Bangkok River  (10 Photos)

The Chao Phraya River winds lazily through Bangkok, giving the areas built up along the chocolate brown water a much more laid-back feel than the modern areas of skyscrapers, malls, and Sky Trains. Try taking a Chao Phraya River taxi as a day trip instead of a tuk tuk or regular metered taxi. I promise you, a ride in one of the huge, spluttering long-tail boats is an experience you won’t soon forget. Most of the famous temples and historical sites in Bangkok are located along the river, so the Chao Phraya River taxi really is the most fun (and convenient) way to see some of Bangkok’s top tourist sites.
