  • Rivers often serve as pulsating arteries of big cities, bringing moisture to the human world, freshness, and life itself. And vbirajushhimi all the filth, dirt and debris clearing big city. And Chao Phraya may appear before us reflect the life of the modern Bangkok, with all its glamour and novomodnostju, on the one hand, and drjahlostju and dremuchestju on the other. Here coexist stylized antique teak barges and pleasure boats eulogized on the go really old ships to transport coal, elegant yachts and fragile fishing vessels, speedboats and small traditional boats, more resembling a trough. Here the surface muddy water in the mornings, teeming with fish, in vyprygivajushhej of the canals lurk giant water lizards, and ripe mangoes hang at arm's length from a passing speed boat. Here the key beats life. Who hasn't tried a couple of times on different courts on the Chao Phraya, the missed opportunity to understand the soul of Bangkok.
