Thonburi’s Khlongs

A khlong is a canal on the central plain of Thailand. In addition of Chao Phraya, Bangkok has a large number of Khlongs. Most are located in Thonburi district, on the west bank of Chao Phraya, where the Wat Arun lies. The navigation along these khlongs is also one of Bangkok's most famous attractions and a good opportunity for tourists to enjoy the whole panorama of City of Angels or to discover a part of capital often not visible, like old houses on stilts, children playing or swimming in murky waters, small crocodiles and giant fish. The Thonburi side of the capital is where tourists usually perform the classic boat ride to admire the part of Bangkok which remained still quite authentic, with wooden houses on stilts and children playing in the water. You can hire a long-tail boat to go for a ride along Thonburi's khlongs in almost all the piers along the Chao Phraya River, contacting the pier's desks or negotiating directly with the boat owner. Three good places to rent a long-tail are the Sathorn Central Pier, under the Taksin Bridge, the Oriental Pier and Phra Arthit Pier. The cost is about 800-1,200 THB per hour of navigation. Bargaining is normal, do not forget to be clear about the destination and duration of your trip for not having unpleasant surprises on the price.Read More
