Long Tail boat ride to Venice of the East

Our driver picks you up at your central Bangkok hotel and drives you to our main office, where you'll be greeted by your guide. Walk 300 meters from our office and board your long tail boat and venture on a scenic, one-hour canal tour into the canals in the old capital, Thon Buri. Experience the traditional life along the river and learn the historical, cultural, and local meaning that dwells along the canals. For hundreds of years the commerce of Thailand's communities flourished through the waterways, which is why Bangkok used to be called the Venice of the East. Explore a small town of teakwood houses on stilts and see the many contrasts of life here. If you're lucky, you can spot some wildlife on this ride, too. Local wildlife includes birds, turtles, catfish, and monitor lizards.

Be amazed by the view of its 70-meter-tall grand pagoda, beautifully decorated with tiny pieces of colored glass and colored Chinese porcelain. Climb up to the middle level of the grand pagoda and be rewarded with a beautiful view of the winding Chao Phraya River.

Wat Po Reclining Budhha Temple

Wind down the river by local ferry and experience one of the oldest and largest temples in Bangkok, Wat Po, featuring the famous Reclining Buddha gilded in gold. It's one of the longest in Thailand, measuring 46 meters, and one whose feet are beautifully inlaid with mother-of-pearl and carved with holy signs.

Flower Market & Lunch

Explore Bangkok's gigantic Flower Market, one of the world's biggest, and you're sure to be captivated by the kaleidoscope of smells and colors from the millions of flowers and vegetables for sale here.
