Thai people have been using their boats to travel on the waterways throughout the country for hundreds of years, long before modern roads existed.
In the past, people of Bangkok usually settled by the Chao Phraya River and gradually spread into the core of the country. In the past it was, and still is, a very important waterway for the people of central Thailand. Several people call the banks of the Chao Phraya River home. Many people use the river to get to and from work almost every day. For others, it is a way of life and, ultimately, their main source of income.
Taking a cruise along the legendary Chao Phraya River is the most pleasant way to explore the city once known as ""Venice of the East"".

By taking a boat along the waterways, tourists will still be able to catch a few glimpses of the old Thai way of life.

Trip Was Really Awesome & Wonderful With Flamingo!

Hello. I'm very delighted to share my experience with you all regarding honeymoon trip which was arranged by Flamingo Transworld.
Right from the beginning of the tour from planning to landing back to home, the journey to Thailand was really awesome and wonderful with flamingo
Every staff member especially Rishikesh bhai, Hiralben and Amit bhai  incorporated themselves as if it was their own trip. I was little worried about my trip initially as it was my first international trip, but Constant assistance which was provided by Amit bhai 24×7 throughout the trip made my journey very lucid. 
I literally didn't face any single damn trouble during the trip and all credits goes to flamingo. I look forward to arrange so many trips with these guys and would heavily recommend flamingo to every passenger who seek their domestic and international trips.
