Chao Phraya Express Boat Service
Bangkok and the Chao Phraya River are as inseparable as all the other sights you can spot. Well, the river itself may not be a tourist attraction, not for most, for most it will be means of transport. But you should give the Chao Phraya a chance. To reach certain places across the river is sometimes not only faster, it also has a certain flair to join an express boat trip. You can perceive its environment much more relaxed, than for example with a taxi ride.
Cheap Public Transport
A ride on an express boat is cheap, depending on the route and the number of stations you want to go, a ticket costs between 10 Baht and 32 Baht if you take the public express boats. There is also an extra tourist express boat, there are tickets for single tickets (40 Baht) and day tickets (150 Baht).
There are 4 Public Lines of Express Boats which are simply marked: with flags. 1) Boats flying the orange flag on the route: Nonthaburi - Wat Rajsinkorn --- 2) Boats with yellow flags driving on the route: Nonthaburi - Sathorn --- 3) Boats with green flag driving on the Green Flag Route: Pakkret - Nonthaburi - Sathorn --- and 4) boats WITHOUT flag relieve the route Nonthaburi - Wat Rajsinkorn at certain peak times. A fifth line is intended for tourists, the blue line runs between the stations Phra Arthit and Sathorn (Taksin).
In addition to the express boats, there are more boats that operate on the Chao Phraya. While the Express boats depart various stations on certain lines, there are more boats on many piers. On the one hand, numerous ferries go around the shores to change. In addition, there are still longtail boats, but rather used for tourist trips.
