One of the best and most memorable ways to explore Bangkok is by boat. A cruise along the mighty Chao Phraya River – the city’s lifeblood – and the meandering canals of Thonburi, reveals scenes at odds with the bustling and modern inner city. On this tour you’ll get a glimpse of the serene and simple lifestyle of riverbank dwellers as you pass historic ‘lean-to’ houses and precarious shop fronts. This picturesque view is what earned Bangkok the title of “Venice of the East.” Our extended tour takes you on a longer route through smaller local canals and includes visits to the Royal Barges Museum and Wat Arun (Temple of Dawn). Towering 79 metres above the water’s edge, Wat Arun is one of the most stunning and decorative of Thailand’s amazing 31,200 Buddhist temples.
