Chaophraya River Scenes

Thai Flag

Saphan Taksin is the major ferry terminal on the Chaophraya River, hosting commuter, hotel, and even shopping mall ferries. All these different ferries have their own boarding point around the bridge.

I didn't pay too much attention on what route I needed to take, so I was duped to pay 40 baht for the for the express tourist boat. Given it was only a little more than USD 1, I didn't get too upset over paying several times more than the cheapest boat.

Wat Arun

With a bit of searching, I found this map of the various ferry lines. The grey one is the slowest, stopping at all piers.

The piers are a bit hazardous to use when crowded. This one consists of just this floating platform with no safety barriers on the river side. Watch your step!
