What You Can Expect

Best Bangkok Small-Group Bike Tour

Bangkok Bike Small Group Adventure Tour

Make your way to the lobby of the Viengtai Hotel, Rambutri Road, Banglamphu (runs parallel to Khao San Road) to meet your guide. You'll travel together by taxi or minivan to the starting point of this exciting tour. After a quick bike fitting and briefing you'll head out near Khao San Road in Banglamphu.

Your gentle 20 km (12.5 miles) morning bike ride travels through Bangkok Noi, the heart and soul of Bangkok. Across the Chao Praya River to the Thonburi side of Bangkok, this area has its own unique style of waterways and small roads. The old Bangkok Noi community has been 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.

Wind your way through the back streets of Suburban Bangkok and small laneways along the riverside. You'll cross the famous Rama VIII Bridge then ride through a local community who are well known for producing 'Maak', an addictive mixture of betel nut, lime and mulberry leaf.

You'll pass the King's Royal Barges and ride along The Bangkok Noi Canal which eventually leads you to the spectacular Wat Arun, one of Bangkok's iconic landmarks. From Wat Arun you'll head back across the Chao Praya River to Pranakorn via the Memorial Bridge. This bridge was built in 1929 to mark the city of Bangkok's 150th anniversary.

You'll visit Wat Suthat temple, which is home to a 25-foot tall Buddha. Your final stop is opposite Wat Suthat to see the red frame giant swing which represents the movement of the God Shiva which was reserved for performances at grand ceremonies.

Your guide can assist you in getting a taxi back to your hotel if needed.

I had an absolute ball cycling through Bangkok with my lovely young lady guide whose name I unfortunately cannot recall. It was hot but she made sure I had plenty of fluids and even bought me cold drinks and local ice-cream. She took me through narrow lanes, along the canals, to the religious sites and the markets. I would highly recommend this tour. The traffic is busy but I did not feel that I was at any particular risk.

Fantastic tour, would highly recommend the Small-Group Bike Tour. The bike takes you to place which are far to get on foot. Excellent knowledgable and informative guide.

Kong was a great guide and really enjoyed my day.
You get to see another side of Bangkok which you cannot get by taxi or sky train.
Easy cycling so everyone can do it.

Really enjoyed this tour. Saw parts of bangkok that would not normally see markets, canals and temples. Tour leader was great. Went down quiet areas as well as more busy roads but never felt unsafe. Highly recommend.

We had a pleasant Saturday morning ride over bridges and through the back lanes of Bangkok. Our guide was excellent and spoke excellent English. We had a couple on our tour who were unable to continue after we were about half way due to health problems and our guide helped them with finding a taxi back to their hotel before we continued on. A great way to see Bangkok in a different light.

A great way to spend a morning in Bangkok. The guide was excellent and it was a wonderful opportunity to see parts of the city that you would not see normally.

This is a great tour, you are taken through some back alleys and small streets of bangkok. Guide was fun and helpful. Bike ride is not exhausting by any means. Great way to incorporate some physical activity to a vacation while enjoying the scenery.
