Why Canal Tour in Bangkok?
In the old days, Bangkok was comprised of hundreds of small canals or “khlong” in Thai and local people mainly traveled by water. They relied heavily on the waterways as this mode of transportation is faster, more convenient and efficient than the land route.
Today, most canals in Bangkok have been filled in and converted into streets. However, on the other bank of the Chao Phraya River, our old capital Thonburi which covers an area west of the river still retains many of its larger khlongs. On this side of the city, it is still possible to see the fields, orchards, small family farms and orchid nurseries that are located in the ever-expanding metropolis of Bangkok.
Must Do in Bangkok “Small Teak Boat Adventure”
A canal tour is a “must do” for people who like to see the traditional Thai ways of living and get a special feeling of Bangkok which can only be obtained by taking a canal tour in Bangkok. Our tour will take you to the old capital in the Thonburi side, a more intimate way to look at the old Siam, with many stops to let you experience the historical, cultural and interactive lives of the local canal people. We take a small group on our teak boat to make an unforgettable journey with a mode of transportation that is now rarely used.
During our sustainable boat tour, you will enjoy magnificent views of lush greenery without leaving Bangkok. We will cruise along the orchards and farms right next to the city.
