We thought the boat trip was a good way to finish off the day. It stopped at 3 temples and we went through a khlong. It took a bit more than 2 hours and it was 200 bahts, entrance fee to temples is not included.

Go on a boat tour! Chao praya river is a river that flows to bangkok. Yes the water is not clean but alongside you will see beautiful architectures. I paid 220 for boat riding.

Think we overpaid but it was good value for money and the boat handler was very good, pointed things out and then stopped at two sets of ruins and a huge temple with a tall gold Buddha. Good way to spend a few hours

My tour start from the hotel, bus up to Ayutthaya with a stop at a big garden with many excellent houses. Then cruise back to BKK in the afternoon down the river.
