The Chao Phraya River is no doubt the most important river in Thailand. It consists of tributaries that spread north, south, east and west of Thailand. Today, the river also represents a means of transportation and a way of life for communities of boat dwellers, with many modern and historical sites also to be seen along the bank. Cruise along the water and visit Pak Klong Talad, the biggest flower market in Bangkok. Make a stop at the many temples and churches and marvel at the architecture. Feeling hungry? Chinatown is nearby, offering a wide variety of savoury and sweet Thai and Chinese treats. For the art lovers, there are numerous museums along the river with rotating installations.
