Once the main transport route to the capital, today you can still catch a water taxi across the river to visit a Temple, or enjoy an evening meal or a few drinks on one of the floating restaurants on the riverside.  
Outside the city there are some marvelous natural attractions, including, Beung Boraphet, Thailandís largest freshwater swamp area with an amazing array of migratory birds and aquatic life, Mae Wong National Park where you can trek into the wilderness, and Khao No, where the twilight spectacle of millions of bats emerging from their roosts is not to be missed.
