What You Can Expect
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.
We had a great time on our tour with Woody! We explored cool parts of New and Old Bangkok that I wouldn't have ever seen. He was very knowledgable about the deep history and current state of affairs of all of the place we visited and saw. We also stopped frequently along the way to sample some tasty foods and drinks and learn how they were made. It was pretty warm outside, but the ride was easy enough that it wasn't an issue. Woody even went above and beyond and walked us to our next event after our tour was over.
I can't recommend this tour highly enough. I saw a ton, learned a lot, had some good food and drinks, and burned a few calories. Check it out, you'll get a unique and fun experience of the city!
I was the only person on this small group tour which was a terrific experience. My guide J was super friendly and very knowledgable about BKK and Thai culture. As others have said, this is a very interesting, back alley ride. You see things most tourists would never find on their own. Some of the route is very narrow, blind corners, animals in the way, all adding to the unique experience. If you are looking for things to do in BKK that are out of the ordinary, this is definitely up on the list. I would also suggest taking the morning ride I did as the heat and traffic of the afternoon may not be as pleasant.
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.
fantastic to see Bangkok on a bike ! good organisation and perfect route !
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.
This tour was amazing!
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.
Do this tour! Fantastic guide, and a behind-the-scenes look at Bangkok's back alleys and neighborhoods. The ride is quite easy and safe. A must do for anyone interested in cycling.
