Overview
Exploring Bangkok by car or coach means you miss out on the winding alleys and hidden squares that imbue the city with charm. Discover Bangkok’s backstreets on a bike tour for a great introduction to Thailand’s capital. Pedal past the shops and markets of Bangkok Chinatown (Yaowarat), stopping to sample food and browse market stalls without the hassle of finding a parking space. Plus, choose from a morning or afternoon departure time to suit your schedule.

What to Expect
Begin your cycling tour in the heart of Bangkok Chinatown (Yaowarat), where you’ll greet your guide and board your bike. Pedal through winding alleys replete with shops and stalls selling Thai produce, and stop to pick up artisan souvenirs such as Buddhist amulets and recycled truck engines.  See locals worshiping at hidden temples and with luck, witness ritual paper burning before you cross the Chao Phraya River (Mae Nam Chao Phraya) on a ferry. Conclude your tour by pedaling through the tranquil residential  streets of Thonburi, formerly the capital of Thailand. Your guide is happy to provide further recommendations for your vacation.
