What to expect

See more of what Bangkok has to offer in a half day adventure to two heritage sites! In a luxury cruise along the canals of Bangkok Noi and Bangkok Yai, enjoy a scenic trip to Wat Arun and the National Museum of Royal Barges with your English speaking guide for an in-depth cultural adventure around the Venice of the East. Traverse the Chao Phraya River––the River of Kings––and arrive at the Wat Arun pier to explore the sprawling complex of the Tower of Dawn. Considered as one of the most stunning temples in Bangkok’s extensive collection of Buddhist relics, Wat Arun showcases exquisite Khmer architecture and fine craftsmanship enhanced by the light of the sun. Afterwards, go north of the river to visit the National Museum of Royal Barges. The museum is celebrated as an integral part of Thai cultural heritage, housing 8 royal barges gilded in gold and engraved with images of gods and mythical creatures. The tour around two of Bangkok’s finest displays of culture and the arts end with your safe return at the Tha Maharaj pier.
