Step back in time and experience the authentic riverside life of Bangkok on a 2-hour longtail boat tour. Navigate through the enchanting canals of Thonburi, uncovering the rich heritage of 'canal life' that once defined all of Bangkok before the advent of motor vehicles. Historically, canals were the expressways of choice for the Thai people. Join us for a 2-hour exploration along the ancient waterways of Thonburi, where we observe the many elements of the 'canal life' that once characterized all of Bangkok. After a short walk from our office to the pier, we will board a longtail boat to take us across the Chao Phraya River to Thonburi. Here, we will enter the canal system and see an abundance of interesting wooden homes on stilts, temples, and markets oriented towards life along the water. En route, we will make a few short stops to explore some of these sights up close.
