I returned to Bangkok, Thailand recently as a stop over on my way to Africa, and my wife joined me for the four days as we explored more of this city that we both love. Each day that we went out, we seemed to find ourselves on a ferry on the Chao Phraya River.
The river is really an important part of life in Bangkok and acts as a highway that is always a hive of activity. Riding the ferries along the river is not only cheap and a great way to avoid the city’s chaotic traffic, it’s also a great way to see some of Bangkok’s most beautiful and interesting sights.
Here are some of the photos that I took on the Chao Phraya River ferries on my recent trip, along with a couple of older ones from last year’s visit.
Have you been to Bangkok? Did you spend much time on the Chao Phraya River?
