We woke up a bit later than planned as we turned in quite late yesterday night. After having breakfast in the hostel, we head to our first destination - Grand Palace. As there are no BTS or MRT near the Grand Palace, the only mode of public transport is Chao Phraya Express Boat. We took BTS from the hostel to Saphan Thaksin station where the Sathorn Pier (Central Pier) is located.

We asked the counter whether Chao Phraya Express tickets are purchased here but we couldn't figured out what that guy is talking. We asked again and eventually we figured out that the tickets are purchase and pay on board. The tickets sold here are for boarding the Chao Phraya tourist boat.

Actually we didnt know which boat to board but since we saw many people flocking to this boat, we just followed.

A tourist boat?
There is a ticket selling going around the boat to collect boat fare. She holds a metal cyclinder containing coins and tickets and claps the cyclinder while she's making her rounds. She has a super powerful memory as she seems to know who has paid and who hasn't.
