Explore the mysterious district of Chinatown, the heart of downtown Bangkok, and discover alleys leading to forgotten temples, exotic markets and striking architecture. Cross the river to visit the historic sites of the multicultural Thonburi district.

Description

Suited for all riders, this tour exhibits Bangkok's authentic dichotomy where, within mere street blocks, the lively bustle of Chinatown melts into the soothing embrace of country back roads.

The tour begins amidst the morning commotion of Chinatown. We'll explore the goings-on of a spirited street market before untangling ourselves (and our bikes) from the Chinatown hustle to find calmer surroundings. Crossing the mighty Chao Phraya River, our trail changes pace, bending gently through the back roads in the Thonburi district. Off the beaten track, we'll see lesser-known temples, markets, and sites, including the Princess Mother Memorial Park. A well-kept secret, the park sees few tourists despite its magnetizing ambiance and attractions. Among the park's arching branches stands a small museum, historically rich and well-worth the visit.

Back on the trail, we'll continue to the Bangkok favorite, Temple of Dawn (Wat Arun). This architecturally impressive structure features five towering prangs adorned by broken pieces of Chinese porcelain. Its construction symbolized an earthly version of the layers of heaven, and admirers attest that mystic spirit is evident still.

From here, we'll change transport by boarding a boat to take us to the Royal Barge Museum. Off the tourist routes and literally on the Chao Phraya River, this museum is renowned for its display of gilded barges that stretch in narrow lengths up to 46m.

More than a great view, this tour is a memorable way to experience Bangkok's treasures.

This is a very gentle 15-km ride along quiet back roads and suitable for anyone that can ride a bike. We ride as a group with experienced cycle guides setting a gentle pace and stop often to visit points of interest and allow everyone to catch up. Our guides are knowledgeable on the local area and customs and explain the history, culture and local way-of-life each time we stop. Water is included as well as a bike and helmet.

    Drop-off at Select Hotels in Bangkok

We selected the luxury course as it was our wedding anniversary. The seats were larger and the plates were more luxurious than the general course and I was convinced of its good value. As it was a weekend night most of the tables were full and it appeared that the service time was slightly affected by this. At one point in the night, what appeared to be a well-dressed server said to me "monsieur, kiss your wife" as he took a photo of us. I thought it was a free service but later was charged EUR 15 for the photo. Regardless, the food was delicious and the ambiance was perfect, making for a spectacular night. <Translated by Veltra.com> I do recommend getting out of your seat to see the Eiffel Tower when it lights up.

We selected the luxury course as it was our wedding anniversary. The seats were larger and the plates were more luxurious than... the general course and I was convinced of its good value. As it was a weekend night most of the tables were full and it appeared that the service time was slightly affected by this. At one point in the night, what appeared to be a well-dressed server said to me "monsieur, kiss your wife" as he took a photo of us.

We reserved the 20:30 cruise for 9 people to celebrate my wedding and my father's birthday. We had a lovely table with a fabu...lous view out into the Paris night. All of the service staff had nice smiles and moved with energy, contributing to the good dinner atmosphere. The live piano music and the night view matched perfectly and enhanced the cruise experience. I added the free birthday cake option (the dessert is brought out with candles) and the bottle of champagne (EUR 60). I was satisfied with the dinner. I recommend the free service for anybody who wants a birthday surprise. There was also a service where a photographer offers photos during the dinner for a fee. Of course, the service staff were more than happy to snap photos of us with our smartphones. I also recommend to go out onto the boat deck when passing by the Eiffel Tower. There was a happy and friendly mood among all of us on board. I am very happy with VELTRA. All of my questions were responded to by email in a timely and kind manner. For those who are interested in a birthday surprise, I can recommend this activity. <Translated by Veltra.com> more
