Bangkok (Laem Chabang), Thailand-port

Bangkok is the capital and largest city in Thailand. It began as a small trading center on the west bank of the Chao Phraya River serving the Ayutthaya Kingdom, the precursor of modern Thailand which existed from 1350 to 1767. The city has vastly modernized and undergone numerous changes, including the introduction of transportation and utility infrastructure in the reigns of King Mongkut and King Chulalongkorn, and quickly developed into the economic centre of Thailand.

Bangkok Canals & the Royal Barges

Seated Tour Regent ChoiceMeal

Duration: 8 1/2 hours

Tour Code: LCH-014

Explore daily life in Bangkok during this picturesque boat trip through the city.

Depart the pier for the 2-hour drive to Bangkok, where upon arrival you will board an air-cooled boat for a scenic cruise along the canals, or klongs, of the Chao Praya River. Along the way, you will see the small wooden houses that rise on stilts from the water. You will also encounter many long, flat boats laden with exotic produce and colorful fare plying the waterways, and carrying on trade as they did centuries ago.

Your tour along these fascinating waterways includes a stop at the beautiful Temple of Dawn, or Wat Arun, and Royal Barge Shed where the impressively ornate ceremonial barges are stored when not in use. Following your time at the Royal Barge shed, you will transfer to a local restuarant for lunch.

After lunch, you will retunr to the pier, making a brief stop for shopping en route.

Please note: This tour will operate by air-cooled express boats throughout. Although the tour does not involve extensive walking, pontoons must be crossed in order to embark the boats. As a result, this tour is not recommended for guests with limited mobility or guests who utilize a wheelchair.
