Rapid River Boats in Bangkok: Your Everyday No Escape Route

River Boats and Ferries in Bangkok, Thailand

Venice, Italy continuously generates a lot of inspiration and ideas for other cities to follow, when it comes to boat rides and water transportations. River boats, ferries, and all other things seem to be romanticized and luxuriated, because of how Venice has depicted it to be. In Asia, some of you may probably notice that you can almost find these kinds of transportations everywhere, most notably in South East Asia. However, it seems to fall under a different kind of romanticism. It’s very “everyday”, and people riding these things don’t seem to be inspired, but perspired! Nope, this is not the touristy kind of river boats; yep, this is the type you would want your local friend to let you try it out.

Take Thailand as an example. The local Thai lady who invited me to ride that boat was eager for me to experience the real romantic side of these river boats. And by romantic, I mean, the everyday awesome adventure that is known as the Bangkok rivers. I’ve tried this a couple of times back then, even the one in HCMC, as well as in Singapore, but there’s something quite distinct about the ones in Thailand that will make you want to not escape. Will you fancy the every day living like a local commute style in Bangkok? You should try it out for yourself at least once!
