All A-quiver On The River

LUXE City Guides - Bangkok - - Activities -

River Cruises. Only got a few hours? Slap on some sun­block and zip around Kh­long Bangkok Yai on a long­tail boat for a fas­ci­nat­ing look at trop­i­cal wa­ter­front liv­ing, but avoid the snake farm. Lo­cate nice Mr Boat­man at the pri­vate pier at the Man­darin Ori­en­tal (see Ac­com) who will aid you in se­cur­ing a ves­sel (walk through the ho­tel gar­dens, out to the ter­race, but don’t look manky, or you won’t get past the watch­ful foyer staff). Or, go luxe on overnight trips to the glo­ri­ous an­cient ru­ins of Ayut­thaya aboard Manohra Cruises / manohracruises.com / whip­ping around on one of their metic­u­lously re­stored rice barges. Or, choose a cus­tomised day trip or longer three-day jour­neys with Thai River Cruises / thairiver­cruises.com. About 55 mins each way, allow 5 hrs for the round trip incl. lunch.
