Time-Lapse Tuesday: Bangkok’s River of Kings

December 16, 2014 G Adventures

It’s Tuesday, so it’s “time” to “lapse” it up! (See what we did there?) Each week, we’ll share a new way of looking at this big blue planet of ours. While a photo does a great job of capturing what we see with our own eyes, a time-lapse reveals just how little the eye can see. Come aboard with us as we explore the trade route of Bangkok’s River of the Kings.

Although the Chao Phraya River sees much of its action in Bangkok, its tributaries reach as far as northern Thailand. In the north you’ll find rice patties replacing the swamplands that once surrounded much of the river, while in Bangkok it’s much more of a highway than a waterway with long-tail boats and ferry companies helping with the city’s congested commute.

Getting There

G Adventures runs a number of departures to Thailand encompassing a wide range of departure dates and activities to cater for different tastes. We’re thrilled at the prospect of showing you this big blue planet of ours — check out our small group trips here.
