tour details

Cycling is an eco-friendly and healthy way to explore historic sites in Bangkok. Our gentle, easy, 15km trip on quiet back streets will take you to beautiful Wat Arun on the banks of the Chao Praya, and to the fascinating Royal Barge Museum where you can admire the elaborately decorated boats. We’ll also explore lively Chinatown, before heading across the river to less visited, peaceful Thonburi, where the well-maintained Princess Mother Memorial Park and Museum are well worth a visit. We’ll go off-the-beaten-track to look at some less well-known temples and try a local dessert that originates from the first Portugese settlers in long-ago Siam. Our experienced guides will ensure the pace is easy and that everyone can keep up, and will make sure you keep hydrated in the tropical climate.

tour description

Our half day cycle trip is a fascinating glimpse into the Bangkok of old. We take in some of the more popular Bangkok Landmarks: Chinatown, Wat Arun (Temple of the Dawn), but we also goes off the beaten path and show you some lesser known sites that are not on the tourist map. We start by exploring the bustling Chinatown area (Yoawarat) before crossing the Chao Phraya to the more serene and often less visited temples and sites of Thonburi. We ride along quiet back roads of this area stopping at the occasional market as we head to the Princess Mother Memorial Park and museum, although small, this is well kept and well worth a visit. Some lesser known temples, the Chao Praya river and a sampling of a local Thai dessert that has it origins from the Portuguese who settled here, Wat Arun (Temple of the Dawn) and the Royal Barge Museum are all part of this interesting and varied bike trip. This is a very gentle 15-km ride along quiet back roads and suitable for anyone that can ride a bike. We ride as a group with experienced cycle guides setting a gentle pace and stop often to visit points of interest and allow everyone to catch up. Water is included as well as a bike and helmet. Van transfer from hotels in the city to the starting and ending point of the cycling trip are included.
