Ferry Trip To Wang Lang Pier on the Chao Phraya River

We headed out towards the river today. In boiling Bangkok taking the ferry is one way to keep cool(ish).

At the pier they offered us an all-day tourist boat ticket for 150bht ($5), and it came with a little keepsake book showing the sights along the river.

The market was mostly clothes but the wat had some interesting sights.
