Travel into Bangkok’s intriguing past with an exploration of its historic neighbourhoods alongside the Chao Phraya River. Dating back over two centuries, the riverside community has maintained a diverse cultural heritage. The three-hour programme includes travel aboard a Peninsula river boat and a walking tour where guests will learn about the areas’ unique architecture and history, including the Santa Cruz Church, the Buddhist temple Wat Kalayanamit and the Bangluang Mosque. The five-hour programme also includes a tour of Klong Bang Luang and a visit to The Artist’s House - a renovated 200-year-old wooden residence and gathering place for artists, a traditional Thai puppet show and a long-tail boat ride.
The Chao Phraya River, also known as the River of the Kings, plays an important role in the lives of Thai people. Regarded as the principal artery of the nation, significant parts of Thai history can be traced along the waterways of the Chao Phraya River. As it flows, the river carries with it the history and culture of the country. Old temples, palaces and communities along the Chao Phraya River banks tell all visitors that the River of the Kings has provided livelihoods for the people and has led to the birth of a civilisation. Travelling along Bangkok's riverside is like taking a journey back into time.
