  • Duration: 2 Hours (approx.)
  • Product code: P1RGZ0

Sit back and take in the sights as your boat sails down the Chao Phraya River and traverses the khlongs of Thonburi. Look for city landmarks as you cruise, stopping at noteworthy locations along the river like divine Wat Arun and the grand Royal Barges National Museum.

Start your waterway adventure by traveling to the pier of River City and down the khlongs of Bangkok, an historic transportation network primarily used in the city's past. Observe locals going about their daily routine as you float upstream.

Cruise to Wat Arun and visit the largest prang temple spire in Thailand, beautifully styled with ceramic tiles and fragments of multicolored porcelain that will take your breath away.

A motorboat carries you into the Bangkok Noi canal and past the Royal Barges National Museum—home to 8 decorated barges used only for auspicious occasions such as royal processions and religious ceremonies. Disembark back at the River City pier and enjoy a relaxing drive back to you hotel.
