Backwaters of Bangkok Tour (half day):
Meet your guide and group of no more than nine people in central Bangkok and climb aboard a traditional long-tail boat. Watch Chao Phraya River traffic go by and get fantastic views of modern skyscrapers before cruising into the city’s smaller canals, known as khlongs. Learn about Bangkok’s history and culture from your guide, and visit two hard-to-reach places—Wat Khun Chan temple and the Artist’s House, a restored Thai home transformed into an inviting art gallery and workshop.
Backwaters of Bangkok and Temples Tour (full day):
Make a full day of it by upgrading for lunch at a local restaurant and a guided visit to the Grand Palace and nearby Wat Pho. Admire classical Thai architecture and learn about regal customs as you walk through the former royal Siamese court, then marvel at the giant, gold-plated reclining Buddha that resides in Bangkok's most famous temple.
