For a glimpse of old-world Bangkok, a tour along the klongs – or canals – of Thonburi promises a treat. Gliding in a longtail boat, you'll see old wooden houses and locals going about their daily lives. You'll then hop on a rice barge to leisurely make your way back along the River Chao Phraya, checking out the main sights as you go.
Escape the frenzy of activity in Bangkok and hop on a longtail boat to ride through the quaint canals of Thonburi – a former royal capital, whose name means ‘City of Treasures'. You'll get a real sense of local life as it has been for centuries as we navigate through the network of narrow waterways, as people in boast criss-cross it with their goods to sell.
Afterwards, you'll join a rice barge cruise to float back on the River Chao Phraya. And you'll have the best seats in the house as you glide past the stately Wat Arun – or Temple of Dawn – the Royal Grand Palace and Royal Barges Museum. An afternoon of laidback sightseeing.
