Backwaters of Bangkok

Itinerary

Backwaters of Bangkok

Day 1: Bangkok

Meet your group and your guide at the Go Beyond Travel Center, who will go with you to the nearby pier to board our long tail boat. From here you'll move down the Chao Phraya, the main river in Bangkok, with amazing backdrop views of the Bangkok skyline before making a turn to enter the klongs. You will pass a range of local wooden stilt houses with clothes hanging to be dried in the sun, a local "7 eleven", klong style. Feel the atmosphere of having entered the klongs. You will hear Thai music being played from the houses, you will see birds looking at the trespassing boats, if you are lucky, you will spot one of the sunbathing lizards. 
The first stop is at the temple Wat Khun Chan where you will be inspired by the postmodern temples on one side of the klongs and the feeling of old days on the other with the beauty of the river crossing through the landscape. From there it's onwards to the Artist Village, with old wooden walkways with artists, an old barber shop, an old grocery, vintage posters, colors of freedom, and a small stupa licking the sunlight. Feel the quietness surrounding this place. A stop will be made where you can feed holy Catfish. It's a remarkable sight when hundreds of fish come to the surface seemingly out of nowhere!  
Upon leaving the klongs you will see several houses on stilts and how locals live in small houses on the river. Then we leave the quietness and go back to the noisy Chao Phraya River. Your trip ends around noon at a pier near the Royal Palace so that you visit the nearby temples on your own, continue to the shopping malls, or return to your accommodation.
