We did the Klongs tour and loved it. It was very interesting to see how the people live on the canals. We went on a religious public holiday so unfortunately the floating market was closed.

A trip on a longtail boat to visit the klongs off the Chao Phraya River is great fun. We took our boat from the Mandarin Oriental Hotel pier and the boat marshall at the hotel's pier flagged down the boat for us, spoke to the driver and told us how much to pay. You see everyday life of the locals... More

Thps is a great way to see the other side of Bangkok that most tourist will never see. A lot of the canals were clogged with boats and thevarious styles of housing from gorgeous to very run down was evident. A lot of boat traffic carring goods from clothing to fresh vegetables to fish was available if you carred to... More

Lots of fun cool air rushing by, so many thing to see and you can use them as a short cuts around Bangkok so you don't have to sit in the traffic. Print out the maps before you leave, makes it cheaper to travel as many drop you near train stations or the bus stops. Buses are not air conditioned

A great attraction years ago, now a tourist trap. Be aware that these long-tail boat owners never do what was agreed upon before. That is the reason the want you to pay up the full amount before you board. The so called floating market they promise you to see, is nothing else than one or two boats selling expensive tourist...

Having been to Bangkok a number of times over the years, and on this occasion passing through following a trip to Cambodia, we wanted to do something to fill part of the day, other than revisiting Wats and Palaces. There are many organised klong tours that will take you to the sights, but we really just wanted a ride around... More

a fantastic way to see the city from the river point of view, ducking behind the main river you get a look at how other purple live, a great way to spend an hour or so

Very cheap and regular service 9-22 Baht. Make sure you get in a boat that is facing in the right direction. Be aware that you must change boats at Pratnum and keep hold of you ticket as you'll need to pay again! A detailed map of all the stops is on line to print and the site will also calculate... More

After reading reviews and recommendations tried this adventure, took some finding the correct Pier to start with, may have been our taxi driver dropping us where he wanted us to take one the expensive private operators, more to his own advantage than our possibly. Finally found the public pier which was close by, 15 baht each for almost an hour... More
