Come out of the bustling city of Bangkok and explore the Min Buri countryside. Experience Thai life along the San Saeb Canal, cycle through rice paddies, visit the home of giant flying fox and enjoy landscapes of lush greenery and temple after temple!
The ride starts at the Kamalulislam mosque, the hub of the local Muslim community. Riding along the canals, you will catch a glimpse into the harmonious lifestyles of Thai families, as well as seeing fish farms, working rice mills, traditional Thai wooden houses and a traditional medicine shop. We visit the bizarre temple of Phurt Udom Pol where we have chance to visit Buddhist heaven and hell while waiting for lunch. We continue our cycling for another 10km to the old market town of Nong Chock. We then trade bikes for boats and complete the journey with a river cruise down the Saen Seab canal back to the mosque.
This is a gentle 40-km ride along country 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.
