tour details

One of the most unique and 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 in stark contrast to 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 precariously balanced wooden shop fronts. This picturesque view is what earned Bangkok the title of “Venice of the East.” As part of the tour, we’ll stop at Wat Arun (Temple of Dawn), one of the most spectacular Buddhist temples in Thailand. Here you’ll have the opportunity to climb the narrow steps leading to the top of the central tower (prang) with spectacular views across the Chao Phraya towards the city.
