Chao Phraya River

The Chao Phraya is the main river in Thailand, it begins at the confluence of the Ping and Nan rivers at Nakhon Sawan in Nakhon Sawan province. Chao Phraya flows for 372 kilometers from the central plains to Bangkok and then it flows in the Gulf of Thailand. In Chainat, one of the central provinces of Thailand, the river splits into the main course and the Tha Chin river, which then flows parallel to the main river and falls about 35 kilometers west of Bangkok. From the main river many small canals split off, these are used for the irrigation of the region’s rice paddies.

In Bangkok, the Chao Phraya is a major transportation artery for a vast network of river buses, cross-river ferries and water taxis, known as longtails. More than 15 boat lines operate on the rivers and canals of the city as public transport service.

The heavily urbanized lower reaches of the Chao Phraya River are lined with factories and industrial plants which are interspersed with rustic shanty-like housing local fishermen and other local inhabitants. The Chao Phraya River has previously produced gigantic Giant Siamese Carp, Catfish and Giant Freshwater Stingrays. The Chao Phraya River represents the challenge to adventurous anglers wishing to explore the River in search of true freshwater monsters.
