I've looked through the 'terrible' reviews and it looks like most people are describing a canal tour, not Klongs for getting from A-B. Yes you get tourist traps but if you do your homework you can use the system like the locals and get from...More

This is an easy and varied-speed trip to take and very popular, cvering markets, with a stop off at a craft-market, passing in the canals other klongs selling fresh fruit, flowers, fish and craft goods. A cultural must!

It is interesting to see how many people still live and earn a living on the canals and other waterways of Bangkok. Many live in shacks along the waterways, and others have wooden shops which are tied to the shore and go up and down...More

You should not visit Bangok without taking a trip into the Klongs - the narrow canals off the main river. The Klongs are full of stilted houses over the water, where you can see life still happening. The best way to experience this area is...More

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

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!

Klongs are like roads and are a thoroughfare for boat traffic. You can go to the touristy area of Bangkok's Klongs and stop at eateries etc. There are some people selling things, nothing you can't get elsewhere.

Not really! There are very limited chances to shop en route, though there are a few vendors stationed along the banks, and the occasional vendor out on a boat.
