The Chao Praya river is not the cleanest river you will see. It is a chaotic vain in the center of Bangkok.It is however a good way to travel trough Bangkok.

This river flowing through the city is its lifeblood. It is fascinating to just sit and watch the daily activities on the river. Feel the pulse of the river by taking a boat tour on the river or just hop onto the many ferries that...More

Chinatown / Yaowarat
Better known as 'Yaowarat' among locals, Chinatown is
Bangkok's bustling district that never sleeps. During
the day, the main street and its small alleyways are
filled with a vibrant mix of colours, scents and
flavours coming from the roadside restaurants and
all-day markets. The real action, however, happens
after sunset. Surrounded by neon lights, Thais and
tourists alike flock here around dinnertime to feast

If you want to be pampered I suggest the Peninsula which is on the river and has 3 ferries. Worth it.
