We hired a private long boat to take us into the Klongs and to stop off at one of the floating markets. It was fascinating to see a side of Bangkok that is somewhat hidden from the passing tourist.
We were accompanied by a local Thai lady who came along for a ride, (probably funded by us!) who had never taken the tour herself. What started out as apprehension as to who this intruder was, turn out to be such a brilliant experience! She was getting us to try all sorts of food at the floating markets and encouraging us to make Krathongs with the locals in preparation for Loi Krathong that evening!
On the home stretch down the Choa Praya River back to the pier, be prepare for a rather bumpy ride...! The river water tastes horrid! ;)
Overall, a trip not to be excluded from your travels in Bangkok.
