We wanted to do the Klongs of Bangkok, but we had trouble to find a good start location where we could rent a long tail boat.
Finally a local person helped us: Mekhala River Cruise Pier, Oriental Pier, Khwaeng Bang Rak, Bangrak, Bangkok 10500, Thailand....More
We didn't plan on getting the long tail boat tour, kinda got tricked into it. We asked for directions to the pier where we could take the ferry at the gate of Temple of Reclining Buddha and the guard there explained something in a bad...More
This is part of the tour. We embarked at Chao Phraya River near the Grand Palace.
We went through Bangkok's canals which shows the culture, houses, small temples, animal creatures (komodo) and way of living of people living in Bangkok.
It is great experience and...More
We hired a long boat for over 2 hours to visit the klongs and it went into the back areas of Bangkok passing through floating homes, sometimes new and sometimes falling into the river. Truly amazing to seem them cooking crabs, fish, prawns and all...More
We came across a vendor on the steps of Wat Arun and asked if it were possible to have a Thornburi canal tour on a long tail boat for around 30 mins. The lady was very helpful and we negotiated a 40 min trip that...More

We booked an afternoon on the klongs having had a similar trip 30 years ago which I enjoyed and can remember vividly to this day. This time around, perhaps jaded after years of travel, I found it lacking in the type of sights that made...More
It is always a must when in Bangkok that we go by long tail-boat to the klongs, the man-made network of canals where modern development did not take place. Cruising through the klongs you get a real sense of how people in Bangkok used to...More
The khlong tours can start from several places, but I would recommend starting from “Central Pier” on the Chao Phraya River. It is directly under the bridge at the BTS (sky train) stop called “Saphan Taksin.”
You just go to any point where you see boat going and stops. There's no "official Klong tours". Some and actually many parts of klong network is not connected together and going around with single boat is not possible... More
You just go to any point where you see boat going and stops. There's no "official Klong tours". Some and actually many parts of klong network is not connected together and going around with single boat is not possible. However, in many junction points you just walk over the road bridge and you can continue from other side of the road.
