If you are looking for an authentic Thai thing to do, canal tour is the one! Because boats on canals were used as transport traditionally, many interesting sites are along the water way. Our tour stops at: Morning Fresh Produce Market(Weekend altered with a Riverside Floating Market), Orchid Nursery in Green Rush, Hidden Forest Temple, Traditional Thai House (the Artist's House). We can also arrange custom tours around water ways. Please make sure to email or call us to reserve a boat before your tour date.

Excellent, relaxing tour

A great way to see less visited areas of the city. Khing was an excellent and informative tour guide, we really enjoyed her. We were shocked at how few other tourists we saw.

Very friendly guide with lots of interesting information. The western part of Bangkok is through channels very interesting and quiet. With a small group of people (we were 4) and nice teak ship, we were very pleased and highly recommend to other travelers Pandan Tour. Velmi příjemný průvodce se spoustou zajímavých informací. Západní část Bangkoku je díky kanálům velmi zajímavá... More

The trip through the canals is enjoyable, relaxing and educational. It was great to get away from the hustle bustle of the downtown area and see real people going about the business of daily living. Our guide, Nui, was wondeful ! She is a retired school teacher and speaks fluent English. She gave us a priceless education on the culture... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our canal adventure despite the rain showers on the day that we went. Our guide, Marisa, was very knowledgeable and was able to answer all our questions. Every stop added some new dimension to our experience of Bangkok: the local food market, 2 very different wats (temples), the orchid farm and the puppet show. Our lunch of... More

Hello Paul S, Thank you for your excellent review of our little boat tour here on Tripadvisor.com. Just like the post office, rain or shine we at Small Teak Boat Canal Adventure still run our small boat operation. It is still pretty safe here on the canal with some light rain, and if it is too much storm, we usually... More

It was amazing. Nui met me by sky train and walked to the canal with me explaining the neighborhood and prepping me for our trip. All scheduled around my time. Once in the canal I saw things that I never could have imagined. Nui showed me local places and cultural experiences I could have never seen myself. We went to... More

Really enjoyed our tour of Bangkok canals to experience a slice of real Bangkok. Authentic, interesting, easy. Our guide Tee was awesome. He was extremely knowledgeable and went the extra mile to make sure we were very well taken care of. I would highly recommend this tour. Very special.

The experience of visiting Bangkok sites via long boat is good, and with the exception that it's definitely a stretch to call the market where we had lunch to be "floating", it was definitely fun to see sights we might not have otherwise visited, such as Forest Temple” (Wat Pa Chaeng Lane). Our guide -- well, not so much. Maybe... More

Our guide Mod was very helpful and friendly, as was our boat driver. Everything was explained well, including local history and customs. We were even taught how to say a few Thai phrases. We were kept hydrated throughout the tour with bottles of water. The pace of the tour was perfect and even though there was rain, it didn't spoil... More
