Bangkok River Taxi Boats of Khlong Saen Saep Express

A quick and very cheap way to get around Bangkok, Thailand during the daytime are the Khlong Saen Saep Express boats.

Unlike your hometown’s overpriced and sometimes dangerous transit system, riding the rivers here is fun and extremely quick. You either catch on or you wait for the next boat!

We jumped on the Golden Mount Line at Pratunam and rode to the end at Panfa Leelard only to ride back since there were still ongoing protest in the area we planned to wander.

More information about visiting Bangkok’s Baan Silapin (บ้านศิลปิน): http://migrationology.com/?p=16182

Baan Silapin (บ้านศิลปิน), also known as Bangkok’s Artist’s House or Baan Khlong Bang Luang, is a two hundred year old wooden home in the city. It’s located across the Chao Phraya river from much of downtown Bangkok, in an area known as Thonburi, right along one of the main canals. Arriving to Baan Silapin (บ้านศิลปิน) is a real throwback in time, it feels like you’re far removed from the chaos and clutter of Bangkok and back to how the city was when it first started to be settled and developed. The only reason you know you’re still in Bangkok is the obnoxious thundering longtail boats that zoom past every few minutes. The Artist’s House is along one of the main tour canals, so it does have a lot of boat traffic – but it’s still a great place to visit.

So we arrived to Baan Silapin (บ้านศิลปิน) in the early afternoon and after walking around a few of the shops, we then went straight to Bangkok Artist’s House and decided to grab lunch. Khao gaeng, or a variety of Thai curries and prepared dishes was on the menu. I chose a bowl mushroom coconut milk curry, bitter melon stuffed with pork, a fried mackerel fish and omelet served with shrimp paste hot sauce, and a plate of rice topped with a fried egg. Sitting on the side of the house with a view of the canal was a memorable way to enjoy a feast. The food was good and the view was excellent.

At 2 pm each day except Wednesday (and occasional off days when the dancers get hired off site for a private event) there’s traditional Thai puppet show. The show is one of the main reasons to visit Baan Silapin (บ้านศิลปิน) in Bangkok. The performance was very well done and the puppets depicted a story from Hanuman. I was impressed and I would highly recommend the show to anyone who visits Bangkok.

After the Thai traditional puppet show, we had a coffee and sat relaxing at Baan Silapin (บ้านศิลปิน) for a few more minutes before heading back to the road and catching a taxi home. Bangkok Artist’s House is still an off the beaten track attraction to explore in Bangkok. It’s a nicely preserved home and a real fun activity when you visit!

Address: 315 Wat Tong Salangam, Phet Kasem 28, Thanon Phet Kasem, Pa Si Charoen, Bangkok, Thailand 10160
Open Hours: 9 am – 6 pm daily (but no puppet show on Wednesdays, also call ahead to confirm the puppet show)
Phone: 02-868-5279, 089-125-3949 , 081-258-9260
How to get there: If you don’t take a longtail boat from the Chao Phraya, the best way to get there is by taking a taxi to Charoen Sanitwong Soi 3. Go all the way to end of the road at the 7-Eleven. Then walk across the footbridge, make a left, and you’ll be at Baan Silapin in just a few minutes.
Thai Directions (for Taxi):
จรัญสนิทวงศ์ ซอย.3 เข้าซอยไปสุดซอยจะเจอ 7-11 ลงหน้าเซเว่น เดินเข้าไปในซอยข้างเซเว่น แล้วเดินข้ามสะพานข้ามคลอง แล้วเลี้ยวซ้าย

BANGKOK VLOG: Grand Palace, Wat Pho, Asiatique Shopping & HAUL!

BANGKOK VLOG: Grand Palace, Wat Pho, Asiatique Shopping & HAUL!

What a great end to an amazing trip! We couldn’t have asked for more… For our last day in Bangkok, we took the Tourist Boat to a couple of sites including the Grand Palace and Wat Pho. It was amazing to see these grand spots in person.

My fav part would have to be shopping at Asiatique… It has seriously everything you want as a visitor! A lot of souvenirs~

This was overall a fantastic trip. We did a lot within these few days.. but for sure, there’s so much more to discover here in Thailand. Hope to come back sooon!

20 Things to do in Chiang Mai, Thailand Travel Guide Video Transcript:

Today we’re taking you around a city that we’ve been to many times before: Chiang Mai. Located in the heart of Northern Thailand, Chiang Mai is a growing city with laid back vibes, temples sprinkled around every corner, and a foodie scene that will make you drool. This is a destination where you come to unwind and that’s exactly what we did during our month long visit. Now let’s get started with this tour of Chiang Mai (清邁) so you can see what this city is all about:

One of the best things you can do in Chiang Mai is ditch the map and get lost inside the old city. It’s along the quiet back lanes that you’ll find cozy cafes, terracotta gardens, unvisited temples, and a little flavour of the old Chiang Mai.

As you’ve probably figured out, we’re not really into nightlife, but Chiang Mai does have lots of bars where you can enjoy a drink or two. We kept things light with a Chang beer.

And that’s a wrap for our visit to Chiang Mai, Thailand. We hope this video gave you a little taste of what this city is all about. We’ll be the first to tell you that we barely scratched the surface in terms of everything Chiang Mai (清迈) has to offer, but that being said, the goal of our time here was to relax, eat well, see friends, and catch up on work. As always, if you have any other suggestions of things to do, places to visit, and restaurants to eat at, feel free to share those with fellow travellers in the comments below. Until next time!

This is part of our Travel in Thailand video series showcasing Thai food, Thai culture and Thai cuisine.
