Half Day Tour
TOUR CODE : CTB021


Let yourself be flown away in a Long-Tailed Boat along the unique canals with lot of old Thai houses, temples and ancient places lining up the whole route of Chao Phraya River trip. An interesting way of seeing different Thai way of life.

Temple of Dawn was built during the glory day of the Ayutthaya period and was originally called Wat Makok. Then Ayutthaya fell to Burma and was later liberated by King Taksin. As he sailed down the river to look for a location to build the new capital, he saw the sunrise at Wat Arun. So it has been known as the Temple of Dawn Since. The most attractive structure in this temple is the 67 meters-high pagoda or Phra Prang, which is decorated with ceramic tiles and fragments of multi-colored porcelain. And the most beautiful view of it is from the east side of the river at sunset.


Then, visit Jim Thompson's Thai House, The remarkable Thai style house was the work of Mr. Jim Thompson, an American who came to Thailand at the end of The Second World War and revived The Thai Silk Industry. His later disappearance in the Malaysian jungles remains a mystery to this day.
