Canal Boats in Bangkok
Most visitors to Bangkok will have heard of the Skytrain, which is Bangkok’s fast elevated railway system also known as the BTS, and Bangkok’s MTR Metro system, bur far fewer visitors to the city are aware of it excellent and cheap public commuter boat service along one of Bangkok’s major canals.
The network is called the Khlong Saen Saep boat service and it has two lines, the Nida Line and Golden Mount Line, which run a combined distance of 18 km with a total of 29 stops on route. The network is open from 05:30 and 20:30 every day and tickets cost between 8 and 20 THB depending on the distance travelled.
The Khlong Saen Saep canal runs east to west across the city. The western section of the network, the Golden Mount Line, runs from near to Democracy Monument (a short walk from the Khao San Road) to Pratunam Pier with a stop on route near to Siam Square. The eastern section of the network, the NIDA Line, runs from Pratunam Pier eastwards with a stop on route close to the popular Lower Sukhumvit Road then on past Ramkhamhaeng University and terminating in the Bang Kapi District of Bangkok.
A ride on the boats is fun and it is also the best way to get cheaply and quickly between the Lower Sukhumvit Road and the Khao San Road. When the traffic get congested you can normally travel more quickly from the Sukhumvit Road to the Khao San Road by canal boat than you can by private taxi.
