Description

Bike through backstreets, along waterways and into Bangkok's historic heart. Cycle through suburban pockets, past traditional houses and golden temples, while meeting locals along the way. Discover areas untouched by the hectic city. Peeking behind the frantic face of Bangkok, it's as easy as riding a bike.

When people think of Bangkok, they're often reminded of traffic jams that last from sunrise to sunset, and the idea of riding a bike is the last thing they may come by. This half day adventure provides us with an interesting view of one area in Bangkok that few people know about. The biking tour explores Bangkok Noi, the heart and soul of the city. Just across Chao Praya River to the Thonburi side, this area has its own unique style of waterways and small roads. The historical records point to the old Bangkok Noi community being established since King Chai Raja of Ayutthaya Period (AD 1532 - 1546). Bangkok Noi Canal, which was once a part of the majestic Chao Phraya River, flows in a horseshoe shape through the old Bangkok Noi community.

We start our Bangkok tour near Khao San Road in Banglamphu. After a quick bike-fitting and briefing, we head out. We wind our way through the back streets of suburban Bangkok and small lane ways along the riverside. We cross the famous Rama VIII Bridge then pass by a local community well known for its addictive mixture of betel nut, lime and a mulberry leaf.

Passing through the King's Royal Barges, we follow a well worn path along The Bangkok Noi Canal which eventually leads to the spectacular Wat Arun. While having some historic significance, Wat Arun is also well known for its intricate architectural design. This area is also famous for the jostling multicultural religions it houses - hence together you can find Buddhist temples, Mosques, and Portuguese built Churches.

From Wat Arun, we head back across the Chao Praya River to Pranakorn via the Memorial Bridge. This bridge was built in 1929 to mark the city's 150th anniversary. Then we pay visit to another temple called Wat Suthat, home to the largest sitting Buddha image in Thailand.

Our final stop is opposite Wat Shuthat to see the giant swing Sao Ching Cha, which represents the movement of the God Shiva and is reserved for performances during grand ceremonies. And from there we head back to our start point destination to complete the journey.

The day tour of Bangkok is a very gentle 20 km along the backstreets and canals of Bangkok and suitable for anyone who can ride a bike. Each time we stop, our English-speaking guide will introduce us into the local areas' customs, history, culture and way of life. High quality mountain bikes, including helmets, are used on this trip. At the end of this Bangkok tour you are free to continue exploring the area or your guide will assist you in getting a taxi back to your hotel.
