Thonburi Canal

  • Country : Thailand
  • City : Bangkok
  • Description :

    The best way to get a taste of Bangkok’s past is to explore the klongs (canals) on a long-tail boat. On the west side of the river in Thonburi you can get glimpses of what Bangkok was like before the skyscrapers and six-lane expressways. Many people still live on or around the canals so there is plenty to see: traders crisscrossing the water on small boats packed with fruit and drinks, beautifully renovated traditional teak houses, the whole experience made even more enjoyable by the tranquil atmosphere that contrasts with the hustle and bustle on the opposite side of the Chao Phraya River.
