DRIFTING THE EXOTIC CANAL OF BANGKOK
KHLONG SAEN SAEP
DID YOU KNOW?
There is another way which you can beat from the traffic in Bangkok city. A 10 – 15 minutes’ walk from our hotel to the Nana Chard pier & you can explore the exotic “Khlong (Canal) Saen Saep”. Make sure to add this to the list of exotic exploring around the city in a local style.
GETTING AROUND THE CANAL
An express boat ferry operates for passenger to travel through this canal provided with many routing. We somehow will write more on one specific routing that will be a highlight to our tourist that is getting to Central World located at Thailand main shopping district. Now to get there you would have to depart from the Nana Chard pier and get down at the Pratunam pier – sounds about right isn’t it? Carefree from the traffic. Pratunam pier is just three stops away from the Nana Chard pier. Around that area apart from central world, you can add retail shopping at Platinum mall to your shopping list as well.
Pratuman pier also acts as the intersection (central) pier that allows you to change the routing through the canal to visit other cultural destinations like the Grand Palace, Talad (Market) Bobae etc.
PRICE RANGE / HOW TO PAY FOR THE FARE?
The price range may varies from lowest THB 10 to the highest of THB 20 (lesser than USD$1). To pay your fare once you get on the ferry wait for the ticket attendant to reach out to you and then inform them your destination, he will then issue a small paper ticket for you and make sure to keep the ticket safe until you get off the boat and reach your final destination. As our focus is on the Pratunam pier the fare from Nana Chard pier is just THB 10.
