Explore Deeper Bangkok via “Long tail Boat”
Bangkok was known as ” Venice of the East” These days many of the canals (klongs) have been paved over to accommodate growing modernization and development. There is still, however, a handful of river networks snaking their way through the city. Check out Klong Saen Saep, accessible at the end of most major roads along Sukhuvit. To get to the riverboats you need to leave the comfort of BTS line (sky train) and head to the end of Thonglor, Ekkamai, Asoke, ect. From BTS station, grap a motorcycle taxi driver and tell the driver to get to the docks. Take the boat to the end of the line near Khao Sarn and enjoy a backdoor view of Bangkok not seen by those sticking with modern modes of transport. This way of the docks put you closer to favorite areas such as the Platinum Mall and Pantip in Pratunam.
