Hop on a typical Thai long-tail boat to explore Bangkok's canal life. This 2-hour canal tour gives you the chance to experience a local part of Bangkok.


  • Experience a traditional Thai long-tail boat ride along the city's canals
  • Explore life on the canals and get a glimpse of how local Thais live
  • See the wooden house community along the canal, from young to old
  • Visit and take photos with Bangkok's biggest Buddha at a temple


Explore life on and around the klongs (canals) of Bangkok and get a glimpse of how the local people live. See elderly people sitting on the chairs on the wooden docks of their tiny homes overlooking the canal, women hanging laundry to dry, and children jumping into the water and swimming in the canal. Make a stop at Baan Silapin (The Artist's House), a traditional Thai house that has been converted into a public space to preserve art and traditional performance styles. The wooden house, over 200 years old and lovingly restored by its owner, sits at the heart of a small community of rustic shophouses that are connected by a wooden walkway that follows the edge of the klong (canal). Then, pass Wat Paknam Phasi Charoen temple built in the mid-Ayutthaya period in the Phasi Charoen District in Thonburi. Snap a photo of the huge Buddha statue at this temple., which sits towering nearly 70 meters above the ground, and it is Bangkok's biggest Buddha image, with a width of 40 meters in its cross-legged meditation posture. Head back to your starting point having experienced a different side of Bangkok.
