Small Teak Boat Canal Adventure - Weekday
One Day Local Experience on the Water
Are you curious about what is the old Thai living style like? If you can give us a day, we can take you away from the Bangkok City’s hassle and bustle and give you a glimpse of the canal-side life-style. This tour takes you on a journey by our small teak boat and you will get to see an eclectic and colorful scenery of the local canal-side communities. Weekday tours are more relaxing and more laid back than weekend tours. (We travel inside of canals only)
