In the morning, meet and greet at your hotel.
You will travel by local transport to the Chao Praya River. Today you will discover the real Thai life by boat. Throughout the years, the canals of Bangkok have traversed by a dizzying array of exotic watercraft, from the omnipresent long tail boat to the noodle vending canoe.
Your journey begins as a Chao Phraya River Express Boat takes you on a relaxing cruise north to the town of Nonthaburi. You take a short stroll in this village where you visit a local market. Then you return to the pier, to board a long tail boat bringing you into a canal system unlike those found closer to the city. Peaceful scenes of rural canal life will transport you to a simpler, more innocent time, when the days passed slowly and the worries were few. After an hour, the appearance of rocket boats signals a dramatic change of pace. Instant thrills ensue as high speed maneuvering through narrow canals will bring out the ‘inner child’ in all. Another long tail boat will bring you to a local restaurant where lunch will be served. Afterwards a transfer back by local transport to your hotel in Bangkok
