Sploshing about on the river

Another Thailand shot...

We took one of these Long Tail Boats on a tour of the Chao Phraya River and surrounding canals. As with everything else we did in Bangkok, it was incredible in it's experience density. In places, the canals boiled with huge fish being fed from above by school children. In others, ramshackle homes by the dozen had been constructed on stilts many years beforehand, and the gradual erosion of the stilts had brought them to a dangerous tilt. Still ok to live in though - obviously... Komodo Dragons were plentiful, basking in the late afternoon sun

The size of the engines in these boats is ridiculous. It's a bit "pimp my ride" with turbo v8's and each boat being the pride and joy of the "Captain" We even experienced floating "bars" offering us to buy a "beer for driver".

Great fun

Thanks for looking
