After we introduce you about bus in Bangkok in our last post. This time, is, Boat. Not all people in bangkok has ever get on the Boat. However, tourists are one of the heavy user of Thai Chaopaya Ferry.
Update : Before talking about Cross River Ferry, you may just thinking about how to ride a boat for your trips.
Actually there are a tourist boat from here to major riverside tourist spot such wat aroon (temple of the dawn).
The most important things i,s please keep in mind, the boat, generally, operate only day times. There are only few exceptional in night for Asiatique Route. Because it more dangerous in the night or during the rain, the boat operation will be halted.
Tips: There are two kinds of boat one is generally boat which for every day commute. I recommend to use the Tourist Boat because, it has more space and view for your selfie and photograph. If you still don't understand, please this video, might help to see the clear picture.
If you stay, for example, IBIS riverside, you can walk only 2-3 mins to ferry to cross to tasking pier.
Actually there are many kinds of canal, river boat trips you may try. But i recommend that start with chaophraya river might be a good starting point
The fare is very cheap 3-10 bath per ride depend on pier but most are only 3 baht
The way to terminal sometime is quite secret but not hard to find.
For this pier at Sathon cost only 3 baht
You have to wait at the pier not wait at the dock.Because dock has a weight limit.
If you stayed at IBIS HOTEL RIVERSIDE you can use this pier to go to BTS Taksin Station.
