Boats on Chao Phraya river in Bangkok

This is one of the things I found very entertaining during my visit to Bangkok. These boats serve most of the tourists spots. Easy to take and ride, favorite transportation for locals and tourists.

Hi!
Thank you for comment. I really enjoyed a lot and I have more video and photos to come.

I don't know this Jatujak Market. Next time I might visit it. Its really a bit city!

Bangkok needs some more tourist information. All days I was using map created by some department store.
