My travel partner and myself, together with relatives who are currently working inThailand decided to have a catch-up in Bangkok recently. Part of this catch up involved taking the canal tour of the old town waterways.
This was a delightful way to spend an hour or so. We toured around the canals where houses are built directly on the water and people are happily living their lives. Parts of the canal were teeming with fish and there was lizards and other critters living among the homes. It was interesting to imagine how they built the houses as some of them were quite old.

This is an enjoyable little trip, worth doing.

I recently had the pleasure of taking a private tour with the Thai Tour Guide company and had the lovely Ms Nhong escort me. We started off in Chinatown saw 2 temples one a Chinese Buddhist and the other a Thai Buddhist temple and Ms Nhong explained the difference between them. Then off to the Flower market where I was presented with a traditional flower necklace. Then we walked through the market noting all the various types of flowers being arranged.
We arrived at the pier and caught a canal boat and saw the various types of houses and temples along the river banks and my guide Ms Nhong explained in detail the various happenings along the way. We also stopped off at a temple complex which housed the crematorium and people were there offering there respects to their departed loved ones. It was very beautiful. The highlight was when we visited the Artists house for lunch and watched an amazing cultural puppet performance like I have never seen before. This tour is not to be missed when visiting Bangkok. Ms Nhong explained everything with lots of fun and was a delight to be with. This tour is suitable for young and old alike. Highly recommended.

There is nothing much new to do on Mondays after 10 years visiting Bangkok. We decided to go back to canals. Glad we did because Ms Joy certainly made the Day! Flexible, informative and caring lazy Monday. Worth of every baht

Visually interesting and colorful. Diverse architecture; mini komoto bra gone sunning themselves on the banks. Beautiful wood boats.

An eye opener to see the canals and the contraptions lining the canals. Experience it once but at your own risk. The water is unfortunately very polluted.

We took this tour which also included the Temple of Dawn stop and the Jim Thomson museum. This combination covers major attractions in Bangkok, and I highly recommend that every tourist took advantage of it. The canals show you real life of this exotic city, with the mix of poverty and wealth. The temple of Dawn is eye popping, a real architectural masterpiece, and the Jim Thompson museum tells a life story of the most unusual personality, an American millionaire, who built a silk empire and disappeared in the jungles without any trace in the 1960's. The tour was very educational, many interesting things to see and think of afterword's. Don't miss.

This cruise around the canals was a real eye-opener. I certainly would not be swimming in the water or eating anything out of it. There were some really nice houses and some that were close to falling into the water. We came across a man in a small boat who would stop and sell cooked food that he was making. Pretty spots around the canal and good to see,

I visited the Jim Thomson museum and couldn’t help but notice the boasts going past, and quickly worked out there is a canal boat stop nearby. It’s a great way to see another part of the city tourists usually don’t get to see - truly a worthwhile experience.

Costs 200 baht for the full day - so plan your time and stop along the route to see local temples and areas you may not usually get to see. Have fun!

Many visitors are unaware that Bangkok has an effective system of canal boats criss-crossing the city. For less than a dollar one-way you get to ride a canal boat that is faster then taxi or bus.

Have experienced many tours over the years. The latest was great, an adventure for us as a family. We took a smaller boat (not long boat) this time and it was more a cruise than a race (great). Fun to feed the catfish, cruise the canals and see how people still live waterside. The Wat Arun (temple of the dawn) is impressive and worth seeing at least once, but it will suck time out your boat trip. You can do it by taxi later when you are not paying for the boat to sit idle. To enter the canals at high water means travelling through locks, the boat pilots will sometimes try to tell you it is 'closed' and try to convince you to take a shorter (for them) route... but the locks open on demand although you might have to wait for the otherside to fill with boats first. this can take 10-15 minutes but is part of the experience.
