About Travel to Bangkok
Bangkok is a very diverse city with over 10 million permanent residents. There are lots of different places to visit and lots of different and distinctive areas within the city to experience. Some parts of the city are very old and very parts very new. The oldest part of the city, and where Bangkok’s most famous tourist attractions are located, is Rattanakosin Island. Rattanakosin Island is a riverside area located to North of China Town and to the South of the famous Khao San road. It is described as being an island because on the West side is the Chao Phraya River, and on the East several canals constructed to form a defensive barrier as well as to allow people and good to travel around the area by boat.
Rattanakosin Island was the place where King Rama 1 decided to locate his new capital in 1782, and Thailand’s most popular tourist attraction, the Grand Palace, is located there as are several very important and interesting temples, such as Wat Pho and Wat Suthat Thepwararam. Travel by public transport to Rattanakosin Island is not as simple and quick as it is to other popular parts of the city because this riverside area isn’t connected to any of the city’s modern suburban light railway networks. Bus services are very slow in Central Bangkok also. The best way to travel to Rattanakosin Island remains the same as it was at the time the city was first established, which is by water. There are inexpensive river boat and canal boat commuter services that you can use to connect from the MRT (subway) and BTS (overhead trains) for travel into Rattanakosin Island.
