Khlong touring in Bangkok along the Chao Phraya and beyond

Khlong touring in BangkokKhlong touring in Bangkok along the Chao Phraya and beyond |  Bangkok, Thailand  | On a very hot and humid day, it was quite lovely to go on for a long sail onboard a long-tailed speedboat, along the Chao Phraya River and later penetrate the life along the khlongs of Bangkok, enjoy the breeze and every so often a cold splash of water. Our tour began right at our host hotel, the Mandarin Oriental Bangkok, and from there we went on for approximately 3 hours.
