A canal tour is a “must do” for people who like to see the traditional Thai ways of living and get a special feeling of Bangkok which can only be obtained by taking a canal tour in Bangkok.
Our tour will take you to the old capital in the Thonburi side, a more intimate way to look at the old Siam, with many stops to let you experience the historical, cultural and interactive lives of the local canal people. We take a small group on our teak boat to make an unforgettable journey with a mode of transportation that is now rarely used.
During our sustainable boat tour, you will enjoy magnificent views of lush greenery without leaving Bangkok. We will cruise along the orchards and farms right next to the city.
