Countries,  Thailand,  What to see

A little bit about the waterway: the route through Bangkok. Day 2

The traffic of boats on the river Chaopraya as incomprehensible as on the roads of Bangkok. There are  about 15 pieces. But where is it really worth leave the boat for the land?

1. If you start a trip from the north you can go to the Elephant pier from where it is easy to get to the Grand Royal Palace if you have not yet visited it.

2. On the other side of the river a snow-white prang tower stands among the low houses — this is the temple of Wat Arun. This is where the Emerald Buddha first was placed and in the 18th century it was the central temple of all Siam.

3. If you want to buy some fruits or flowers or just some other small things stop at the Pak Klong market pier. This place attracts many travelers with its authentic atmosphere and exoticism. And the opportunity to make good photos.

4. If you want more modern shopping then it is better to choose pier 'River City'. There is a cool shopping center where you can eat and buy clothes of modern Thai designers.

If to walk a little deeper into the streets there will be Chinatown in a couple of blocks. It's a place in the city that is always worth visiting in order to feel the true Asia.

5. The final stop may be the pier 'Saphan Taksin'. But the day is not over yet so we jump into the train at the station above and ride to the highest viewing decks in Bangkok.

6. Bayok Tower is the tallest hotel in Bangkok. On the 77th floor there is a restaurant where you can take a breath after a long day, sit back in an armchair and enjoy the sunset over the bustling Thai capital.
