This Slow River Cruise Down Thailand’s Chao Praya Is a Journey Back in Time

Even after living in Bangkok for nine years, I rarely, if ever, leave the city by river. I am an anomaly, historically speaking, since the Thai capital was built around a network of canals fanning out from the Chao Phraya—the sacred waterway that flows from the city of Nakhon Sawan, in the country’s center, through Bangkok and out into the Gulf of Thailand.

Disney World may not be the first place that pops into your head when you think of solo travel destinations, but Disney is so much more than just nostalgic rides from your childhood and Mickey Mouse sightings (though it has both of those, too). Yes, it is a great theme park destination for families, but it’s also a fun place for solo adults to unleash their inner child. You just have to know how to do it right.
