Thonburi is located on the west bank of the Chao Phraya River. It’s easy to get across the river and explore. It’s still less developed compared to the eastern side of the river and many of the traditional small waterways still exist there. Two places of interest are the Santa Cruz Church and Wichai Prasit Fort, although the latter is not open to the public and the best way to see it is from the river.
