Backwaters of Bangkok Long-tail Boat Cruise with Optional Temples Tour

Select Date and Travelers
3 travelers
Get a feel for traditional life in Bangkok away from the high-rise urban area during a longtail boat tour of the city's 'khlongs' (small canals). You'll travel with a guide who shares the history of Bangkok, from its days as a sleepy town on stilts to the hyper-modern city of today. Along the canals, visit hard-to-access sites like a temple, a unique art gallery. You can choose to extend your day with an optional guided tour of the Grand Palace and Wat Pho. This tour is limited to 15 people for a small-group experience. (Start from 01 June 2018, Share Small Group Experience minimum 3 person/maximum 9  person)
  • Venture off the tourist track to explore Bangkok’s canals
  • Ride a traditional long-tail boat to a hidden temple and an art gallery 
  • Optional combo tour includes a visit to Grand Palace and Wat Pho
  • Small-group tour limited to nine for a more personalized experience
What to Expect
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.
