Bangkok is known as a South East Asian metropolis where people are always on a rush. In order to keep everybody moving (and not stuck in traffic as it often happens!), the administration of the Capital tries to provide us with all sorts of means of transportation. While I was living in Tonburi, I often used the boat to cross Chao Phraya River after getting off the BTS at Saphan Taksin. The guy in charge with securing the boat near the pier was quite a stunt man!!!
