Klongs, Bangkok

(3.8/5 based on 1,400+ reviews on the web)
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 part of your Bangkok vacation plans using our Bangkok trip generator.

  • For "adventure" travelers a must do. The boats are actually busses carrying the Thai's to work and around some parts of the city. I use it mostly from MRT station "Petchabury" on to go to Central Worl...  more »
