Chao Phraya River Tips (5)

International Standard Roads of Bangkok,

Favorite thing During our 5 days stay in Thailand , we could never find any traffic jam or road block. The reason, they have built Flyovers all over the city and highways. They are wide, well maintained and heavily policed. We found even the old city of Bangkok is having wide roads and very well maintained foot paths. No one brakes traffic rules unlike India. Their roads will put to shame our Indian leaders, who travel to Europe/USA to study their roads and traffic system , to be replicated in India. They must be having holidays there on tax payer's money. Please see the pictures and judge for yourself.

Road-based transport is the primary mode of travel in Bangkok. Due to the city's organic development, its streets do not follow an organized grid structure. Forty-eight major roads link the different areas of the city, branching into smaller streets and lanes (soi) which serve local neighborhoods. Eleven bridges over the Chao Phraya link the two sides of the city, while the Ratchadaphisek inner ring road encircles the inner city. Several roads linking Bangkok with neighbouring and further provinces are designated as national highways, including the primary routes Phahonyothin (route 1), Sukhumvit (route 3), and Phetkasem (route 4). The outer ring road, Kanchanaphisek (motorway route 9), runs through Bangkok's suburbs, linking with Nonthaburi, Pathum Thani and Samut Prakan, while the Bangkok–Chonburi Motorway (route 7) runs to the eastern seaboard province, passing Suvarnabhumi Airport on the way.

Fondest memory All the Flyovers are three tiered , having top speed of 80kms inside the city on third tier. All roads are very clean.

I love the Chao Phraya River.

Favorite thing I've travelled up and down it by public boat, hotel shuttle, party boat. I've stood on its banks. I've sat in restaurants gazing at the endless boats tearing up and down it. I've sat on my hotel balcony enjoying room service and staring into its murky depths. I love to see a busy river and I think a stretch of water makes any city a much more beautiful place.

chao parya river boat - from saphan taskin

Favorite thing I think you better explore this thru a river boat .

take the bts to saphan taskin
take the exit from saphan taskin
and then take the torusit boat from there - which is a hop on hop off boat running thru out the day.

you can get off at all these locations you have mentioned, as it serves various piers and i am very much sure that the ones you have mentioned are included in its stops.

definately china town and temples.

better take the bts to saphan taskin and from saphan taskin take the boat .

Fondest memory BTS

Boat boarding port

Favorite thing In a number of ports around the river should remember the departure port.
You can go to the wrong place.
