Back To The Past Long-tail Boat Tour

Pattaya, Thailand
About Back To The Past Long-tail Boat Tour
Yearning for a day of escape from the bustling city streets of Pattaya? Hop on our minibus and after just a one hour drive you will find yourself in paradise! We present to you our amazing Back To The Past long-tail boat day tour that will bring you back in time and will show you the original Thailand. A truly unique holiday-experience! After the minibus ride from Pattaya / Jomtien you will enter the long-tail boat that will cruise you through the countless numbers of canals, locally known as klongs, that are found here. Breathe in the fresh air and appreciate the calm waters as you pass through the rice fields, remote old Thai villages and see how the locals live here surrounded by the water. Many of the local people have their own frog farms in front of their houses and you will see the people swimming in the water searching for all kinds of food that the canals have to offer. Nature lovers and birdwatchers can indulge themselves in these surroundings. Monitor lizards and snakes are very common in this area as well as some smaller animals. The diversity in (water) plants and flowers is enormous and you will see many different species of birds, from colorful songbirds to groups of storks. Another thing to look forward to is a visit to a several hundred years old market built right on the water where you will be provided with a local Thai lunch and where you can wander around and soak up the atmosphere; you will not see any other tourists here!
