Chao Phraya River

The Life Essence of Bangkok!

Termed by King Rama the First, the Chao Phraya River captures the very essence of Bangkok. Today it showcases a juxtaposition of many fascinating aspects of the Thai community.

Take in the Sights of the River Aboard a Vessel

The best way to take in all the exotic sights that are centred around the river such as the magnificent temples is to book yourself on either a dinner cruise. Or an afternoon session on an antique rice barge for the ultimate experience!

Walk Along the Phra Arthit Road

Located parallelly to the river, the Phra Arthit Road stretches from Thammasat University and Phra Sumen Fort. It can be easily reached from many a Bangkok resort including the likes of Anantara Riverside Bangkok Resort with ease. Consider visiting the spot towards the evening as the area takes on a lively carnival-like air.

Take in the Pak Khlong Flower Market

Awash in a riot of colour, the Pak Khlong Flower Market is one of the most pleasing spots to visit during an early morning. Here you will be able to find the freshest flowers, vegetables, and fruits for fantastic wholesale prices!
