Express Boats, also called River Taxis, are often regconized through their colour-coded flags. Boat tickets are available for purchasing at piers or on the boats. There are 5 different types of express boats, differentiated by their flag colours.

Among them, the orange flag boat is the best option for travelers who want to explore Chao Phraya River and get to the Grand Palace. We can say so because it is the only express boat that operates all day.

Service route: These boats cover 21 piers.

Service hours: 06:00 to 19:00 daily

Ticket fares: It costs you 15 baht ($0.43) per trip, no matter how far you travel.
