On this sightseeing tour of Bangkok's canals (or khlongs, as they are known locally) you will travel by a motorized boat on the Chao Phraya River to see the serene family homes and temples dotted along the waterways which inspired Bangkok's reference as the "Venice of the East".

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2014

These were the must see sights of Bangkok. I enjoyed arriving via a wooden long boat that roger Moore had been in. Our guide was excellent and was very informative.
