Afternoon Rice Barge River Tour with Long-Tail Speedboat
- Duration: 2 Hours (approx.)
- Product code: PFWWPW
Acquaint yourself with a different side of Bangkok by drifting through its meandering canals and the Chao Phraya River. Float past waterside markets and dwellings, soaking up the local culture and scenery.
After your hotel pickup, begin your afternoon tour and experience a less-touristy Bangkok along its many waterways. Board a longtail speedboat and pass through narrow canals (known as khlongs) alongside which locals live, work, and play, creating a thriving waterside culture. Learn about Bangkok's history and the pivotal role of the Chao Phraya River and canals of Thonburi.
View the many canal temples, old wooden homes, and vibrant markets selling local farm produce and handicrafts. Next, embark on a converted rice barge for a cruise down the grand Chao Phraya River. Watch as the sights of Bangkok slowly pass by, including the opulent Grand Palace and famous Temple of Dawn.
Onboard the barge, enjoy a complimentary selection of fresh tropical fruits, cocktails, and soft drinks as you take in the interesting sights.
