Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Recreational Bangkok Biking, Baan Sri Kung, 350/151 Rama III Road, Soi 71, Bangkok 10120 Thailand

At our office/lounge we have a a small briefing before jumping on our bicycles and start the adventure.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Wat Yannawa, 40 jaroenkrung Rd., Yannawa, sathorn, Bangkok 10120 Thailand

Not the Wat but the district! This part of Bangkok is part of the business districts. We'll ride through small communities and backstreet roads avoiding as much as possible the daily traffic. By doing so you will get to places normally any tourists will come. Visit a local elementary school in a very narrow street.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Chao Phraya River, 780/488 Charoen Krung Road, Bang Kho Laem, Bangkok 10120 Thailand

Like all urban rivers, the history of the Chao Phraya is intertwined with the city it flows through. The original site was chosen by early settlers because of its fertility and abundant fish. Later King Taksin, after the fall of Ayutthaya to the Burmese, located his new capital here, on the western banks today known as Thonburi. In 1782 King Rama I, finding the eastern banks more favourable, founded modern Bangkok and celebrated the occasion by building some of the world's most beguiling temples. Later still the canals it feeds became famous, earning Bangkok its 'Venice of the East' epithet. And, meanwhile, eminent Western authors like Maugham, Conrad and Coward were singling out the Chao Phraya as one of their favourite spots in the Far East. We will cross this river twice by long-tail boat.


Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Bangkachao Pier, ท่าเรือกำนันขาว 33 Soi Phetchahung Rd, Tambon Bang Kachao, Amphoe Phra Pradaeng, Chang Wat Samut Prakan 10130, Thailand

Bang Krachao island is a green oasis right in the heart of Bangkok. This urban jungle is actually visible from the higher floors of many apartment blocks along Sukhumvit Road, Sathorn Road and Narathiwat Road, however, it remains unknown to most travelers.

Bang Krachao is nothing like the tropical paradise of Koh Lipe or Koh Kood. However, it is unique and amazing in its own right.

Bang Krachao is actually a man-made island located in the Chao Praya River. Years ago a canal was cut allowing cargo boats to shorten their journey along the river. Bang Krachao is commonly referred to as the "Lung of Bangkok", this is due to the huge amount of trees which eat up the city’s air pollution. There are thousands of mangrove trees around the perimeter of the island and plenty more jungle within the island itself.

In a rapidly developing city, Bang Krachao is one place which has managed to withstand change. So, you better visit before it’s too late!

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Sri Nakhon Khuean Khan Park And Botanical Garden, Soi Wat Rat Rangsan Bang Kachao, Phra Pradaeng 10130 Thailand

Sri Nakhon Khuean Khan Park and Botanical Garden is located in Bang Kachao Sub-District, Samut Prakan Province with an area over 200 Rai. This place was established for being the source production of fresh air, the public park for relaxing and exercising for the people. Also, it is a place for ecosystem education on plant species and animals both local and within nearby area. Therefore, it compares as one of an oasis for the city people who want to experience nature, the local way of life and escaping Bangkok’s chaos.

The garden’s characteristic is a combination of public parks that the landscape has been arranged beautifully. It consists of aquatic plants, local plants that are able to grow within brackish water and preserve the original agricultural garden which was the original fruit garden. This park and botanical garden is a Greenfield that the government declared to be “the lungs of Bangkok.” A wooden bridge is for visitors to stroll on peaceful and shady area, including the 7 meters high tower view that can capture the whole scenery of this area. Other than the botanic garden, there is so Bang Nam Phueng Floating Market which opens every Saturday and Sunday (we visit this on our Weekend edition).

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Muay Thai at Klong Dao Stadium, Klong Dao Beach, Ban Sala Dan, Ko Lanta 81150 Thailand

Not this big stadion but at a local Thai Boxing School we'll explain you some on this very popular Thai sport and it's history. If we're lucky the school has some students exercising.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Wat Bang Nam Phueng Nok, Off Bua Bueng Phatthana, Phra Pradaeng 10130 Thailand

Although we absolutely don't stop at every temple we pass by, there are some temples/sights stopping for and not mentioned in the list of "attractions" in the area. We'll stop at a local Hindu statue/temple, have a meal at a local restaurant and much much more. Let us surprise you

This was an amazing way to see some hidden gems of Bangkok in a close up,intimate way. Nisha, our guide, was knowledgeable and courteous and a lot of fun to spend the afternoon with. The tour included visits to inner city community, local kindergarten, small garment factory community as well as the jungle paths of Sri Nakom Khaunkhan Park. Bikes were in excellent shape and it was a lot of fun to cross the river with the bikes in a small boat.

Amazing 4 hours where we cycled through so many different areas, went on a longtail boat twice across the river, fed some fish, watched so many families enjoying themselves away from the hustle and bustle of Bangkok.
Nischa our guide made our trip perfect - amazing tour guide. Would do again

Good value for your money. Our tour guides name was Best. He has a very good positive attitude and spoke good English. It was a comfortable bike through through the city, shuttle boat across the river, and a unique bike ride in the jungle area of Bangcock. Best offered good explanations of the sites and answered questions. We went to feed the fish and saw a lot of the country side of Bangcock. The roads are fairly narrow during parts of the trip so i would recommend you are somewhat comfortable riding a bike prior to this activity. The local lunch place best took us to had delicious food!

We really enjoyed our tour, our guide Sao was very knowledgeable and obviously enjoyed her job. It was very hot and I forgot my cap not a good idea. The first part of the tour is on Bangkok roads which was easy but a little exciting, mixing it with the traffic. We then visited the slums which was interesting before we arrived at the river and had the long tail boat crossing to the main area of jungle / national park. Riding around the lush green swamp / park was the best bit. We got to feed the fish, we saw a few monitor lizards and then stopped at a local cafe for a typical Thai meal which was good. Then back on the bikes to start our ride back. You do need a level of riding skill for me that would be the ability to balance as the raised narrow cycle ways are quite tricky if you are prone to a few wobbles. That aside, we really enjoyed it and they send you a lovely video after. Well worth a try and Sao our guide was great.
