On this beautiful 7-hour tour you will see the old Bangkok of the canals, the Thonburi khlongs, the town of teak-wood houses, the children playing in the water, the mailboxes on the river. This is not the classic tour on the canals but a trip that will take you to the non-tourist area and features

Plan

Few are the remaining operational channels that have not been closed to make roads … these channels are still now the pivot on which revolves the life of this part of the city still “slow”, from livable rhythm.

The Bangkok that does not run still lives here among the ancient canals of a beautiful ancient city in the city.

You will see flowing through the canals the many temples, large and small, ruined or renovated that still overlook the canals of Thonburi. Once more than places of prayer were first of all meeting places, children’s education and much more.

What you will see in Khlong Mon is a glimpse of everyday life, as it must have been many years ago, with elderly monks in faded orange tunics and slow-moving people who still throw a smile while cleaning the fish they will cook from there. just a few minutes.

Houses on stilts wide open in the sun, flowered balconies, swings on the river and a lot of real life, lots of wood and little cement, all very characteristic, if you want to see Bangkok with another eye, without ugly buildings and useless skyscrapers this is your trip.
