Bangkok Canal Trip


ที่พักบางแสน – I’d seen Bangkok several times before and never used among those canal boats. I frequently read about these as being a wonderful alternative means to get around Bangkok and it will give you great access to other areas of the city. On my last trip in October 2009 I resolved to get a ride on Khlong Saen Saeb. This canal contains two lines that interchange at Pratunam pier. One traces extends west terminating at Fhan Fha, close to Wat Saket (the Golden Mount) and another moving east all the way out to Bang Kapi.

I went together with my (Thai) spouse not being courageous enough to reconcile it in my own at my very first effort! We jumped down to the Pratunam dock, that is quite gloomy and just like most of Bangkok, the paving along with the bridge to the canal was in a bad state of repair. The canal itself looks dirty, whatever you do don’t fall in! But this really is Bangkok and you sort of hope this and for me personally it all a portion of the town’s appeal. We jumped on a ship towards Fhan Fha first of which wizzes you throughout the congested Pathumwan district next to Phetburi road originally. On your right you can see the enormous Platinum Fashion mall as well as also the famous Pantip Plaza for many things.

After a few minutes I had been wondering how you paid, the seats on the ship is organized in rows without the paths throughout the center. You essentially shuffle along to let more individuals in. Then a woman appeared in the side of me, complete with crash helmet, walking across the edge of this ship! She gathered our bookings and leaned in to collect the fares out of the folks next to us out of their way to prevent an undercover bridge.

Before we knew it we had been right behind Jim Thompson’s House. If you are fighting to receive your bearings this can help as JT’s House is a rather centrally set and famous landmark, close to Siam Square and MBK shopping center.

Around this area you’ll be able to catch some glimpses of a old fashioned manner of life from Bangkok since you begin to find some home that was constructed round the canal. Keep your camera handy because you’ll pass in a flash!

Next to last stop takes you to Bo-Be marketplace, a famed garment marketplace. We stayed on until the end of the line, once you disembark, scale the steps up and left over a bridge on Thanon Bonphat and you’ll notice the Golden Mount. If you go another way along Thanon Ratchdamnoen, in your left is Wat Ratchanatdaram. The major attraction here is Loha Prasat (metal palace) and other unusual buildings. A little further down the street you’ll be able to view the Democracy Monument.

We caught the boat back into Pratunam and moved over another line with the intent of quitting off a random cease to discover someplace to have lunch. We chose on cease 9 (Thong Lo) that will be an up and coming hip district, also happened on the Market Place shopping center. In there’s the Mama Do suki restaurant, very similar to MK but using various sauces accessible (the soup which you boil your meals in). If you are passing through Thong Lo I would advise it.

After lunch we decided to return but walk a part of this way back home. We took the ship back up to Witthayu. This cease drops you close Thanon Witthayu (Wireless Road) very near the British Embassy. We walked the 20-30 minutes or so to Lumpini Park were we caught a drink and sat in the shade for some time before heading off home.
