Overview

Escape the bustle of built-up, modern Bangkok on this 4.5-hour leisurely cycle ride around the city’s western side. Ride a ferry to the west bank of the Chao Phraya River, where village-like settlements and canal-side communities hold sway. Absorb the slower tempo as you pedal palm-lined trails and elevated paths; ride a canal boat; and see temples and other secret spots including the canal-side Klong Bang Luang Artist’s House. Biking equipment included.
  • 4.5-hour bike tour of Bangkok’s hidden treasures and neighborhoods
  • Cyle through alleyways and ride a ferry across the Chao Phraya River to western Bangkok
  • Explore the village-like settlements and canalside communities of this slower, traditional area
  • Pedal along leafy paths and see temples, stilted houses, and out-of-the-way treasures
  • Visit the Klong Bang Luang Artist’s House, a canalside gallery with a café and 'stupa' (temple spire)
  • Ride a boat along the canals and learn about local life and culture
  • Bike, cycle helmet, and bottled water included
Meet your guide at the bike shop, situated in an easily accessible location in central Bangkok. Don your supplied cycle helmet, hop on your provided bike, and set off into the vibrant streets behind your guide for your leisurely 8-mile (13-kilometer) ride.

Pedal down alleyways to see the inner workings of the city, and pass through a bustling market on route to the Chao Phraya River. Here, catch a ferry to the western, more traditional districts of Bangkok.

Admire the cityscapes as you sail, and on arrival, cycle through the vibrant canal-woven settlements and communities. See two warehouses that are over 100 years old, and learn about their history.

Trundle along winding, leafy trails and elevated paths to the Klong Bang Luang Artists’ Village, a district of canalside stilted houses, galleries, markets, and temples.

Visit the Klong Bang Luang Artist’s House, a waterside 2-story teakwood house with an art exhibition space and café, all centered around an old stupa (temple spire).

Continue to other out-of-the-way treasures, and learn about the everyday lives and culture of the locals in this slower-paced quarter.

Finally, ride a boat through the canals before your trip concludes at the original departure point.

Stop At:  
Giant Swing
We stop at the Giant Swing, known for its use in a yearly Brahman rice harvest ceremony. The use of the swing was discontinued in the 1930s due to injuries and deaths as men would swing on the giant structure while trying to catch a bag of coins in their mouth. Those who caught the coins could keep them! Situated at the entrance of Wat Suthat, The Giant Swing’s huge size and bright red color makes it impossible to miss!
