Bangkok Riverside Attractions
Venice of the East
Bangkok is the capital of Thailand, which is one of the busiest tourist destinations in the East. As there are many things to do around Bangkok, visitors can choose from shopping to relaxing by the riverside of Bangkok. No trip to Bangkok is complete without visiting and/or cruising along the majestic Chao Phraya River, that’s complete with local attractions. The banks of the river are bursting with so much activity that if you venture out here, the day would fly by in a few seconds.
There are a wide range of hotels to choose from that are located by the river, such as AVANI Riverside Bangkok Hotel, where guests can choose to stay in. The activities on the Bangkok riverside mostly involve the water itself, however, there are other activities around here that often interest tourists. The Grand Palace and Wat Phra Keaw is one such attraction, which is regarded as the most beautiful and the most visited place in Bangkok. This is the palace and the temple within. Wat Arun is an essential on any sightseeing trip along the Chao Phraya River. It should be noted that Wat Arun is one of Thailand’s most iconic temples, and can only be accessed by boat.
Bangkok river cruises are a key attraction in the area and are quite popular with the tourists visiting Thailand. Chao Phraya is regarded as the artery of life in Bangkok and the best way to explore this is to hop on a private cruise. There are a number of cruises which visitors can choose from.
Thonburi canals are a must see to experience the old Siamese life where visitors can explore the river on a traditional long tail boat. These are commuter boats that allow tourists to get a firsthand experience of the old Bangkok city.
