What we will see & where we will be

Embark on a unique 2-hour canal (klong) tour aboard a classic longtail boat. Dive into the rich history of Bangkok as you navigate its ancient waterways and catch glimpses of local life along the famous canals. This adventure is tailored for anyone who loves capturing moments and exploring new cultures.

Throughout history, canals have served as the lifeblood of Thailand, earning Bangkok the moniker 'Venice of the East' from intrigued Westerners. Join us as we journey for two hours along the timeless waterways of Thonburi, where remnants of traditional 'canal life' still echo, predating the dominance of motorized vehicles.

Starting with a leisurely stroll from our office to the pier, we'll hop onto a longtail boat to cross the Chao Phraya River to Thonburi. There, we'll delve into the intricate canal system, passing by charming wooden homes on stilts, ornate temples, and bustling markets rooted in the waterside lifestyle. Along the way, we'll make brief stops to get a closer look at these fascinating sights and maybe pick up some tasty local snacks too!
