Touring guide of Thonburi District in Bangkok City for your next vacation in Thailand.
Thonburi district in Bangkok is located on the west side of Chao Phraya River where you can see more of the "real" Thailand away from the highrise hotels and shopping complexes of the main Bangkok city districts.
The Thonburi canals network off the river where long tail khlong boats can take you on tours to the floating markets, floating vendors selling cooked food and where you can see the different communities and daily life of locals. Take a fixed price public tour because private charter long tail boats can be very expensive.
Wat Arun would be the "must see" in Thonburi. Other attractions are the Royal Barge Museum, Wat Rakhang, Wat Prayoon, Wat Kalayanamit, Pinklao Cineplex Shopping complex, Santa Cruz Church, many more markets and museums.
