The canal boats despite what some reports have said are relatively cheap and an interesting way to get around limited parts of Bangkok. There is a difference between the public service and the guided tours. We had the public service trip. The canals aren't by...More

Touring the klongs belongs to nearly every tourist programme in Bankok. Our Tuk-tuk driver drove us to a small pier (saying there was no excursions to the Klong from Saphan Taksin Pier, which is wrong) and I knew already it was a trap. But after...More

I would definitely recommend the private canal tour, without stops at floating markets or other tourist traps. It’s worth the minimal amount of extra money to have the boat to yourself + captain. The khlongs around Bangkok are fascinating if you like photography. We were...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!
