Travel on a Rice Barge

This will allow you to observe Bangkok's locals at work as they go about their daily lives. As the afternoon sun begins to rise and the heat cranks up, you'll be treated to a selection of fresh tropical fruit and cool juices to help you stay refreshed.


White Orchard Dinner Cruise
