Enjoy the beautiful and interesting river sights of Bangkok, including many temples. Take a self-guided boat trip on the regular express boat on the Chao Phraya river from the Phra Athit Pier (near Khao San Road) to the Sathorn pier (BTS Taksin Bridge) or vice versa. Find a map in the sidebar >>>

Wangderm Palace

The Wangderm Palace of King Taksin (NOT related to Thai prime minister Thaksin) was built within Fort Vichai Prasit and used during the short period that Thonburi was the capital of Thailand (1768-1782). In front of the gate there's a statue of King Taksin "the Great" as he is called in Thailand.

The palace later housed the Royal Thai Naval Academy and the entire area is now part of the Royal Thai Navy Headquarters.
