Before Bangkok transformed into the mega-metropolis that it is today, the Chao Phraya river was actually one of the most popular ways to get around the city. The river is highly revered by locals because it provided livelihood for the people throughout history. Today traveling along the river by boat is an enjoyable experience that you must try at least once in your life, and sharing that boat ride with your Thai lady from Thaidatefinder.com will only add to the fun!
With the convenience of the BTS, MRT, and an endless supply of taxi cabs in this city, we often forget that taking a boat up and down the river can actually be an even more efficient way to get around. One thing is for certain, you won’t be stuck in Bangkok’s notorious traffic! Operating a regular boat service up and down the river, The Chao Phraya River Express can be likened to a bus on water, bringing you to many of the city’s major attractions.
Once you’re on the elongated boat, it’s quite pleasant to feel the wind toss your hair as your gently travel across the Chao Phraya river. Soon you realize that you’re on a journey to seeing Bangkok from an exciting and new new perspective with your Thai date. A sparkling Wat Arun built in the reign of King Narai in the mid 17th century greets you on the left-hand side, followed by another historical Ayutthaya temple Wat Rakhang which is popular with Thais who visit it to make merit on auspicious occasions.
When you reach Tewet pier, north of the Phra Arthit Pier, we suggest you get off the boat and take a look at what’s waiting for you in the water. A massive school of fish reside beneath the pier and they are more than happy to jump out for a piece of bread. It’s a startling sight to see so many fish emerge to the surface of the river for a bite to eat!
While you’re at Tewet pier, you can also take a tuk-tuk to other tourist sights such as Vimanmek Mansion and Wat Benjamabophit. The Ratchawong Pier also has a lot to offer you and your date on your river boat experience. From this pier you can walk along Ratchawong Road to Sampaeng Lane and Yaowarat Road to explore the beauty of Bangkok’s Chinatown.
