Chao Phraya

4.4/5
2,721 Reviews
River
The Chao Phraya River is known as the “Mother River” in Thailand and is also called the “Venice of the East”. Spanning a total of 1,352 kilometers, the Chao Phraya River runs through the southeastern part of Thailand and flows through the Bangkok city. It plays an important role in urban transport and the lives of the shore residents. The water transport on the Chao Phraya River is very convenient. The Chao Phraya Express Boat is one of the main domestic transport vehicles in the daily lives of Bangkok citizens. It is also a frequent means of transport for tourists. Sitting on a boat and watching the scenery on both sides of the river is pleasant, while taking a night tour of the Chao Phraya River is both romantic and comfortable. These two are definitely worth experiencing.
