Meet your guide at a prearranged location in Bangkok and travel by taxi or minivan to the launching point of your bike tour near Khao San Road. Once you’re fitted with a bike and helmet, set out on a gentle 12.5-mile ride through the Bangkok Noi district.

Learn about this community dating back to the Ayutthaya period, and cross the Chao Phraya River to Thonburi to explore the waterways, small roads and back streets in this unique part of Bangkok. 

Cycle across the picturesque Rama VIII Bridge then ride past the Royal Barges National Museum and pedal alongside the Khlong Bangkok Noi, a canal that eventually leads you to the magnificent Wat Arun, also known as Temple of Dawn. From this iconic landmark, follow your guide back across the river via the Memorial Bridge, constructed in 1929 to mark the city’s 150th anniversary. 

You'll visit Wat Suthat before your final stop at the Giant Swing (Sao Ching Cha), whose emblematic red frame represents the movement of the God Shiva.

After your morning bike tour of Bangkok, you can ask you guide for assistance getting a taxi back to your hotel.

We had the BEST time with our guide Jackie on this tour! We believe that bike tours are the best way to see new cities and this one did not disappoint. While the Temple of Dawn was amazing to see and was definitely on my list, the non-touristy parts of the tour, through the canal neighborhoods in Thonburi was the highlight of our short trip to Bangkok for sure. Do it!

This was an amazing experience with a friendly and knowledgeable guide. We explored little alleys and backstreets, locations that we would never have found or dared to enter on our own. It was a truly immersive experience that I highly recommend. The other highlights included Kentucky Fried Banana and a rendition of a song on the official name of Bangkok by our guide. It is the longest name for a capital and the locals have a song to help spell it out. Thank you! We will be back with more friends in the future.
