NOTE: This tour departs from the Co van Kessel Tha Phra Chan office.  situated in between Khao san Road and the Grand Palace.

Ride a classic longtail boat during this 2-hour canal (klong) tour. Explore the ancient waterways of Bangkok and see how locals live along her famous canals. This tour is perfect for the non-cyclist, photo enthusiast, and anybody with a curious mind.

Historically, canals have been the expressways of choice for the Thai people, resulting in the designation ‘Venice of the East’ being bestowed upon Bangkok by western visitors. Join us for a two hour exploration along the ancient waterways of Thonburi where we observe the many elements of the ‘canal life’ that once characterized all of Bangkok before wheeled motor vehicles came into prominence.

After a short walk from our office to the pier, we will board a longtail boat to take us across the Chao Phraya River to Thonburi. Here, we will enter the canal system and see an abundance of interesting wooden homes on stilts, temples and markets oriented towards life along the water. En route, we will make a few short stops to explore some of these sights up close.

We cycle at a leisurely pace and make frequent stops at local, interesting destinations along the way. Children as young as five years and seniors as old as 80 years have joined our tour with no issues. That being said, we do cycle through narrow alleyways and upon raised footpaths over water, so a certain level of balance and comfort on a bike is required.

The 'wai' is the traditional thai greeting.
