Longtail Boat Ride on the Chao Phraya River
Board a long-tail boat and travel along the Chao Phraya River. Observe the Thai lifestyle – the contrast between luxurious condominiums and ruined houses along both sides of the River.
Pass by Wat Arun,'Temple of Dawn'. This monumental 86-meter Khmer-style prang, one of the largest religious monuments in the country, towers above the Chao Phraya to form Bangkok's most impressive and famous landmark. Wat Arun symbolically represents the Buddhist universe, with its trident- capped central tower indicating Mount Meru and the four smaller towers depicting the four worldly oceans. Reflective beauty comes from thousands of multi-glazed Chinese porcelains embedded into the structure by Buddhist devotees.
