From city to the greens, our guide provided explanation and showing us a different Bangkok.
Credit to the 4 very nice participants in my tour, it's really great and fun :
We travelled to Thailand a few days before joining a tour of IndoChina and booked this ride to fill in a half day and see a bit more of the non-touristy parts of Bangkok and the surrounding countryside. There were only three of us on our session, my wife and I plus our guide, Aon I think I spelt that correctly.
Aon took us on a ride through the backstreets of Bangkok where we got to see how the working Thais lived - quite an eyeopener. All our questions were answered openly and we got to understand a lot more about how people lived, both the good and bad aspects. We then took a ferry over to the Green Bangkok area where we cycled around on raised roads through the smallholdings. It was great to get clear of the city for a while and not have to breath traffic fumes. Plenty of wildlife, including large green spiders, and a welcome stop for a drink and snacks. Back on the ferry to the city and a short ride through the crazy traffic back to base. A great way to spend 4 hours or so to see a very different side to Bangkok with a truly excellent guide. Bikes were fine. Highly recommended.
