Bangkok Half Day Tours:
HD106: Thonburi Canals & Wat Arun Tour
1,050 - 2,500
See a different way of life on the Thonburi backwaters and canals. Visit Bangkok's most iconic temples Wat Arun!
Be prepared for a striking contrast as we board a long tail motorboat for a trip on the canals into the Thonburi area of the city. Bangkok is in an ongoing process of rampant modernization and transformation, but the Thonburi canals still retain a laid back charm and a glimpse of a more traditional Bangkok way of life which still very much exits today! We will board the boat on the Chao Phraya River and you will be taken along the main river to The Bangkok Noi Canal, this is the turn off point to Thonburi backwaters and canals. Old water side wooden homes, quaint and quiet temples and even locals still selling wares from small rowing boats can all be seen here! Following the boat trip we visit Wat Arun, one of Bangkok's most iconic and recognizable temples. Note on the private tour we will also pay a visit to Pak Klong Talad (Bangkok flower market)
