You can travel the Klongs in many ways, I have tried both the public boats and long-tails (where they are allowed to go). I actually recommend the public boats, since they are absolutely amazingly skilled boat drivers, manouvering the boats on these tiny canals. Just...More

Super cheap and very exciting. We were some of the only tourists using the klongs to get back and forth through the city. Theyre fast and efficient and so cheap you almost feel guilty. We love it! Good for photo ops too

Went on a shared tour on a lazy Saturday. The klongs are canals for transportation and not necessarily a touristic attraction. While worth seeing how some locals live, I would not get out of the way for a visit. In some ways seeing the klongs...More

A good alternative for public transport, fast and cheap. Need to hurry to get on and off. The boat is frequent and you pay on board.

We rented a long tail for an hour (we were five persons), it costed 1.500 (could probably have haggled the price down). It was nice just sitting on the boat who drove us around for a hour. It was a hot day, but the wind...More

Klong boats run upperparalel way of Sukhumvit and really is the cheapest means of transport. Not many foreigners use it but I do love it especially for Pratunam fashion mall or BoBae market. No announcements are made and you need to hop in and out...More

Our tuk tuk driver dropped us to a small jetty with only one boat company. Originally the boat company asked for 700THB each for three of us, but we settled on 400THB each which still felt ridiculously expensive. We were told we would get an...More

I would recommend the tour that is located at the boat dock that is on the Mandarin Oriental Hotel. We have used the service and recommended the service with great results all around.

Klongs are like roads and are a thoroughfare for boat traffic. You can go to the touristy area of Bangkok's Klongs and stop at eateries etc. There are some people selling things, nothing you can't get elsewhere.

Not really! There are very limited chances to shop en route, though there are a few vendors stationed along the banks, and the occasional vendor out on a boat.
