Bangkok: Klongs (Canals) & Grand Palace Half Day Tour

Duration
4 Hours
Prices:
On request
  • Visit Wat Arun, the Temple of Dawn in Bangkok as part of your Thailand Vacation

Today, be met at your hotel by your guide and take a longtail boat through Bangkok's canals to discover the true heart of the city. Start with a ride along the Chao Phraya River, also known as the 'River of Kings'. Admire the passing skyline where glittering pagodas stand in the shadows of towering skyscrapers. The boat then turns off the main waterway and onto the canals, or 'klongs'. See why Bangkok is often called the 'Venice of the East', while cruising along the intricate network of canals. Capture glimpses of small villages on the water's edge and enjoy the slower pace of life away from the city centre.

Make a stop at the Royal Barge Museum. See the eight spectacular boats used by Thailand's royal family to mark special occasions. Carved from teak and intricately decorated with gold leaf and mosaics, the barges are a truly impressive sight.

Afterwards, return to the boat and cruise back onto the Chao Phraya for one final stop to see Wat Arun, a 79-metre-high pagoda built in a style similar to Angkor Wat. Meaning 'Temple of Dawn', Wat Arun is one Thailand's most beautiful temples and the perfect last stop on the day's tour.

Following your tour, you'll be transferred back to your hotel.
