Avoid a rip off. 500 Bath maximum for 1,5 hour. I recommend to book a tour in a small tour Office and not in the hotel. Try to see the fleet market in the weekend.

A great way to see both the city and the main canals. You can find them covered if it is too hot. Smaller ones can negotiate the small canals but this is a great and inexpensive way to tour the "venice" of the east city....More

Now if you want to see what the locals get up to then a ride on a ferry down a klong will be the go. This is a great experience which will highlight the differences between lifestyles. A noisy smoke bellowing ferry with the guy...More

Never book a Klong Tour via a Taxi/Tuktuk-driver or anyone who approaches you in public. This is true for any other offerings. We experienced a Klong Tour near the Grand Palace by undergoing exactly the above stated mistake. The tour wasn't worth the 500 Baht...More

I've looked through the 'terrible' reviews and it looks like most people are describing a canal tour, not Klongs for getting from A-B. Yes you get tourist traps but if you do your homework you can use the system like the locals and get from...More

It is interesting to see how many people still live and earn a living on the canals and other waterways of Bangkok. Many live in shacks along the waterways, and others have wooden shops which are tied to the shore and go up and down...More

The khlong tours can start from several places, but I would recommend starting from “Central Pier” on the Chao Phraya River. It is directly under the bridge at the BTS (sky train) stop called “Saphan Taksin.” Have fun!

You just go to any point where you see boat going and stops. There's no "official Klong tours". Some and actually many parts of klong network is not connected together and going around with single boat is not possible... More
