of its most charismatic areas from which you can explore the city from the water or watch the world go by on its riverbanks.”
