Today’s travel photo is of a long tail boat docked at Tha Chang Pier on the Chao Phraya River in Bangkok, Thailand. This pier is one of the most popular ferry stops on the river for travellers as it is where you hop off to visit the Grand Palace. I took this photo during one of my regular ferry rides along the river during my most recent visit to Bangkok. Long tail boats like the one in this photo can be hired to take you pretty much anywhere, including private tours of Bangkok’s canals and floating markets. They are basically a taxi on water. If you want to hire a long tail boat, always agree on a price and the specific destination before you accept the ride.
