Itinerary:

When people think of Bangkok, often it conjures up images of traffic jams that last from sunrise to sunset and the thought of riding a bike gives people nightmares. We’re here to show you that pedal power is the way forward in Bangkok! This Bangkok bike tour gives you an interesting insight into an area of Bangkok that few people know about, the very heart and soul of Bangkok - Bangkok Noi.

You’ll start your Bangkok tour near Khao San Road in Banglamphu, and after a quick bike fitting and briefing, you’ll head out ready and raring to go. You’ll begin by winding your way through the back streets of suburban Bangkok and small laneways along the riverside, and cross the famous Rama VIII bridge then ride through a local community. No busy highways for you, this is the real Bangkok and you’ll be journeying right through the heart of it!

 

You’ll follow the path along the Bangkok Noi Canal, which will lead you to the spectacular Wat Arun. The relaxing bike ride here won’t make you short of breath, but this unbelievable emblem of Bangkok is definitely set to take your breath away. This temple is known for its intricate architectural design and historical significance, and you’ll take a moment at this point to drink in the view and learn about Wat Arun and the surrounding neighbourhood from your local guide.

 

From Wat Arun, you’ll head back across the river to Pranakorn, over the beautiful Memorial Bridge. Here, you’ll pay a visit to another gorgeous temple named Wat Suthat, home to the largest golden seated Buddha in Thailand.  The sight of this giant Buddha is another unforgettable Bangkok moment, and the temple it sits in is equally magnificent.

 

If those two temples weren’t legendary enough, your final stop on this city tour in Bangkok will take you to Sao Ching Cha, a giant swing which represents the movement of the God Shiva, and each part of the swing represents different parts of the Earth. Get ready to snap your third epic Bangkok landmark photo with this one, it’s a gem!

 

From here, you’ll head back to where the journey began to finish your Bangkok bike adventure, where you can continue to explore or your local guide will be able to give you directions back to your accommodation. This day tour is a gentle 20km journey through the backstreets and canals of Bangkok, and is suitable for anyone who can ride a bike. No pro skills or wheelie champion medals necessary! We’ll provide you with bikes and helmets, as well as all that local know-how that our Bangkok team are full of.

 

When you’re deliberating what to do in Bangkok but don’t know where to start, make sure you don’t miss out on this unique and thrilling way to see the city. The decision is easy as riding a bike!

excellent tour! it was great to see a part of Bangkok that we would have likely not seen walking around ourselves

Our guide, who asked us to refer to him as Ah as his given name was quite difficult for us to pronounce, was excellent. His English was great and he gave us the perfect amount of historical and current information about the various sights. We loved how the trip took us through back streets which we would never have otherwise seen. It was fantastic to see how the locals live. I have no hesitation in recommending this trip. In fact, we are still traveling through Thailand and are still saying that we wish we could take Ah traveling through the country with us!
