Bangkok is an ancient city. It is massive, chaotic, and confusing. Touring the city will sap up your energy and will bring you blisters the size of your own toes. I found that using the Chao Phraya tourist boats make moving from one tourist spot to another easier than hailing taxis and arguing with the driver when he gets the location wrong. It is also inexpensive at THB180 for the whole day. Here is my guide to using the river cruise to see all that you must see in Bangkok. Advertisements
Bojo River is not a unique tourist attraction. There are many river tours in the Philippines and in the world. What made us admire the river cruise is its organization and the profit-sharing between the local government and the citizens who manage the cruise operations. We think the cruise is one of the best examples of how a government can work together with its citizenry to make the best of what a certain place can offer as a tourist attraction and gain from it in the most socially-responsible and environmentally-sustainable way.
