A great way to see the culture up close

Great way for getting around the canals and seeing the houses on the riverbanks up close lots of ghettos just sitting about in the sun,

Have been to the klongs twice on a long tail boat and would like to go again. This is authentic Bangkok. Amazing little canals and the incredible houses on the sides. One time we got to see a huge dragon lizard swim right next to our boat and climb up the stairs of the canal. It was great :).

Jan 31 I have done this tour before and wanted to do it again. There is a new twist. Just outside a monastery, the long tail boat will stop for the driver to pick up a loaf of rolls. He hands it to us, and we break it up and throw it into the river. Immediately the river boils with... More

Really great authentic experience to walk or bike along the river and experience daily life along the river. People live, work, fish and relax in the Klongs.

It doesnt really matter where its going - just jump on one of the Klong boats - literally as you must climb over the sides into the bench seats - and hang on to your hats as the driver hits the gas and gives you one of the most exciting boat rides you'll ever experience. Locate the little handles on... More

We took the 1.5 hour trip, which we really enjoyed. Keep an eye out for the large monitor lizards swimming in the klongs or basking in the sun.

Hop aboard a klong boat and see Bangkok from another perspective. Also, one can learn the routes and possibly cut travel/commuting time across the city
