As you can imagine for a city with a river running through the center, Bangkok is home to many boats and one of the best ways to see the city is by hiring a boat to take you through some of the back canals. The first part of the trip brought us down the main strip of the river which is dotted with high rise hotels and office buildings with the occasional temple pagoda peeking up between them.
Once we got into the back canals we started to see the other side of the city. Its amazing how different things were from the tourist center.
