Enjoy a Tuktuk ride

Tuktuk ride, Bangkok

Planning to take a Tuktuk ride? See our information below!


A fun way to explore Bangkok is, of course, a ride in the famous tuktuks. A tuktuk is a three-wheeler where you can sit in the back. These well-known colourful, motorised three-wheel taxis are a convenient and fun mode of transport to get around town. The tuktuk drivers tear around Bangkok, taking you to all sorts of places in the city.

The tuktuk drivers can take you from A to B just like a regular taxi. But if you are planning to visit several sights in the city one after the other, you can also ask the tuktuk driver to take you anywhere throughout the day. Make very good arrangements with your driver! Start with a fixed price for the day (you can negotiate a lot on this) and agree on which places he will take you to. This saves a lot of hassle, you don’t have to negotiate the price every time, and your regular tuktuk driver is ready to go everywhere!

Chao Phraya river cruise, Bangkok

Planning to visit Chao Phraya river cruise? See our information below!


The Chao Phraya is the largest and most important river in Thailand and it flows right through Bangkok. So a very fun and very cheap way to travel from A to B in Bangkok is by boat taxi on the Chao Phraya River. There are several embarkation points all along the river. You buy a boat ticket at one of the counters before boarding the boat. 

Boarding and leaving is at a furious pace and the boat stops at different stops every 5 minutes. Taking the cruise is a fun way to get around and enjoy everything you encounter along the way.  

The main sights in Bangkok can be reached by boat: Wat Arun, Wat Pho and the Grand Palace. By boat, you can easily combine them all in one day.

Wat Arun

Wat Arun Temple, Bangkok

Planning to visit Wat Arun? See our information below!


Wat Arun Temple is one of the most famous temples in Bangkok and is named after Aruna, the God of dawn. The temple is located on the banks of the Chao Phraya River, across from the Grand Palace. The temple is 82 metres high and the tower is covered with ceramic tiles and coloured porcelain. When the sun shines, this gives the temple a beautiful glow, which makes for a pretty picture.  

To reach the top of Wat Arun Temple, you have to climb quite a steep staircase and takes some time, but once at the top, you have a brilliant view of the river and, with clear weather, even the Grand Palace. Therefore, a visit to this temple is well worth the many steps.
