tour details

Join us on the ‘River Of Kings’ tour as we cruise the Chao Phraya River on a specially adapted, old style rice barge. After picking you up from your hotel, we will take you to the barge by taxi boat while our English speaking guide points out such famous landmarks as the Temple of the Dawn, the Grand Palace, and the Royal Barge Museum. You will join the barge at Wat Nairong in Klong Bangkok Noi for a leisurely trip back to the starting point. As an added bonus to your languid journey down the lazy river, the barge has a centrepiece table full of the country’s delightful tropical fruits. Rambutan, mangosteen, pineapple, bananas and more are offered for you to sample to your heart’s content. A Mai Tai Cocktail and soft drinks are also available at no extra charge.

tour description

A visit to Bangkok would not be complete without spending some time on the Chao Phraya River. An ideal way to take in the "River of Kings" is to join a tour on an old style wooden rice barge converted to accommodate passengers. You will be picked up at your hotel by van or coach around 14:00hrs (pick up time depends on the location of your hotel as well as on traffic conditions). At 15:00hrs, depart from River City pier by taxi-boat, touring along the Chao Praya River. An English-speaking guide points out all the famous landmarks such as the Temple of the Dawn (Wat Arun), the Grand Palace and Royal Barge Museum. The river is teeming with boats of all shapes and sizes. On all sides, cross-river ferries, speeding long-tails, river taxis and trains of massive barges pulled by tugboats a fraction of their size haul their cargoes to and fro. Disembark near Wat Nairong in Klong Bangkok Noi and board a converted rice barge for a leisurely trip back to the starting point. As an added bonus to your languid journey down the lazy river, the barge has a centerpiece table full of the country's delightful tropical fruits. Rambutan, mangosteen, pineapple, bananas and more are offered for you to sample away to your heart's content. A Mai Tai Cocktail and soft drinks are offered on the rice barge without extra charge. Disembark at River City pier at around 17:00hrs and transfer back to your hotel.
