Canal Tour Bangkok explore Venice of the East
Venice of the East was another name of Bangkok in the pass. With a network of over hundreds of canals connect one community with another.
The network of Bangkok Canal are branching out of the Chao Phraya River, the river of the kings, which is finally meet at the gulf of Thailand.
Preview of Bangkok Canal Tour
In the past, each bank of the Chao Phraya River had different names. On the other side of the Grand Palace was Thonburi, and the area where the Grand Palace is located was called “Bangkok”. But since 1971, both sides of the river bank have been called Bangkok.
Bangkok Canal history and its name
Bangkok is renowned as the Venice of the East. Nowadays, Bangkok doesn’t seem to need the canals anymore; we have filled up the canals to make roads instead. But examples of the old way of living on the anals can be seen on the Thonburi side.
What can you see in Bangkok Canal?
Sitting on a long-tailed boat to get into the canal is such a nice, breathtaking and relaxing journey. Besides that, you can see the way of living of the Thai people along the way, such as people swimming, cleaning clothes, dish washing, and fish feeding. It is completely serene and a scene totally in contrast to the fast growing section on the Bangkok site.
Canal Tour in Bangkok Canal and Floating Market Tour
Bangkok canal and Damnern Saduak floating market are different places. The Damnern Saduak floating market is outside the town. Meanwhile, the Bangkok canal is in the city which is located in Thonburi area. There are a couple of floating market, which is located in Bangkok canal area which is Klong Ladmayom and Taladnam Taling chan. All sightseeing is similar and different . Outside of town floating market has more number of trees and farm. Meanwhile, floating market near Bangkok or near Bangkok canal is like shopping and snacking place for local tourist.
What is the best time to take Bangkok Canal Tour?
Obviously, you can visit the Bangkok Canal when you are in Bangkok. Well, I highly recommend visiting Bangkok Canal very early in the morning or evening during sunset. This is simply because you will be able to see more local activities at this hour as opposed to large
