Know More about this tour

You'll be picked up from your centrally located Bangkok hotel and travel by long-tail cruise along the Bangkok canals. Travel through exotic flora and picturesque canal houses, before joining a converted rice barge cruise on the Chao phraya river. All you need to do on this tour is sit back, relax and take in the amazing Thai scenery. Soft drinks and local fruits will be served on-board.

The rivers and canals around Bangkok serve as a natural highway for many local Thai people going about their everyday business. The people of Bangkok still depend on the waterways to transport their merchandise, in particular rice, as the canals are linked to the rice fields.

    Bortkastad tid och pengar, fruktansvärt ljud på båda båtarna. Trodde inte att det skulle bli sämre på båt 2, men både ljud och Engelskan gick inte att tyda! Söt varm saft som inte smaka gott😵

    A driver came to pick us up at our hotel which was very easy. We were taken on a longboat and navigatied along the river and finally on one of the many canals. At a Jetty we transferred to a Rice barge to return to our storting point. We were offered Some fruits and refreshments. Total trip took about two hours. He first guides english was difficult to understand. The guide on the Rice barge had nothing to tell, except she showed us all the five star hotels at the quay side of bangkok

    We had to scramble since the trip was canceled with no explanation a few hours before we were scheduled to leave. Still waiting to hear from trip advisor if we will get our money back

    We took the afternoon cruise and were picked up on time from our hotel. The shuttle van brought us to River City Bangkok, where we boarded a small boat. The first half of the cruise (1 hour) consisted of the small boat taking us around a few canals that connect with the Chao Phraya River. We switched to the rice barge for the second half of the trip (1 hour), which took us down the Chao Phraya and during which we were served fruit and juice. It’s worth noting that the River is very busy and you can expect to get a small amount of water sprayed on you from the waves, when riding in the small boat. The guides spoke English well enough but didn’t offer a lot of information about the history of Bangkok, Thai people, or other facts. The cruise is more for sightseeing rather than learning. We returned back to River City Bangkok where we ended our cruise. (Some of the waterfront hotels have pickup and drop off directly from their hotel dock.) We opted not to take the shuttle back to our hotel and instead, made our way through Chinatown and then up to Khaosan Road. All in all, it was a good way to spend time on the water and hang out on a side of the city with several options of things to do.

    An enjoyable afternoon spent on the river. Hotel pick up arrived on time and with a couple of more pick ups on the way we still got to start point with 20 mins to spare. Trip on the long tail boat was enjoyable with plenty of good photo opportunities. Transfer to the Rice Barge was smooth and the fruit and juice drinks were good. Chatted with people from different countries in various stages of their holidays and all seemed pleased with the afternoon. All in all a nice way to fill in a few hours of the afternoon. Would recommend.

    We only had a limited amount of time so were looking for a tour that would provide us with a good overview of Bangkok in only a few hours. This tour really our needs. We were picked up from our hotel and taken to the dock where we boarded a long boat for a tour of the canals. After about an hour we were transferred to a larger boat that took us for a nice tour of the main river in Bangkok. We were served drinks and snacks including local fruits. A guide on board pointed out all the sights along the river. After we docked back at the pier we were transported back to our hotel. We were very pleased with the entire experience.

    Vom Hotel wurden wir abgeholt und danach ging es zuerst zum Hafen. Am Hafen hat es eine wunderschöne Aussicht auf die Skyline von Bangkok. Danach hiess es einsteigen in ein Langboot. Wir fuhren vorbei an vielen Sehenswürdigkeiten, Tempel, Paläste, Statuen und durch die Wasserstrassen, wo Einheimische ihre Häuser direkt am Wasser gebaut haben. Am Schluss hiess umsteigen auf das grössere Boot, wo uns Getränke und ein Obstbuffet erwartete (sehr lecker). Danach ging gemütlich Richtung Hafen. Sehr schöne Tour.
