What To Expect

An afternoon away from the skyscrapers and big city life. On this cultural small group tour, you'll enjoy a river cruise on a longtail boat along the bustling river and backwaters of Bangkok. Watch as people go about their life on the klongs and then visit Wat Arun – the vast riverside Temple of Dawn.The canals – or klongs – in the historic Thonburi district are heaving with locals in the afternoon. Boats glide along, laden with fruit and vegetables that will be sold to canal-side homes. It's an impressive cultural spectacle. You'll drift slowly along the Chao Phraya River so you can take in the sights as well as lush vegetation long-gone from the centre.After the cruise, you'll dock near Wat Arun to visit this impressive temple. The porcelain encrusted Khmer-style central prang is, at 80 metres, one of the most famous landmarks in the Bangkok skyline. You'll can stroll the grounds, admiring the vast yakshas – temple guardian statues – and the frescoed and flower-filled prayer halls.
