Best Boating Tours in Bangkok

A major commercial and capital hub of Thailand, Bangkok is an amazing place to explore, relax, and shop and much more. The River Chao Phraya, flows through it and there is a lot of activity and local hustle bustle around it, with fish markets and the floating market (on banana boats) selling vegetables etc. There are many boating tours available in Bangkok, where you can experience the three in one floating market, the Elephant Croc show and the Rose garden as a day activity with a gondola ride along the canal and witnessing the busy market streets next to it selling goodies to its customers local and otherwise.

 

Fresh local cuisine and its snack items are plenty in Bangkok by the banks of the river and you can access these on your boat tours and makes for a special experience in itself where you get to interact with the locals and explore their markets and their local goodies . There is also biking near the floating markets in Bangkok, where you can disembark from your Gondola and explore the city and its variant moods and places in a bike ride.

 

There is a Bangkok sightseeing tour in boat, ferry and a Tuk Tuk, where you can ride along the canals in a taxi boat and explore old Chinatown, then head towards the largest flower market and then to the Wat Po or known as the Reclining Buddha. There is plenty to see in the old city of Bangkok with its River Kwai Bridge, the ride through its historic train track, the tour of the Grand Palace or the getaway at Klong Saun market or the more quiet and unpopulated village tour at Klong Mahasawat which gives an unprecedented view of a village life and gives you a peek into its orchid farming which is one of the largest in the world.
