Long Tail Boat Race vs Amazing Race
The Gold Rush is similar to our popular Thailand amazing races. However, teams travel along the river and canals. It’s the best way to avoid all the traffic jams.
The Chao Phraya river is the most important transportation artery for a network of cross-river ferries, and river taxis – mostly used by the long-tails boats. There are more than 15 boat lines which operate along the rivers and canals including numerous commuter lines.

Are Long Tail boats Safe?
There are times I do get a little nervous! When the river is a little choppy you can get a bumpy, rough ride. Sometimes they feel like they’re tipping. However, I have never come across any stories of sinking or safety problems with long tail boats. It’s all part of the fun!
