The Chao Phraya and its network of canals dominate Bangkok's everyday life. Your options include commuter ferries that transport locals and visitors along the central waterway, as well as fleets of khlongs (river taxis), not to mention a whole industry of dinner cruises. But to really experience Bangkok at a different pace you must hire a long-tail boat with ornately painted designs that make them an art form in themselves. Spend at least half a day, if not a full day, and choose an old-timer for your captain—he'll know how to steer the boat in and around those impossibly tight canals of Thonburi and beyond as you sit back and take in the slow-motion vista of temples, rice farms and floating markets.
