Chaotic traffic, edgy lifestyles, crowded streets, buzzing neighborhoods and typically Asian scenes are what you come to expect from Bangkok, but in the midst of all the non-stop actiojn, also hides a city that allows you to enjoy a moment of peace and serenity, away from the stress of modern life. This Bangkok tour takes you along the beautiful canals of Bangkok to let you see another side of the city, one that never makes it to those must-see lists. Forget your guidebook – the real stuff comes from the mouths of the locals! Explore the most famous landmarks and those hidden gems on this day tour in Bangkok that requires you to travel by boat, bus and on foot!

You’ll begin this Bangkok tour by hopping on a local public bus and heading over to the Grand Palace. Strolling through the palace grounds feels like walking through an Asian version of Alice in Wonderland – the buildings are so beautiful they almost don’t feel real. But bet your bottom dollar, they’re real alright! Your local guide will tell you all about the history behind the Palace and the most sacred Buddhist temple in Thailand, Wat Phra Kaew. This place is considered to be the spiritual centre of the nation, making it a visit that you cannot afford to miss.

From one beautiful temple to another, you’ll move on to Wat Po, another temple that is integral to the Buddhist religion in Thailand. It’s home to the infamous golden reclining Buddha and is the birthplace of traditional Thai massage. This is one of the most popular things to do in Bangkok, and with our local guide to take your through the temples, you’ll hear all the secret stories and local knowledge about the place.

You’ll continue on this tour by walking down to the Chao Phraya River, or River of Kings, where you’ll board a longtail boat. The name of the river perfectly reflects this part of the tour; you’ll feel like royalty on your relaxing journey down the River of Kings! This is the reason why Bangkok is known as the ‘Venice of the East’, and you’ll explore this nickname further on this Bangkok boat tour as you glide through the network of ‘khlongs’, or canals. Many of the khlongs have been filled in over the years and converted into roads. These roads have turned into little Thai communities, and as you swoop through the waters you’ll discover insights into these little communities. This area of Bangkok feels like a world away from the busy streets and chaos, so this Bangkok canals tour is a welcome break from the bustling city centre!

Your tour will finish up as you glide back into port, from where you can continue to explore or your local guide will be happy to give you directions back to your accommodation. This tour shows you a truly unique side of the city that you won’t find on any of the other day tours in Bangkok, and it gives you the opportunity to visit both famous sights and hidden spots, exploring them through the eyes of a local.

Good to know Dress standard: Dress requirements to enter the Grand Palace are very strict following the recent passing of King Bhumibol Adulyadej. Please ensure you wear dark-coloured pants or skirts that are ankle-length, and a dark-coloured t-shirt, shirt, or blouse, and closed-toe shoes (no thongs or flip-flops). A respectable black or white collared shirt is what the Thais wear. If you are unable to wear black, you can pin a black bow on your arm, which we can supply to you free-of-charge. Please note the authorities will likely deny the entire group entry if anyone is not dressed appropriately.

Child Policy: Children between the ages of 6 and 11 inclusively are permitted on this tour at the rate listed above. Please select ‘child’ above when booking. Children below the age of 6 are not permitted on this tour.

Closure: The route of the klong (canal) tour may change depending on the water levels in individual klongs.
