Taking a Ride on a Water Taxi in Bangkok
When you think of the great canal cities of the world, it’s possible that Bangkok isn’t one of the cities you think of. And while a ride through the canals of Bangkok certainly lacks the calm and romance of a leisurely float through the canals of Venice, it’s a quick and easy way to get around the city.
The Bangkok water taxis aren’t much used by tourists, but they’re popular with the locals – which is just one more reason to hop on a Bangkok water taxi and go along for the ride. As this video demonstrates, however, you’d better be quick about it – there’s no dilly-dallying here!
Perhaps the best part of the trip on a water taxi in Bangkok is that it’s a fast and fun ride for 16 baht – or only about 50 cents!
