    River in boats want to go to the Pier near the Khao San Road, Hua lamphong railway station to dock near the tuk-tuk drivers to them. Big Harbor, not arrived at a small Pier, going in a wooden boat. Thought the boat I thought that rates are high at 1,500 baht, but was of no avail. Large ships at the wharf said the people of GBIF as wearing ship arrived at the dock, charge 50 baht in the two rates are per person 40 baht. Tuk-tuk and darkness boats (wooden small boat), adhesions, so watch out.

    From Khao San road to saphan Taksin went in the liner. There was over 15 after landing near Khao San Road, trying to buy tickets, but foreign, free tickets for guided. When you purchase a ticket, please tell only one way. It is only 14 baht. Takes about 20 minutes, cool, short cruise trip.

Where to stay in Bangkok

As a commercial, cultural, and tourist center, Bangkok offers a great diversity of accommodations. For long established and chain hotels, try Sukhumvit Road and the areas surrounding the central Siam Square, where budget and luxury rooms are available in abundance. If you are looking for the backpacker zone, head to Khaosan Road, where you'll find a wealth of inexpensive, simple accommodations surrounded by businesses tailored to traveler's needs. Consider staying at a guesthouse to gain a deeper understanding of Thai life.
