Avoid Wat Arun for starting Longtail-Klong-Tour. High prices and unfair handling, as our tour was not the agreed route or duration. There is one dominant elderly lady managing this small-boat-pier at beautiful Wat-Arun and she is dishonest, deciding herself where her guests are heading and...More

It's easy to get around the river but there is alot of litter in the water and it's really choppy at times which is quite scary on a longtail.

Chinatown / Yaowarat
Better known as 'Yaowarat' among locals, Chinatown is
Bangkok's bustling district that never sleeps. During
the day, the main street and its small alleyways are
filled with a vibrant mix of colours, scents and
flavours coming from the roadside restaurants and
all-day markets. The real action, however, happens
after sunset. Surrounded by neon lights, Thais and
tourists alike flock here around dinnertime to feast
