English: The Chao Phraya (แม่น้ำเจ้าพระยา) is a major river in Thailand, with its low alluvial plain forming the centre of the country. It runs through Bangkok, the capital city, and then empties into the Gulf of Siam. In Bangkok, the Chao Phraya river is a major transportation artery for a vast network of river buses, cross-river ferries and water taxis, also known as longtails. More than 15 boat lines operate on the rivers and canals of the city, including tourist boats and river cruises.
