Overview
This 3 hour bike tour will show you the real Bangkok. Highlights of the tour are the exploration of Chinatown’s narrow alleyways, markets and backstreets as well as the charming local areas of Thonburi.
Highlights
  • See more of Bangkok on a bike tour of the city's backstreets
  • Explore winding alleys and hidden markets inaccessible by coach or car
  • Stray from the beaten path in order to avoid large crowds 
  • Stop to sample food and browse shops without worrying about parking 
  • Choose from a morning or afternoon start time
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.

We did the 3 hour bike tour from 8am-11am and it was a great activity for the climate in Bangkok. The bike staff were kind, knowledgable, and took great care of the safety of the group. It was quite the adventure to navigate through the narrow back streets and on the actual

I am 64 years old and was concerned the ride would be too hard . I need not have been concerned it was all very steady and flat. It went along all the back roads and paths. Really good to see a different part of the city. Our guide was called Cola and Tata they really looked

I did the 9 hour tour. Our guides were very nice people, and I also enjoyed getting to know the other people on the tour. However. I think the tour would be better on foot. I felt like I couldn't take in the scenery because I was too focused on not falling. Most of this tour was
