The Chao Phraya River & Bangkok's Canals (Khlongs) Nineteenth-century Bangkok was laced with canals, giving the capital the designation' Venice of the East'. Surviving canals, and the Chao Phraya River provide memorable vignettes of traditional waterborne way-of-life that has remained essentially unchanged over the centuries.
The river and canals may be conveniently explored by chartered boat from Tha Chang (Tel: 0-2225-6179, 0-2623-6169), a pier near the Grand Palace, or Tha Si Phraya (Tel: 0-2235-3108) near the River City Shopping Complex. Tourists can also book such a tour through travel agents.
Dinner Cruise Riverine Bangkok offers some of the capital's most arresting sights, particularly at night when the weather is cooler and light reflections bestow the Chao Phraya River with flickering magic and romance.
