The Chao Phraya River is known as the “Mother River” in Thailand and is also called the “Venice of the East”. Spanning a total of 1,352 kilometers, the Chao Phraya River runs through the southeastern part of Thailand and flows through the Bangkok city. It plays an important role in urban transport and the lives of the shore residents. The water transport on the Chao Phraya River is very convenient. The Chao Phraya Express Boat is one of the main domestic transport vehicles in the daily lives of Bangkok citizens. It is also a frequent means of transport for tourists. Sitting on a boat and watching the scenery on both sides of the river is pleasant, while taking a night tour of the Chao Phraya River is both romantic and comfortable. These two are definitely worth experiencing.
On Google Maps, the river that cuts through Bangkok and divides Bangkok into East and west parts is called the Chao Pai Ye River, which is also called the Mekong River by Chinese. This river is the mother river of Thailand and is very important to Thai people. In the Mekong River cruise boat tour, in addition to the normal ticket, the boatman will give each passenger a bunch of flowers, need to pay tips. Visitors who are willing to throw bread and fish on the tour also need to buy from the boat owner. Generally, if there are rivers in sightseeing cities, there will be boat tours. Let's have a tour here. By the way, look at the Grand Palace, Jade Buddha Temple and other scenic spots from another angle.
The Mekonan River is also a must-hit scenic spot in Bangkok, where all the major must-visit scenic spots are gathered on both sides. During the day Bangkok is so hot that a night tour of the Mekong River is a good choice. There are many prices for night cruises on the Mekong River. There are more than one boat for each price. Of course, the more expensive the boat is, the more luxurious it is. The more expensive it is, the earlier it will be. Each boat has different characteristics. Choose it according to your own needs. I was aboard the Bran Flower, at River City Bangkok, and got on board at Pier 1. When the tickets are changed, the seats are arranged. It's OK to get on the boat at the right time. You don't have to wait there. There are too many people. The boat has three floors. The visitors are on the third floor. The two floors below seem to be open to local people. The Bran Flower is the only one performed by a demon. There are three. And singers keep singing. There will be a buffet on it. There are not many kinds of things. They can be satiated and have a general taste. The whole tour lasts about two hours, and you can see the Grand Palace and the Zheng Wang Temple. It's pleasant to watch the night scenery with the breeze blowing. But to tell you the truth, the night scenery is not as beautiful as the daytime scenery. You can take a boat tour in the daytime and enjoy the daytime scenery of the Meinan River with 15 baht.
great way to get around the city! get a hop on hop off ferry pass. great deal!
The water traffic on the Mekong River is very convenient. The Chaobaiye Express is also one of the main domestic means of transportation for Bangkok citizens'daily life, and also a means of transportation frequently used by tourists. It's not only cheap, but also can take you to some of Bangkok's main attractions. During the daytime, there is a water market on the Mekong River, where transport ships come and go. As the sky darkened, the lights along the river lit up, and tourist boats shuttling the river set sail, the Mekong River showed another unused style. We chose the Princess, a cruise ship with a journey of about 2 hours and a cost of about 200 yuan per capita. Sitting on a luxury cruise ship, as the hull sways on the river, it feels like a royal cruise. Along the way, there will be many important scenic spots, all of which are illuminated by night lights and have the novelty of first sight. The ship also arranged a rich candlelight dinner, bands and Thai classic dance hospitality oh.

Night trips to the Mekong River are a good experience. On board the RiverCity, the table number label will be attached before boarding, because dinner on the ship is a buffet. Before boarding, there will be a group of beautiful women in traditional Thai costumes who will take photos with the tourists one by one, and give each visitor another flower. The purpose of the group photo is to wash out the photos on board and then install a photo frame to see if tourists buy them. If they need to buy, they will pay 250 baht. If you don't want it, you won't be forced to buy it. There are so many people on board that we have to queue up for buffet. There are many kinds of buffet dinner, as well as many seafood, and the instant noodles are delicious. While the boat is sailing, there will be singing and dancing performances, which are available in all languages, Thai, Chinese, English, Japanese songs, and Thai instrument solos. Along with the music, it's a good experience to enjoy the Mekong River at night, blowing the cool sea breeze and eating authentic Thai food. Along the way, you can see such scenic spots as Zheng Wang Temple, Grand Palace and Jiefang Bridge. In the later period, the crew also sang and danced with the tourists, and everyone had a good time. Our trip is from 7:00 p.m. to 9:10 p.m. It's a pleasant and relaxing journey. It's a good experience.
Value for money! The cruise boat takes two hours and boards at 7:00 p.m. from the river city pier. There are Thai and international catering self-help. There are bands on the boat. The waiters bring their own singing and dancing modes. The music can also dance at any time with dishes on their hands. The night on both sides is good. Along with the evening breeze, you can see Zheng Wang Temple, Grand Palace, Rama Bridge, Ferris Wheel and some hotels, waterfront restaurants all the way.
With a long-tailed boat, we got on board and began to visit the scenery on both sides of the Mekong River. As the mother river running through Thailand, there are many famous Thai scenic spots on both sides of the Mekonan River, such as Jade Buddha Temple, Grand Palace, Zheng Wang Pagoda and so on. The only remaining water dwelling is a unique view on the Mekong River. It is a simple wooden house supported by thin wooden columns, which still bears the mark of the water after high tide and looks dangerous.
