It´s well worthwhile to take a long tail boat and tour the longs. Its about an hours trip. Although during decades the area ha changed and in some cases become too modern, there is still real life going on.

This was an exciting adventure. The boat was really fast and there were some waves from the other boats.

We have done this many times and have seen buildings come and go. it is a great way to see how people live along the klongs, the shopfronts of their houses, water taxis and long boats taking people along the widing waterways on which much of Bangkok is situated.

We've been a bit tricked and in the end we finished in one of these boats. I have to say that I didn't felt secure at all for the whole duration. The man guiding the boat did not speak English at all so we just had to wait for the journey to end because there was no one there to... More

Wind in your hair, river mist sprayed on your face - that usually defines your boating sojourn. A cheap and convenient mode of travel. Accords you the chance to rub shoulders with the locals... almost all in a hurried frenzy. There is an element of risk to safety... besides speeding that long tail boats are renown for, most vessels do... More

Kindly greeted by our guide to take us to the canals. We got to see some of the locals while walking through the back streets to get to the boat. Getting on board is not easy. so it probably wouldn't suitable for disabled people. Once on board our trip begins. Seeing monitor lizards swimming beside the boat and families waving... More

We arrived on a weekday, and was promptly directed to, by a policeman, to hire a tuk tuk to take us to a hard sell tourist desk where they were selling boat tickets for 1000 baht per person for a long fast boat ride, where you need to wear life jackets. This would take us to a floating market, or... More

The klongs of Bangkok, invluding the Floating Market, are a very interesting part of Bangkok. Take a 2 hour trip on a longtail boat (about 600 bath per person) and enjoy a nice visit of the Floating Market and the amazing network of Klongs, where people live at and on.
