Canal Boats in Bangkok
Canal boats are a major form of public transport in Bangkok. The busiest is the Khlong Saen Saep canal boat service which carries an estimated 50,000 to 60,000 passengers a day. The popularity of this service is due to several factors. Firstly, the service is very cheap. Tickets cost from 8 to 20 THB one way depending on how far you travel. Secondly, the service is very fast. The Khlong Saen Saep service connects the Bangkaapi district in the east of Bangkok on an 18 km route to Phanfa Bridge which is near to Deomcracy Monument, Wat Saket and the Khao San Road. Bangkok’s metro and overhead train systems (the ‘Sky Train’) don’t currently connect Central Bangkok to the area near the Khao San Road so the only way to travel there is on Bangkok’s congested road network. At most times of the day it is faster to travel from Central Bangkok to the Khao San Road on the Khlong Saen Saep canal boat service than it is using a much more expensive meter taxi. Thirdly, travelling by canal boat in Bangkok is a pleasurable experience with boats passing through otherwise unseen areas in Bangkok. There are lots of historic buildings on the route.
There are 29 piers where passengers can board the Khlong Saen Saep canal boat service, including Nana Nua Pier which is on a side road off the lower end of the popular Sukhumvit Road where many foreign visitors to the city choose to stay. The service runs every day from 05:30 to 20:30 with frequent departures throughout this operating period. You don’t need to buy a ticket in advance to use canal boat service you simply pay a ticket collector after boarding.
