Bangkok – Chao Phraya River and Thonburi Khlongs

Our private tour on a long tail boat started and ended at the Sathorn Pier.  We headed north along the Chao Phraya River eventually turning west to the village of Thonburi.  Here, you will see different housing from “modern” to “falling into the water”.  This is just a small glimpse of how people in Thonburi live.
