Take a water taxi in Bangkok

One of the most convenient and exotic types of transport in Bangkok is the water. Boats are a great way to get around the famous Riverside area of Bangkok with its many historical attractions, temples and architecture, and also to explore the 'klongs' (canals) for a glimpse of Bangkok from the past. 
Several types of boats (express boats, river taxis and tail-boats) run up and down the Chao Phraya River. They connect the local suburbs on the Thonburi side and along the river, while ferries can be used to cross the river at various points.You can reach anywhere quickly by boat, bypassing the traffic on roads. 
Water taxi is a boat that you can catch anywhere and they will take you wherever you need. They operate up and down the river and cost varies depending on the length of the journey. 
There are five different types of Express Boat River Taxis: No flag (Local Line), Blue Flag Line (tourist boat), Orange Flag Line, Yellow Flag Line and Green Flag Line. Blue Flag (Tourist Boat) stops when you want and operated daily from 09:00 to 19:00. The fares are 40 baht per trip or 100 baht for an all-day pass with unlimited journeys allowed. At every stop English speaking staff will call out clearly over a microphone and ask if anyone wants to alight at that stop. The boat will not stop if there are no passengers to get on or off. Staff will explain the sights the river on either side in between the stops.

31st Jan Southeast Asia Tour

31st January Southeast Asia tour was our first experience with Flamingo.  You exceeded our expectations from professionalism to accommodations, food, transportations and of course  carefully  chosen sightseeing places from modern Singapore to acient Thailand.

Jayraj is an outstanding and very knowledgeable tour guide. His passion to explore the world is impressive.  His proffesional attitude towards all of us was remarkable. 

Also thanks to all working behind the scene who made this trip memorable.
Sales team and accounting team including your agent Sangitaben in US were very cooperative.

For family oriented people like our group, some recommendations from local tour guide for nightlife shows could have been avoided and less shopping time can allow more places to cover.

We will not hesitate to refer Flamingo to our families and friends for their vacation experience.
