Thailand - Bangkok - Chao Phraya River - The Bangkok Riverside Area

Bangkok - Chao Phraya River - The Bangkok Riverside Area

One of the most interesting and fascinating areas of Bangkok, the riverside area shows a constantly changing scene with taxi boats swiftly transporting passengers, teak and rice barges being towed through the area laden with cargo. Local trading boats moving anything and everything on the Chao Phraya River and klongs. All this set against a backdrop of glittering temples, colourful buildings and modern skyscrapers.

The Bangkok riverside area also contains some of Bangkok's most prestigious hotels, from The Oriental, Shangri-La, and the Sheraton to good value first class hotels like the Menam, well established before the real estate boom are also in this area.

Bangkok - Chao Phraya River - The Bangkok Riverside AreaClose by is Sanam Luang district which is the political area of Bangkok. Sanam Luang has many historic landmarks and buildings, including the Grand Palace. The area remains relatively free of modern architecture and gives a better feel for "old Bangkok."

Cruising along the river is one of the fastest way to get around the capital. Many of Bangkok's great hotels are close to passenger quay's where frequent and cheap water based transportation is available. The natural and obvious bonus of locating in this area being the river views.
