What You Can Expect

Bangkok Rice Barge Afternoon Cruise

Bangkok Rice Barge Afternoon Cruise

A friendly driver will collect you from your Bangkok hotel and transport you vial long-tail cruise boat along the canals of Bangkok. You’ll float past picture-perfect canal houses and transfer onto a restored rice barge for a memorable trip along the Chao Phraya river. Sit back, relax and soak up the Thai scenery as you enjoy soft drinks and local fresh fruit on board. 

Because city residents still relay on waterways for transportation and commerce, you’ll see locals going about their daily routines and likely witness rice and other merchandise being moved along the waterways while you float on your Bangkok sightseeing cruise.

A great introduction to Bangkok! Such a relaxing way to begin to understand such a busy city.
The tour was very well organised and the wonderful array of exotic fruits for us to try was really impressive, as were the seemingly unlimited delicious Mai Tais. Staff were friendly and ensured our trip was truly memorable. Highly recommended.

Nice trip and a great way to see Bangkok. Our guide was very humoristic and informative which made the trip even better. I also liked the drinks and the mixed fruits on the way back. I can highly recommend this cruise for everyone coming to Bangkok.

Fantastic tour! Confirmed to hotel so no worrying if they would turn up. Picked up promptly and dropped at pier. Passed over to tour guide who was the loveliest man you could ever meet. A real gem! Loved the sights and very informative. Had the tour to ourselves as a group of 4 so felt like VIPs as we passed a few boats rammed with people! Felt guilty as we couldn't eat enough of the fruit buffet to do it justice as there was enough to feed a boat full.
The river was not dirty as some reviews would lead you to believe.
A lovely relaxing afternoon and a break from padding the streets and shops. Worth every baht!
