Kayak in Bangkok

Paddles and Pastimes: Kayak Through Old Bangkok

Step off the beaten path and into a kayak, ready to discover Bangkok from a unique perspective where history unfurls along the water’s edge. As we paddle back in time on the west bank of the Chao Phraya River, you will experience the city’s ancient heart, far from the familiar bustle and into the tranquil embrace of a bygone era.

Your journey begins as you are picked up at your hotel and transferred to our meeting point – an idyllic retreat and small, local cafe, where a briefing over freshly brewed coffee readies you for an excursion through the city’s aquatic arteries. Once prepared, we’ll seek the serenity of Khlong Lat Mayom Floating Market, our gateway to an untouched world.

Gliding from the market’s vibrance, we navigate a breadth of around 6 km, enveloped by a living tapestry of Bangkok’s storied past. The network of canals serves as our corridor to centuries-old communities nestled along the banks, untouched by time’s swift passage.

Midway, we pause at the soul of a 200-year-old settlement, absorbing the spiritual aura of a Chinese Shrine and engaging with the wisdom of the community’s revered shipwright. Here, you are not just a visitor; you immerse yourself within a part of the river’s legacy.

As the journey resumes, our kayaks drift beneath a lush canopy of tropical fruit orchards and amidst heritage houses crafted from teak wood—a landscape that resists the march of modernity, offering a breath of tranquillity and simplicity.

Our paddle culminates gracefully at Wat Monthop, in Taling Chan. Here, in the quietude of village life, we reflect on the day’s revelations before bidding farewell to the tranquil canals and you are transferred back to your hotel.
