What to Expect
Make your way to a bicycle base camp in Bangkok, and sip a coffee or tea as you’re fitted with a bike and helmet. Set out on a route that follows quiet back streets, pausing at the Old Customs House to learn a bit of Bangkok’s long trading history. Pedal through a predominantly Muslim community on your way to Chinatown, where you’ll see a historic shrine, market streets, and dozens of the neighborhood’s iconic street vendors. Climb off your bike at Pak Khlong Talat, one of the city’s most famous flower markets, and then try some treats from a nearby stall. Hop on a ferry to cross the Chao Phraya River and then keep riding to the Temple of Dawn (Wat Arun) and Wat Prayoon, following a quiet river path back to the starting point—a relaxing end to your Bangkok adventure.
