There is no sky train line near the Grand Palace but there is a ferry line in the nearby river. So we caught the sky train to the Saphan Taksin station. The ferry terminal is directly underneath the train station so an easy walk. We dodged the expensive tour operators and went to the Chao Phraya Express Boat stop. The express boat, with an orange flag on top was less stops to the palace. Even so it was about 7 stops. The ferry was a grand price of 15 baht ($0.50) per person. Or the overpriced tour boats for 600 baht.

With huge motors
Then we arrived at the palace. Lots of walking around in very very humid very very hot temperature.
Strange shapes in plants
Some strange flavours of ice cream on sale. We didn’t try any.
