The trip is an experience to see the life around the canals of Bangkok. Many old houses and few new ones, many temples... The water is not very clean though... Not that great.

A visit to Bangkok is not complete without a ride on the klongs. We took a longboat tour and spent a whole morning on the waterways. This is a good way to get a glimpse into a different way and pace of life. It is also a welcome change from the traffic jams on the highways. As there is no... More

We went on a hour tour with the 3 of us along the Klongs,it was a great way to see the city sights and see how some of the locals live on the water, just watch out for the spray of dirty river water.

So the canals connect quite a bit of Bangkok, alas not so many of the tourist attractions. But when you're doing something that's connected by the canal boat, this is the definite way to go. They're quite speedy, and even in peak summer, you're not going to feel that heat. At first glance, getting in and out might seem a... More

A trip along the klongs is a great way to see how many of the locals live in Bangkok. It always seems so much cooler on the water, and is a nice way to relax and sight-see at the same time.

This line is actually a great local secret because most tourists are concerned about the nasty water conditions. The Klongs are filthy but this method of transportation more than makes up for the bad smells and trash. It is one of the best ways to access the Golden Mount, Kaoh San Road, Grand Palace without taking a taxi. It extends... More
