Chachoengsao Day Trip Including Bang Pakong River Cruise from Bangkok

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Begin your tour with an early morning pick-up from your central Bangkok hotel and set out on the around 2-hour journey to Chachoengsao. Admire the scenery as you leave the city behind and pass through a patchwork of rice paddies, farmlands, and canal ways, dotted with traditional villages and Buddhist temples.

    Make your first stop at the historic market of Talad Khlong Suan, which has been held on the banks of the Prawet Burirom Canal for over 100 years. Soak up the atmosphere of the lively market as you browse the stalls, stroll around the village’s traditional wooden houses, and perhaps sample some local delicacies (own expense).

    Back on the bus, continue to the grand temple of Wat Saman Rattanaram, famous for its collection of Buddhist statues, most notably a Giant Reclining Ganesha. After marveling at the temple’s unusual architecture, pause for lunch at a local restaurant and indulge in some typical Thai cuisine.

    After lunch, head down to the riverside and hop aboard for a boat cruise along the Bang Pakong River. As you glide downstream, admire views of Koh Lad Island and get a feel for life along the river as you pass the fishing boats, tiny villages and lush farmlands of Chachoengsao Province.

    Jump off to visit Wat Pho Bangkla, another striking temple, renowned for its magnificent reclining Buddha and trees filled with fruit bats. Nearby, the opulent Wat Paknam Jolo is a visual feast, dripping with gold. There’s time for one final stop, at the Palm Sap Village, where you’ll get chance to taste delicious palm juice.

    Finally, journey back to Bangkok, where your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.
