Bangkok road traffic is very crowded, in addition to the subway and light rail as you know, in fact, it is also a very fast way to take a boat on the canal. And the tickets are class. The farther the fare goes, the more expensive it is. In fact, they are not too expensive, but they are very fast, faster than the cars on the road.
There are many traffic boats on the Mekonan River in Bangkok. They are not only the patents of tourists, but also the important means of transportation for local people. The boats on the canal are cheap, convenient and beautiful. There is a station at each section. Buying good tickets at the station is like waiting for a bus. You must try it.
The Bangkok Canal runs through the city. The river is very wide. There are ferry boats coming and going. The scenery is very good.
After a study of the site map, I was surprised to find that it was just across the whole business district, and the dock landed (11B/2.5 yuan) was very convenient. In about 10 minutes, a willow-shaped wooden boat arrived, carrying 30,40 people. Because the river is fairly straight and the boatman is already familiar with it, the boat is very fast, splashing a lot of waves all the way, which can pull up the rain curtain to cover it. The crew walks up and down the outside pedal to sell tickets and observe the voyage (also by paying consciously). Many wooden boats shuttle back and forth, with many passengers coming and going from each dock along the way.
Dannen Shaduo Water Fair is Thailand's former water market, which is a place closely related to the lives of local residents. In the bazaar, small boats selling goods interlace on the canal, and the residential houses of the watery residents along the river bank constitute a deeply affectionate and typical impression of Bangkok.
