    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Pass By: Chao Phraya River, 780/488 Charoen Krung Road, Bang Kho Laem, Bangkok 10120 Thailand

    Our guide and your own private await you in the morning at the riverside’s boat pier at around 07:30 hrs and we will sail over the Chao Phraya River to catch a morning glimpse of life from the water. We first head towards to Thonburi, the western part of Bangkok, situated on the right side of the Chao Phraya River. Its many canals had originally given Bangkok the name “Venice of the East.” Passing by boat along the canals gives you a first-hand impression of the scenic life along Bangkok’s waterways. Passing impressive sights such as the Royal Barges Museum (closed for visits until end 2019) and the Wat Arun from the water are an amazing site.

    Pass By: Temple of Dawn (Wat Arun), 34 Wang Doem Road Wat Arun, Bang Kok Yai, Bangkok 10600 Thailand

    We first head towards to Thonburi, the western part of Bangkok, situated on the right side of the Chao Phraya River. Its many canals had originally given Bangkok the name “Venice of the East.” Passing by boat along the canals gives you a first-hand impression of the scenic life along Bangkok’s waterways. Passing impressive sights such as the Royal Barges Museum and the Wat Arun from the water are an amazing site. The name of Wat Arun literary means "Temple of the Dawn", but the most beautiful view of it can be seen from the east side of the river at sunset.

    Pass By: The Grand Palace, Na Phra Lan Rd, Maharaj Pier next to Wat Phra Kaeo Temple Complex, Bangkok Thailand

    The Grand Palace is an architectural wonder of golden stupas, walls and pillars encrusted in shining and colorful mosaics. Previously the residence of past Kings of Thailand, you will see from the water (view only, no visit included) once used for different occasions; the Reception Hall, the Coronation Hall, the Throne Hall, the Royal Guest House and Wat Phra Kaew. The palace served as the official residence of kings of Thailand from the 18th to the mid-20th century. The most famous building within the palace grounds is Wat Phra Kaew and this is regarded as the most sacred Buddhist temple in Thailand. Construction of the temple began when King Rama I moved the capital from Thonburi to Bangkok in 1785. In the main temple building houses the Emerald Buddha; carved from a single piece of jade, it is the most revered object in Thailand.

    After this waterways exploration, we use our long tail boat to bring you back to the hotel pier of your hotel along the River of Kings approximately 12:30 hrs. This excursion is only operated in the morning.
