What to expect

Through the sprawling city of Bangkok, with its towers and skyscrapers, a network of waterways flow peacefully allowing locals and tourists to glide through the silent waters and experience the devoted soul of the city, besides the cosmopolitan one.

Your your will begin by hopping on a local public bus and heading over to the Grand Palace. The stunning palace grounds feel almost unreal with their colours and amazing architecture. You will learn everything about the Palace and the most sacred Buddhist temple in Thailand, Wat Phra Kaew, thanks to your local guide.

You will then move on to Wat Po, another beautiful temple home of the reclining Buddah. Walking down the Chao Phraya River, commonly known as the River of Kings, you'll then arrive at your longtail boat. You will then be able to experience why Bangkok is known as the "Venice of the East" while gliding through the network of ‘khlongs’, or canals. In clear contrast with the busy streets and chaos of the city, you will have the chance to see how small communities live in the small settlements in this area.

This tour offers a unique opportunity to visit both famous sights and hidden spots, exploring them through the eyes of a local.
