    What to Expect
    After hotel pickup from Bangkok's CBD, you're transferred to the pier to board a long-tail boat at the Chao Phraya River, aka the River of Kings. If you booked a private tour at booking, you'll get a more personalized look at your surroundings with your guide.

    Cruise across the river to the Thonburi side of Bangkok’s metropolis for a morning journey down the khlongs, or canals. The half-day tour offers insight on the critical importance these waterways played in the creation of Bangkok and the old capital of Thonburi, sometimes referred to as the Venice of the East. Many local communities today continue their dependence on the use of boats for goods and transportation, due to the lack of roads.

    During the scenic trip, learn about life along the canals and view notable landmarks such as Wat Arun, aka the Temple of Dawn. Pass by the Oriental Hotel, Royal Barges National Museum, and Holy Rosary Church, among others. 

    At the conclusion of the tour your guide will transfer you back to your hotel.
