The Chao Phraya river runs through the heart of Bangkok and is a hive of activity. The most common sight is probably the famous long-tail boat. They chug up and down the river all day carrying tourists from one spot to another. We took a ride in one around the canals of Bangkok and I have to say it was a fantastic experience. The serenity of this scene does no justice to the uncomfortable ride you get with these things! But despite their bumpy nature it was definitely one of the highlights of our two weeks in Thailand.
Have you ever taken a ride in a long-tail boat? Where did you do it? And more importantly, did you enjoy it?! Please get in touch and let me know!
