Fast and cheap you can explore Bangkok from the Riverside. The express boats are the best way to reach the Grand Palace, Wat Pho, and Wat Arun (you need to take a 3 baht ferry from the Wat Pho ferry landing to get to Wat Arun). Just take the BTS Silom Line, to Saphan Taksin, go down the stairs and walk towards the river. Make sure to take the orange flag boat. Buy the tickets on board for 15 baht per person. All piers are marked clearly with English signs. The orange flagged boat stops at all of the tourist locations,so they are the best option for most visitors.If you have the time, I highly recommend going all the way to Nonthaburi - stop #30. You will get to see the whole route, and Nonthaburi is a very nice area to walk around. There is a large cluster of shops, bakeries, etc right outside the ferry landing.

Description:
Boats are a great way to get around the famous Riverside area with its many historical attractions, temples and architecture eg. Wat Arun (the Temple of Dawn) the Grand Palace, Wat Po and the Royal Barge Museum, and also to explore the 'klongs' (canals) for a glimpse of Bangkok from yesteryear. Several kinds of boats (express boats, river taxis and tail-boats) run up and down the Chao Phraya River, connecting with the local suburbs on the Thonburi side and along the river, while ferries can be used to cross the river at various points. The Sathorn Pier can be reached easily as it is located directly in front of Saphan Taksin BTS Skytrain Station.
