Wan Fah Rice Barge Cruise


River Cruises

Bangkok has (along with a handful of other Asian cities) been nicknamed the Venice of the East for decades, thanks to its web of rivers and canals. Although the etymology of Bangkok itself is unclear, the Thai word 'Bang' translate into English as 'village situated on a stream'. If you do one cultural thing in Bangkok, a river cruise is the way to go. The water is what gives the city its energy and by taking to the waters, you are experiencing life the way so many Thai people have done in the past.

Wan Fah Rice Barge Cruise sets off from Chao Phraya (River City) Pier at 2.30pm each day and takes you in a long tail speed boat, showing you the highlights of the waterfront, as well as exploring the surrounding canals like Klongmon, Bangkhunsri, Klongchak, Pra and Bangkok-noi. At Wat Keelex you will move into a rice barge boat, where you will cruise past the Grand Palace, the Temple of Dawn and the Royal Barge Museum.

A selection of tropical fruits will be available on the tour.
