Chao Phraya Express Boat

Discover Bangkok from a whole new perspective with the Chao Phraya Express Boat as your cruise along the Chao Phraya River from pier to pier.

Many of Bangkok’s most famous attractions such as Wat Arun (Temple of Dawn), and the great Reclining Buddha at Wat Pho are situated along the 21 kilometer long river.

Much of Thai history and culture can be traced along the bands of the Chao Phraya River.

Travel along the Chao Phraya River

The Chao Phraya Express Boat stops at 8 piers, starting from the Central pier which is located adjacent to Saphan Taksin BTS skytrain station. Tickets can be purchased directly at the BTS station or at the pier.

The Chao Phraya river makes a great way to get around since many of the major tourist sites are easily accessible from there.

The Chao Phraya Express Boat offers daily tourist and regular trips to a cheap price and is the ideal method to explore Bangkok and its treasures in a different way.

If you are planning to spend the whole afternoon exploring the Chao Phraya, it is recommended to get the one-day pass which only costs 100 Baht for unlimited boat rides.

The boats and their colors

Don’t get them mixed up: there are four different lines of the Chao Phraya Express Boat, each marked with a colored flag.

The website of the Chao Phraya Express Boat offers a nice and clear plan of the fares, routes, times and other specific information.
