Klongs, Bangkok

#5 of 30 in Parks in Bangkok
Take a tour of Bangkok's Klongs--the canals and waterways that crisscross the Thai capital--in a private long-tail boat. Admire the buildings which teeter on the edge of the banks, catch a glimpse of locals going about their daily lives, grab a cold beer or some refreshing fruit from a passing boat vendor, and spot the birds, fish, and other wildlife that thrive even in the heart of the city. In addition to being one of the best ways for sightseers to explore Bangkok, the klongs provide some of the quickest public transport here, avoiding the congestion that plagues the city's roads. Make Klongs a centerpiece of your Bangkok vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Bangkok online trip maker .

    Not easy to find the point of meeting you. Send you has a taxi meter once on-site you are welcomed by the driver - sign of recognition a number provided by the organisation - then depending on the option chosen amazing 2 hours and more through the klongs. Certainly the visit of the most accomplished BKK Klongs. Do the same with children

    You can visit Bangkok in different ways, organized with a group, with the bicycle with a guide etc but also from the small side arms of the great river. A totally different, but impressive sight on the other areas of Bangkok. How to do? Simply go to the great river and local bootverhuutders speaks there. Makes sure they bring you to the klongs and not the main river. A must!

Where to stay in Bangkok

As a commercial, cultural, and tourist center, Bangkok offers a great diversity of accommodations. For long established and chain hotels, try Sukhumvit Road and the areas surrounding the central Siam Square, where budget and luxury rooms are available in abundance. If you are looking for the backpacker zone, head to Khaosan Road, where you'll find a wealth of inexpensive, simple accommodations surrounded by businesses tailored to traveler's needs. Consider staying at a guesthouse to gain a deeper understanding of Thai life.
