Bangkok by bike

Bangkok roads conjure up images of traffic jams stretching from sunrise to sunset; the last thing you'd want to do is try to battle through that on a bike! Peaceful Bangkok Noi however, on the Thonburi side of Hong Kong, is an entirely different story. An area that few people know about, this is the perfect place for an invigorating half-day, two-wheel adventure, spanning a gentle 20km through Bangkok's lesser-known territory. Enjoy an insightful commentary on local customs, history and culture at each stop from your local, English-speaking guide. Crossing the Chao Praya River, you'll soon lose yourself in an intriguing network of narrow roads and waterways. Historical records suggest the old Bangkok Noi dates back to around 1546AD. Begin your journey on mainland Bangkok near Khao San Road in Banglamphu, winding through the back streets of Suburban Bangkok, along the river, and cross the famous Rama VIII Bridge. Traverse a local community who famously concoct an addictive mixture of betel nut, lime and a mulberry leaf you can try. Passing the King's Royal Barges, you'll follow a well-worn path along Bangkok Noi Canal to the spectacular Wat Arun area, well known for its intricate architectural design, fascinating history, and religious diversity seen in its beautiful Buddhist temples, Mosques and Portuguese Churches. Take a spin back across the Chao Praya River to Pranakorn, via the Memorial Bridge built in 1929 to mark Bangkok's 150th anniversary. Take in the largest seated Buddha in Thailand at Wat Suthat, before checking out the giant swing Sao Ching Cha, an impressive installation representing the movement of the God Shiva. We guarantee you'll catch the Bangkok biking bug!
