Cruising the Saen Saeb Canal in Bangkok

Cruising the Saen Saeb Canal in Bangkok

One of the last things Chris and I did before I left Bangkok was to take a boat along the Saen Saeb canal.

This particular stretch runs from Bangkapi to Pathumwan, a considerable distance which took about an hour or so. If you look at a map of Bangkok, you’ll see lots of waterways. This is how people travelled around the city many moons ago. Not all of them are used nowadays, but I think it’s wonderful that people can still traverse the city in this way.

If you get the chance, take a boat along one of the canals, it’s such a pleasureable way to travel away from the chaotic traffic on the roads

I hope you enjoy the ride!

We had to take a taxi to reach Banglamphu as the boat only went so far, but we had a fabulous day out. We walked for miles, ate, drank and were very merry by the end of the evening! We had such good times in that city and I still can’t believe I left over 2 years ago! I really miss Bangkok and can’t wait to go again soon.

Enjoy your weekend πŸ™‚

  1. How times have changed everywhere…remember spending a month in Kalimantan, which I’ll get to digitise soon, but most of the travel was up and down canals as we went from West to East – amazing!
