A boat tour of the Klongs and the river is a must. If you don't have travel agent familiar with the options or if you aren't working with a local travel agency have your hotel make the arrangements. Any of the Klong tours will be enjoyed by the entire family. Lare submission due to extended overseas travel April-July

For only a very few baht this is a great way to see Bangkok beyond the tourist areas and travel as the locals do. We travelled 30 minutes from Sukhumvit Soi 3 to a suburban shopping area where we saw one other western face in a few hours of wandering around. Some agility is required to get on and off,... More

We went from Bangkapi mall to Central world using Klong boat. It was a good experience but prepare yourself for a long ride and it serves many stops. On some boats, it is advisable to sit in the middle as the persons who sit on either side of the boat will have to hold and handle of the curtain on... More

Tourist information does not mention the canal network and the boats that transport people around them. It is fast and traffic free and shows another angle to Bangkok. If you are in Kho San road area it is a nice 15 min walk along the canal to near the Golden Dome (worth visiting) to get a boat into centre

What a fun, exciting way to see Bangkok. The Klongs can really boot along the canals. Such a unique way to travel, so cheap, so easy and great, great fun. Put it on your list of to do's for sure.

We decided to do a two hour Klong tour in a long boat. We negotiated a two hour trip with no stops as we were not really interested in being off loaded at the very touristy floating market. We certainly went down some out of the way Klongs. It really gave some insight into the how the poorer people in... More

Cheap and fast they can take you to many points on the river. Less comfortable than the bigger taxi like boats but faster. Try to wear something waterproof as the waves may cause water splashing on you.

Locals use this mode of transport quite regularly since it is cheaper and faster than tuk tuks or cabs. It was a thrilling experience for me since i didn't expect the klongs to move so fast and stop so abruptly. It was unusual way to explore the city and i thoroughly enjoyed it except for the dirty water that kept... More
