We got the boat back to Pratunam Pier from Wat Saket. It was a Sunday and the service was very easy with a few boats and not much passengers. Try to avoid rush hours . Its crazy time!!

You must take a tour of the Klongs (canals) while in Thailand to experience a way of life. Its a pleasant ride and you get to experience history and way of life that has survived in families for generations. You might also spot a river lizzard and get to feed large (and happy) catfish!

Don't miss taking a ride through the klongs (canals) to see how the locals live on the river. It is fascinating to see the mix of beauty and filth. Just do it.

We took a private boat from opposite Wat Arun and paid around 600 baht per head for a 1 hour tour of the Klongs Not worth it - pretty dirty water, dilapidated houses If you are doing the floating market, this one is simply not worth it Even otherwise - just drop it - not worth it at all

We tried this route as it's the easiest way to go to the Grand Palace from Pratunam. It's definitely a must try experience and very affordable. In fact they didn't charge us on our way to Grand Palace but on our way back we insisted to pay. Cons: 1. I believe we passed thru their canals (brown stinky water) 2.... More

An amazing trip where you can see a new side of Bangkok. Wildlife, fish, houses on the river, temples, everyday life. I am glad I could see this hidden side of Bangkok. Comfortable boatride.

Klong means canal in Thai. So this is a journey to the canals to see the way of life of locals. We got a private boat which costed 3000 baht, quite expensive. We used this to get to the Grand Palace. It was chilly during our trip and you can get splashed with water.
