If you get the time (it passes so quickly doesn't it) to see along the klongs it is one of the best ways to see a more authentic Bangkok and Thailand. I particularly like the Klong Markets you find here and there. My sister is Thai and has taken me to these fabulous places and having the luxury of Having... More

4 years ago on a visit ti Bangkok I went on my first Klong tour in a long tail boat. What an experience so different to what I have experienced anywhere. The fun of the boat ride, crazy propulsion and steering system, but, IT WORKS. The poverty of some of the klong dwellers was an eye opener but they all... More

We booked the klong (canal) tour on-line ahead of our trip and later found that it had been sub-contracted at least twice to smaller companies, each of which obviously took a slice, so we overpaid large. However, it's the kind of thing which interests me and so it gave us a glimpse of life on the canals where the regular... More

I had never heard of the Klongs until I boarded a Longtail boat and off we went. Through the lock and then transported into another world. It was fascinating to see all the wooden houses all lined next to each other all on stilts. Each one different to its neighbour. Some in great condition others just holding on. The tour... More

This is one of the cool things we did while in Bangkok this time; rent one of the private Klongs for the four of us and go around the circle where the people live along the river and small causeways. The boat itself is so low and close to the water that it will make you think that you will... More

A fantastic trip around the canals of the city . The previous reviews sum it up nicely . Make sure you negotiate a good price . You should pay about 1000 bht for one hour and I'm sure people will have got it for less than that .

After a quick lunch at a local restaurant, we went for a short walk and then we boarded our long tail boat for a tour of the canals (klongs). We boarded our long tail boat on the Chao Phraya River and across the river we could see the Temple of Dawn (Wat Arun). After a short ride across the river,... More

Took a Klong with a friend in Bangkok for a one hour tour. It was very refreshing and lovely, you get to see both sides of Bangkok as you get to see the poorer neighborhoods as well as the dance riverside buildings. The main river is very fast and wild which offers for a great and refreshing experience while the... More
