Chao Phraya Express Boat


There are many companies doing business on the Chao Phraya River, but the most popular so much for visitors in Bangkok is the Chao Phraya Express Boats (Thai's wording: Ruaa-Duan-Chao-Phra-Ya). They have 4 styles of services: (See Styles) NO Flag--get on and get off every piers, Orange Flag--get on and get off some piers that stop less than No Flag, Yellow Flag--get on and get off at destinations, for this style, the Yellow flag is the fastest but most money; therefore, before ticketing ask collector first (See Boat Fares) for the last style is Green Flag--get on and get off from Pakkret (N33) passing through Nonthaburi (N30), The Wet (N15), Tha Chang (N9) and any more. Actually, Nonthaburi--Pibul 3 Pier (N30) is a hub of all style boats as same as Central Pier {Sathon-Saphan Taksin (BTS S6 Station)}. They are cruising from neighboring district, Pakkret (N33), Muang Nonthaburi-- Nonthaburi province (N30), till Sathorn or Silom (Central Pier), in Bangkok. Getting on boat at Banglumpu--Phra Arthit Pier (N13) and then get off Tha Chang Pier (N9) for traveling to Grand Palace is the first step to experience this service (See Boat Pier). If you stay around Banglampoo area, ridiculously, we thought you should take a walk worthy. See Rattanakosin Map.

Thais call "WIN" (Thai wording: translates from English--"be the winner in contest or competition~") for those whose drivers turn on serviced motorbike' engines reaching wherever is. As we've mentioned above, as the meaning of word "WIN", the motor bikers are worried about their time to speed and reached the destination by competition with others, so they are not mind though you will always remind them that you are driving so fast!!. The last answer of Thais, mostly don't mind about their safe, they're so worried about the time hanging with traffic ways. It's the alternatively decision for you as we've been proud to attention before choosing. Trying, it's amazing.
It's time for you to choose that vehicles are suitable and worth for your destination. Think before making an appointment that Bangkok's one of the traffic jam city. Planning your journey better than wasting your time on the road or loosing your mind in the city.


We wish you enjoying pleasant and amazing travelling in Thailand.
