Bangkok's criss-crossing network of Khlongs (canals) opens doors to another world not commonly seen by tourists. Dirty and dangerous... but also handy, vibrant and exhilarating. An 18km long section of these canals are served by express boats providing a fast, inexpensive means of cutting across traffic-infested Bangkok. They run between 05:30 and 20:30 each day, arriving approximately every 10 to 15 minutes and stopping at 27 piers. Fares range between 10 and 20 baht, depending on how far you travel.

I was late in reaching the spot, at that time the service was over for the day otherwise could have gone for a lovely ride.
