While most people think of Thailand’s sprawling capital Bangkok as a hectic array of tuk-tuks, vendors and crowded streets, it is also a city that relies on its intricate waterways, canals and rivers thus being labeled the ‘Venice of the East’. Life on the river is a unique way to explore one of the oldest capitals in the orient and seeing it at a calmer more serene pace is all part of Anantara’s journey by Anantara Cruises.
