Even as a seasoned traveler to Bangkok, I enjoy taking a longtail boat trip down the khlongs. And I especially enjoy taking first time visitors. They always enjoy it. Bangkok is not all about it's sophisticated urban jungle, fine dining restaurants, and inner city congestion....More

while not a "beautiful" ride in a boat, it is very interesting to see how much of this city is built around the canals, and it is a relaxing way to spend some time after running around the city.

Big boat in small dirty water, nothing special, if you go, take a ride to the floating market or to Jim Thompson's house

Want to avoid traffic jams? Get a bit of air? Take these "Klong waterbuses" as I call them. They get you to the main city points in Bangkok in a very quick and easy way. And dead cheap. Just close your mouth during the trip...More

An alternate to the many ways to get around Bangkok; and a fun, cheap way to travel. But only goes to selected area,actually where the klongs are!

A great experience to see a way of life along the klongs. Quite inexpensive and possible to get on and off at different jettys. From central business district it is easy to get to Chinatown, Khao San Road etc. Water travel is good in Bangkok.

Try this from Pratunam to Asok. Take quite some time waiting even though around 5-6 Empty Klongs passed us. No proper place for on and off to Klongs - you practically just jump when the Klongs near the pier. Not recommended to take it during...More

Always love going for a tour by long boat it gets you in the mood for Bangkok. The diversity has to be seen to be believed.

We loved using this mode of transport. Whilst it iOS obviously restricted to the waterways it is a fascinating way to get from place to place and see the "real' Bangkok residents getting around their daily business. Too be honest we used this ore as...More

Klongs are like roads and are a thoroughfare for boat traffic. You can go to the touristy area of Bangkok's Klongs and stop at eateries etc. There are some people selling things, nothing you can't get elsewhere.

Not really! There are very limited chances to shop en route, though there are a few vendors stationed along the banks, and the occasional vendor out on a boat.
