70 Reviews

  • Location: Bangkok, Thailand
  • Duration: 3 hours (approx.)
  • Tour code: 3685BKK22C

This relaxed afternoon 2.5-hour Bangkok cruise will allow you to observe Thai people going about their everyday business in the 'The Venice of the East'.


Highlights

  • Instant Confirmation
  • Travel by boat and see the sights from the water
  • Free snacks included
  • Free hotel pickup and drop-off included

You'll be picked up from your centrally located Bangkok hotel and travel by long-tail cruise along the Bangkok canals. Travel through exotic flora and picturesque canal houses, before joining a converted rice barge cruise on the Chao Phraya river. All you need to do on this tour is sit back, relax and take in the amazing Thai scenery. Soft drinks and local fruits will be served on-board.

The rivers and canals around Bangkok serve as a natural highway for many local Thai people going about their everyday business. The people of Bangkok still depend on the waterways to transport their merchandise, in particular rice, as the canals are linked to the rice fields.

The two boat trips were fun but the best part was the fruit and snack buffet on the rice barge--the first part of the cruise was on a smaller boat. Because of the traffic problems caused by the protests I was picked up early, so I had some time to wait until the cruise started.
