The overall experience was great, if you feel like the boarding feel a bit like a rush, it’s because they’re trying to keep to the time that was promised. When you look at the schedule, the boat timing is almost perfect. If you’re one minute late, you may have to wait for the next one. They will not hold the boat for you, because then, they’ll be late for the next stop and so on. So, try to be there maybe 2-3 minutes prior. They announcement on the boat is in Thai and English, so is the on screen instructions. It tells you the attractions at each stop, the train and busses if applicable. There are crews on board to also make announcements, only in Thai, so I just use the official announcement. Unfortunately, the reason for for the 4 stars was the check-in at the beginning of the day. The instruction state the trip starts at 08:30 and to be there on time, not true. It starts @ 0900. Announcement again was in Thai and was very unorganized, besides this, it was a great experience

Had a lovely day on the boat. Had plenty of time to do all the stops I wanted and wander round the locations, it was a great way to see the city and the ferries were very well organized and frequent. Nice to get a map and timetable as well and all felt very easy, would definitely recommend.

A very cheap way to see the main landmarks. The boats are arriving every 30 minutes. If you are organised, you can see quite a lot in one day! We took the boats during the day up and down, but especially the last 2, so we can see Bangkok at dusk. Beautiful! The ticket at the pier costs 150 Baht/person.
