Great trip, stumbled on it by accident, went to the medical museum and ended up being asked by a local if we would like to go on this trip of the klongs waterways. Great views of the klongs by boat. You get to see how impoverished some of the Thai people are and how lavish some of the buildings are... More

Klong San Saeb is a canal that runs through the heart of Bangkok. Do a google search and you will find a great website explaining how it works. I have been visiting and living in Bangkok for the last 10 years and finally for the first time ever I got to try it out. Super cheap, efficient and quick. You... More

The Khlong taxi's are a fast way to move aboit Bangkok and a trip gives you an Intresting view of how Bangkok may have been in the old days. The smell of the water isn't always pretty, but you cannot have it all.

I was taken on one of these boats on my first trip over in 2011 from Watthana to Saphan Phanta Pier and fell in love with them. From the Pier it is a short Tuk Tuk ride to the Grand Palace and many more attractions. It is definatly the fastest and cheapest mode of travel if you can get used... More

Great way to get around downtown Bangkok. This type of transportation is unique to Bangkok. Making is a must do when your trip to Bangkok. Not only is this a unique experience to have but also it is a great cultural experience. Shows you how people in Bangkok used to get around before the roads were put in place.

This is a half day river cruise, you will not regret the sights you will see along the way. A great way to see the other side of Bangkok

We use it, when we go from Rambuttri to Siam Center. Is the fastest way - we paid 15 Baht - very cheap ! It is a good way to travel as there is no traffic jams! If seated, unable to see much as view is obscure by the mobile, plastic curtain used to prevent filthy water from splashing in... More

The klongs are wonderfull to look at, they give a bite of old Bangkok - the city of channels that don't exist anymore. But for the price of 2000 baths for 90 mintues expensive. Khlongs (river canals) are an interesting part of the city of Bangkok .However, you are likely to encounter a few of them at some point during... More
