Enjoy this half-day tour through unseen parts of Bangkok away from the hustle and bustle of tourist trails. Learn and see how daily life passes by for Bangkokians as you explore part of the Thai capital which you will never see on your own and brings you to colorful places using an almost traffic-free route.
  • Escape Bangkok's bustle on a bike tour
  • Explore in a small group for a more personalized experience
  • Stray from the beaten path to avoid crowds
  • Choose from a morning or afternoon departure
What to Expect
Your tour begins at a central Bangkok location, where you’ll greet your guide and get to grips with your bike. Once you feel confident, you’ll head away from the city’s bustling center and cycle past villas to a local community, where you’ll have the chance to interact with residents and learn about their way of living. On arrival at the Chao Phraya River (Mae Nam Chao Phraya), you’ll board a traditional Thai long-tail boat and cruise over to what’s considered the green lung of Bangkok. After exploring the verdant area, you’ll stop for a traditional Thai meal and visit a Buddhist temple that attracts few crowds. After a stop at an open-air Muay Thai boxing school, you’ll return to your original departure point in central Bangkok.
